Warhammer and Warhammer 40k are some of, if not the biggest names in tactical tabletop wargaming, so it makes sense they would have a massive PC presence, and that presence will only grow larger today with a game about commanding fleets of spaceships that are longer than Manhattan is wide.
Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is the latest in a seemingly never-ending deluge of Warhammer 40k video games. Unlike other Warhammer 40k titles, this real-time strategy game focuses on the titular battlefleets instead of individual units, squads, and heroes, but that’s part of the game’s charm.
Based on the Battlefleet Gothic tabletop game, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is seemingly every wargaming nerd’s dream. Developer Tindalos Interactive boasts the game features hundreds of hours worth of content. Gamers can look forward to three massive single player campaigns, ranked multiplayer, and countless customization options.
As you might have guessed, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is the second entry in the Battlefleet Gothic: Armada franchise. While the first game only featured four factions —six if you count the DLC— Armada 2 launches with 12 factions (divided into a head-spinning 80 sub-factions), which accounts for almost every army in the Warhammer 40k tabletop game. RTS gamers should feel at home regardless of whether they soar through the inky depths of space as a member of the Imperial Navy, a loyal minion of the forces of Chaos, an Ork Warboss, or the Tyranid’s incalculable Hive Mind.
While Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 has already launched, Tindalos Interactive isn’t going to rest on its laurels. The studio plans to update and improve the game for the foreseeable future with additional co-op and multiplayer modes, quality of life improvements, new ships, and an in-development fourth campaign.
Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is a PC exclusive available through Steam. Stay tuned to Twinfinite for more Armada 2 news and updates.
