The roar of the engines sent shivers down my spine as I watched the teaser trailer for Battlefleet Gothic Armada above. Check it out and let’s hope they don’t screw this one up…

Gothic Armada

The focus of this game as been on a more real time style where you’re controlling the fleet a bit like an RTS. The pace will be slow since its huge capital ships powering through the void around each other but there will be enough frenetic action to make for some seriously deadly action.

As well as the basic mechanics there are some Warhammer 40,000 flourishes. You will be able to order your other ships around within a fleet through setting behaviours to react to certain situations. A captain might however ignore these orders and take the route they see as the best course of action. You can then execute the captain if you feel like it!

You will not only get to control the Imperials but also Chaos, Orcs and even Eldar through the campaign although multiplayer will focus on combatants having an even playing field with both set as the Imperial Navy.

If you’d like to read more about the mechanics of the game HERE as Rock, Paper, Shotgun got a look at it earlier in the year.

The trailer above shows the two big factions of the game for Abaddon and his Black Crusade facing off against the Imperial Navy.

Will you be getting this?
