Battlefleet Gothic Armada Teaser Video



A new teaser video for Focus Interactives Battlefleet Gothic Armada is out today. Gothic was one of my favorite specialist game Games Workshop ever produced, so of course anything Gothic oriented catchs my attention.



BATTLEFLEET GOTHIC: ARMADA - TARGET ACQUIRED, TEASER VIDEO READY TO FIRE!

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, the famous tabletop game from Games Worshop adapted into a Real-Time-Strategy video game by Tindalos Interactive, unveils today its first video teaser. 

The game stages the mighty armada of the Imperial Navy's Battlefleet Gothic against the insidious and galaxy-threatening Chaos Black Crusade of Abaddon the Despoiler in dark, deadly and intense space battles from the Warhammer 40,000 universe. This first video teaser is a prelude to intense space combat in command of huge battle cruisers - true metal behemoths - several kilometers long and armed to the teeth.

  1. Well hopefully this'll shut people up about bringing outdated games back.

    Though, doesn't it seem like there's a LOT of GW games coming out? The Warhammer Fantasy Total War, Deathwing, Eternal Crusade, Battlefleet Gothic...

    One of my issues with it is that none of them have been really fantastic.. Space Marine was the closest to a 'blockbuster hit' that GW has had, and the appeal of it burnt out pretty quick..

    1. Says you. I still play Space Marine. In fact, I played a full Exterminatus run last night!

    3. Dawn of War.... All of Them!

    4. Last stand on dawn of war 2 is a staple with my group.

    5. Dawn of war was the best of them. With all the expansions you could play any faction. Awesome.

    6. I still play all the dawn of wars and space marine

    8. Call my back when they rerelease BFG and Epic as miniature games. I'm sure this game will be at least moderately entertaining, but it's not the BFG we've been waiting for.

    9. This is honestly all the BFG you're going to get unless Games Workshop becomes madly successful with every release they make for the next three years.

      And yeah, I forgot Dawn of War. The original and 2 were excellent games that, in my mind, rivaled Starcraft for fun and replayability.

    10. Yeah, I've got back into Dawn of War Soulstorm after I discovered the Ultimate Apocalypse Mod.

      It's literally made the game 1000 times better as you can field almost every available unit for each faction as well as the addition of Tyranids, Inquisition and Daemons... And Titans! INFINITE TITANS!

    11. @DrBored: It wouldn't surprise me to see at least a smaller stand alone game like Dreadfleet for Necromunda, BFG and Epic. With the speed GW is burning through releases now and going heavily into releasing new mini factions, it'll only be a matter of time before they've covered everything. In fact, I'd be extremely surprised if they didn't do this.
      Not gonna holy my breath for a full relaunch of specialist games though.

    12. Why would I should up about how great older games were? This looks cool, but I'd rather have a BFG miniatures game!

      Delete
    13. Outdated? No dropped because they were competing for shelf space in GW stores yes. the last edition of Epic lost a fair few players, the edition before was played much more than 40k in my city (outnumbering 40k players by perhaps 4 to 1!).

      Right now i have a heap of local people scrounging ebay for the BFG miniatures they need. We are going to run a 40k campaign and when i mentioned adding BFG games to that campaign every players excitement leapt up a notch. One player is hunting down two fleets, the Shield of Baal art has them wanting both Blood Angels and Tyranids for BFG.

      The competition for Adeptus Mechanicus ships on Ebay has gotten fierce.

      Outdated? Nope.

    14. There has been many very good GW lincensed games. It's just lately that a lot of trash is coming out. Hate those tablet games.
      Here a list of really good GW games: Some might be outdated ^^
      Shadow of the Horned Rat
      Dark Omen
      Chaos Gate
      Dawn of War I + II
      Space Marine
      (Blood Bowl)

      @Thomas
      Well Dropfleet Commander by Andy Chambers and Hawk Wargames might be something for you then.;)

  2. I hope they include the Adeptus Mechanicus explorator fleet as an add-on someday.

    1. Some rogue traders would be cool too.

      Delete
    2. Agreed! Those and Tyranids!

      How cool would fighting the Battle for Macragge be!

      Delete
  3. Why does it ALL WAYS have to be empire vs chaos? Wouldn't it be cool for a IN battle vs a hive fleet or eldar craftworld? I got nothing againt chaos. I have roughly 7k of chaos. It just seems like every video game they make has chaos in it.

    1. I'd imagine there'll be an expansion following closely behind. Several, probably.

      Delete
    2. If they released more factions, dawn of war style. Then they got my money on this one.

      Delete
    3. Yes. The Forgeworld Tau fleet was beautiful. To this day I still regret not collecting that and the Epic scale Tau.

      Delete
    4. Well that was the basis of the original BFG box and campaign. Though i agree Chaos gets boring in video games with it's ever-present showing up and Jussst asssss Plannnnned! scene cliche. I'd rather see chaos included but not the focus.

      I said for years they should have gone with, and it'd be best for a 2nd edition to do, the Battle of Macragge. Tyranid ships could have been better in plastic (the nautiloid designs were the best tyranid ship artworks they ever did, digital sculpting could make those amazing now!)

      A game where you fight Hive Fleet Behemoth in skirmishes, defiant last stands trying to slow their advance and fight the Battle for Macragge would be awesome.

      Then you could run an Iyanden Campaign with Yriel fighting Chaos, getting exiled then the battle against Hive Fleet Kraken!

      Sacrifice, hubris, a prodigal sons return... good high-drama stuff in plot as well as exciting battles.

      And i really want Adeptus Mechanicus ships too!

    5. 40k has always had humanity as it's focus. What makes the best counter? Betrayers, and mutated ones at that. Chaos really does give the best scope for an antagonist because thanks to the warp and daemons they can literally pull anything nasty out of the bag.

      (But yes, it can wear a bit thin...)

  5. Not a fan of the giant magic wand attached to the prow.

  6. I thought it looked great.

    My only complaint was the intro "Pegi 16". I thought "great, now people are going to think I'm watching pron".

    1. I do not understand your logic?

    2. A play on words on Peggy who is 16 there I'd imagine..

  7. I wonder why there hasn't been a Homeworld mod for BFG, yet.
