Battlefleet Gothic: Armada is the RTS videogame adaptation of Games Workshop’s classic tabletop game, pitting the Chaos, Imperium, Eldar, and Orks against each other in visceral space-battles.
Developed with Unreal Engine 4, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada offers deep management of every ship composing the player’s fleet, both during and between battles. From the fastest frigates to the gigantic, miles-long battleships, the player will customize all aspects of his ships: weaponry, defense and support sub-systems, but also crew, captains, and more... each customization affecting the very performances of the ship and the special abilities available during battle. From battle to battle, the admirals and crew of surviving ships will gain experience and promotions, improving the battle-readiness of the ships for future, bigger and more dangerous battles.
Additionally an extensive multiplayer mode with persistent fleets where up to 4 players can battle simultaneously, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada also features a big story campaign, taking place during the 12th Black Crusade and putting players in the middle of the Gothic War that raged between the Imperium and Abaddon the Despoiler. Players will be at the centre of every fight, commanding fleets of gigantic ships as the Chaos unleash a sequential chain of surprise attacks on Imperium worlds – the start of 20 years of warring in the sector.
An expansive single-player campaign across the Gothic sector.
Four factions to command, each one with its own strengths and skills.
Tactical PVP multiplayer offering infinite replayability.
A huge array of authentically recreated Battlefleet Gothic ships.
A real-time strategy experience retaining many of the tactical Battlefleet Gothic elements.
A plethora of lore-abiding skills to fill the player’s arsenal.
Upgrade and apply skills at port Maw

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada reviews and comments

Battlefleet Gothic Armada with a Fleet of Imperials, Green Skins, Eldars or Chaos dominate the Gothic Sector. The Game has several Modis including one Campaigns and Multiplayer Mode PVP 1vs1 or 2vs2. Unfortunately, the Campaign mode is a bit tricky and is not extensively explained. You have to make sure that the Worlds are played with the Arrows at all times, provided you are still allowed to play them and you do not have a prioritized Mission. The Game difficulty Light, Normal, heavy, Even heavier:) Are tough from the Start. So always save nicely. Meanwhile, one gets the Impression that the Game has been made easier, but Heavy is still more than just Heavy and also on the Game Mode Normal you quickly get into Despair. The Ships, which can be bought and spiced up with Fame, are a pure Feast For the eyes. Graphically, as Warhammer fans are used to, the Ships have been incorporated many playful Details. Unfortunately, the Video Sequences have Their own Volume mode; Maximum Hearing damage is called for, as any Volume Adjustment In the Settings is ignored. Laider also launches the Game with several Initial Screens, also with volume to maximum Stop. The Campaign is the Hammer overall. The Multiplayer mode is also really Fun and with a Partner on the Side, the Game will of course be even more interesting and exciting. Here, too, the Ships are upgraded and bought from the small Cruiser, Cruiser to the Battleship With Fame points. With the Fame Points, Damage from a previous Fight can also be repaired, or you expose the Ship to the Rounds and take another one in the Lockdown Time. The Game is pretty successful overall and is really Fun. What else is missing would be larger Maps for a 4 vs 4 Mode. Great Would also be If you could pick the Opponents. At Least a Friend can joinen as a Partner in the 2vs2 Game, with him playing with his own Fleet.

Very good space real-time strategy game. Have HAD BFGA on the Wishlist for a very long Time and let several Sales go to the Country until I was finally able to bring myself to Buy it. The Many negativen/neutral Reviews stopped me from the purchase, but which I then ignored at the last Sale, because I really like the WH40K setting in principle and the Gamesetting very busy Me. I'm glad not to be fooled by it, because the Game is really a brachial piece. The Graphics are breathtaking when you look at the Battles up and close. The Effects are very very vocal and believable. The second Part will definitely find its Way into my Shopping Cart. For Gameplay, I can only say that it reminds us a little of the Total War Franchise. One plays on the Campaign Map turn-based and, depending on the Planets of the Sectors and Subsectors held, has several Action Points that can be invested in Attacks with your Fleet. After opting for a market-/or attacking planetary sector, the Game moves into Real-time Strategy and you command your Fleet, which you put together via a Points system before, on the Battlefield Completely independently. To Help and reduce the Heat of battle, you can switch to Contigator mode (Slow Motion) mode to better plan and prepare your Tactics. The Enemies of the Empire are far superior in Numbers so that one has to decide which planetary/Or sectors are worth defending, because Abbadon the Desticions repeatedly accuses you of hostile Naval Associations that seem to have no End. My Tip: If your Strategy games, especially those in the Same Way as Total War and like to play, then just with it in the shopping cart. It really is a successful W40K Strategy game, which remains captivated and Exciting even after several Hours. Graphics 10/10 Sound 9/10 Gameplay 8/10 Control 8/10 Total 35/40
