Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 delayed into 2019

With September dropping out of warp in only a few hours, the publishers of Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 today announced that ah, no, the spaceship-battling RTS will not launch in September after all. It's delayed into January 2019 to allow extra time to polish and improve it (hot tip: paint the game red, it'll run faster), as is the usual delay way. But! The developers…

Sequels for the sequel throne! Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 bringing more WH40K spaceship RTS action

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the Cadian Sector, here comes Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 bursting forth with more Warhammer 40,000 real-time-strategy spaceship combat. Publishers Focus Home today announced a sequel to Tindalos Interactive's 2016 game, saying it will launch some time later this year. Armada 2 boasts many more playable factions, I'm told, with "the Imperial Navy, Space Marines,…

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada Opening Tau Beta Tomorrow

The Tau are coming to Battlefleet Gothic: Armada [official site], the real-time adaptation of Games Workshop's Warhammer 40K spaceship battle boardgame, serving the Greater Good. Those blue fellas will be paid DLC but, in the sharing spirit, from tomorrow they'll be free for Battlefleet players to try in beta for a bit. Maybe you'll like how they think. Maybe you'll want to sign up. Maybe…

Space Marines Invade Battlefleet Gothic: Armada Today

As if space strategy Battlefleet Gothic: Armada [official site] wasn't grim enough, Space Marines will be entering the orbital fray today. In addition to the Tau, which should be added to Battlefleet sometime later, both races are available for free to people who already own the game or who buy it before the end of the day. They'll then be available thereafter as extra DLC…

Battlefleet Gothic – Armada review

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada [official site] is based on a now-defunct table-top game set in the Warhammer 40K universe. And that means that it comes with the same funky blend of fantasy and sci-fi you've come to expect from Games Workshop. Orcs are now "Orks." You plan via a "Tactical Cogitator," that kind of thing. 40K is as familiar as a piece of well-worn furniture around…

Heretics! Battlefleet Gothic: Armada Shows Off Chaos

There is something pleasing about watching a mile-long spacecathedral circling in broadside combat with a mile-long, meat-covered spacecathedral dedicated to ruinous powers. Something to do with pretty space backgrounds, nice giant spacecathedrals, colourful zapbeams, and the very idea of heavily-armed shards of meat, bone, and teeth. I'm less sure about the ship with a big silly red demon heads on top, though. Maybe that's what…

Battlefleet Gothic Does Galactic-Scale 40K In March

It might not openly be about spaceships which listen to The Sisters of Mercy, but I think the spirit's there. I wrote only yesterday that the darkly cute Dawn of War aesthetic seems to be the de facto look for Warhammer 40,000 games, and now here's Battlefleet Gothic proving me wrong, and trying to look like the sort of ornate and broody artwork (think 'powersuited…

Dakka Dakka: Battlefleet Gothic – Armada’s Orks

Orks should not be allowed to pilot spaceships. I imagine their first attempts to reach the stars were a lot like my first attempts to launch a Kerbal Space Program: nasty, brutish and short. And yet, somehow, through a combination of determination and hunger for war, the 'orrible creatures have their own fleets in Games Workshop's spacebiff strategy game, Battlefleet Gothic. The upcoming digital adaptation,…

Ship-Shape: Battlefleet Gothic – Armada In-Game Trailer

I'm taking a break from a preview build of Blood Bowl II to write about Battlefleet Gothic: Armada [official site]. It's a Games Workshop kinda day on my computer while a blistering sun beats down on grimdark Salford just outside the window to my right. I've already written a big preview of what you can expect from the tactical battles of Battlefleet, as well as…

A Tall Glass Of RTS: Etherium’s Free Full Trial Week

"Etherium [official site] is unlikely to work its way into anyone’s list of strategy favourites but if you’re a fan of traditional RTS games, its short bursts of action might be as welcome as a cool pint of H20 during a drought," said our Adam in His Wot I think. Now, I'm not too good on logic, but I believe that means that this game…

Flying Cathedrals Galore In First Battlefleet Gothic Trailer

The first trailer for Battlefleet Gothic: Armada [official site] shows pretty much just a load of flying cathedrals blasting through space while dramatic orchestral music plays, but I don't know what else you'd expect from a game about flying cathedrals fighting other huge spaceships. Adam has seen the game in action but you and I, for now we only get displays of stained glass, arches,…

Feature: ≠ tedium

Etherium review

Etherium [official site] is fast-paced and energetic but it won't leave you suffering from a sugar crash. It can pack a punch but it doesn't burn like a slug of bouron. Etherium is, in fact, like a glass of water. It's not much to look at and while you're drinking it, you might envy those whose refreshments have been invigorated by the addition of sugar,…

Space Wars Are Go: Sci-Fi RTS Etherium Out Today

While some folks clamour for real-time strategy games, I'd quite fancy a spot of real time strategy, divorced from the laughable human 'linear' time. Show me everything, all of it, all at once, forever unfolding and forking down infinite paths. Show me how even one single move - or no moves! - will end in countless tragedies, let me become paralysed with indecision, realise only…

Feature: Despoiler warning

First Look: Battlefleet Gothic – Armada

The news that an adaptation of Games Workshop's Battlefleet Gothic was in development made for happy reading last week but solid facts were thin on the ground. We knew that the game would be real-time rather than turn-based, which was cause for concern in some quarters, and that four factions would be available. Now, following a meeting with the developers yesterday, I have all of…

Holy Ships: Battlefleet Gothic – Armada Announced

Cathedral ships, ahoy! Focus Interactive have announced that they will publish a real-time strategy adaptation of Games Workshop's Battlefleet Gothic. Armada is already in development and we'll be taking a closer look in very near future but the first details emerged moments ago. Fleets will be drawn from four forces - Imperial, Chaos, Eldar and Ork - and ships will be fully customisable, from their…

Etherium Is An RTS, Like In The Old Days

A real-time strategy game, eh? [A bushy eyebrow raised cautiously, revealing a tired but interested eye.] We don't get many of your kind around these parts. Not since... [A silence. A stare towards the horizon.] Well, we don't like to talk about it. Those were hard times. Dark times. [Another silence. Another stare, this time at nothing, or at least nothing anyone else can see].…

Out Of The Beta Quadrant: Stellar Impact

The best thing about space is that it's real. It may or may not be filled with aliens and warring spaceships, but the setting, the background, is actually there! All those galaxies - that's not pretend from out of a book. As much as you may doubt me, they're really all up there (and down, and some on the left too. We are of course…

Stellar Impact Is Still Worth Exploring

It's all space, space, space with you today, Internet. In fact I thought I'd add to that with a sort of reminder post to point to excellent multiplayer spaceship duelling game, Stellar Impact, which you can play for free up to a point (the point at which you have to pay to unlock the later character-advancement possibilities of the game.) Annoyingly, the site died the…

Space Free For All: Stellar Impact

If you were brave/lucky enough to attend our Indie Arcade at the Eurogamer Expo then you might have noticed the quietly majestic Stellar Impact, which is a rather accomplished-looking PvP starship combat game. It's really quite the thing: somewhere between MOBA-style play and classic ship-to-ship naval warfare, with you having out-manoeuvre your opponent, bring a broadside to bear, and so on. What's more is that…
