Satisfy Your Need For Tactical Starship Combat In Battlefleet Gothic: Armada

If you're still waiting for something to scratch that Homeworld itch — and Deserts Of Kharak didn't quite do it — then the upcoming Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, set in Game Workshop's expansive Warhammer 40,000 universe, might do the trick. It doesn't arrive until March, but it already looks the good.

Along with a "big story campaign" for solo players, Battlefield Gothic will support four-player multiplayer. All the classic races are included — Chaos, Imperium, Eldar and Orks — and going by the video, it feels sufficiently visceral, with Epic's Unreal Engine 4 doing the heavy 3D lifting.

Customisation is supported, so you can tweak your fleet's defenses and weapons, as well as your crew. There's persistence too, so your peeps will accrue experience if you keep them alive between skirmishes.

Battlefield Gothic: Armada is currently available for pre-order on Steam for $US35.99, or $50 Australian. If you do decide to pick it up, you'll be eligible for the "Early Adopter's Edition", which includes the Space Marines fleet and access to the multiplayer beta "a few weeks before release".

        I see more and more of these, exceptionally poor and lazy, examples in news posts across many, once reputable, sites

        It is exceptionally disappointing to see such degeneration of, if not editing, simple care in one's own efforts

        *Edited for grammar (ones to one's)

          You are just begging to have your grammar corrected here. Unless it's deliberate in which case, you're operating at near genius-levels of irony.

          I hovered over the buy button on this in Steam last night... in the end, decided to keep my dollars for Total War: Warhammer. If you need big spaceship battles before then, you should invest in the scintillating Fractured Space.

            Apart from the error in ones (should be one's) please go ahead and correct my grammar

    Can't wait for Battlefleet Gothic!
