on January 16, 2015 7:39 AM

Focus Home Interactive announced today with a press release that it will release the RTS Battlefield Gothic: Armada, by Etherium developer Tindalos Interactive.

The game will be based on Battlefield Gothic, the Warhammer 40,000 spin-off that simulates battles in space between fleets.

Four factions will be available: Imperial, Chaos, Eldar and Ork.

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, etc. 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 ship for future, bigger and more dangerous battles.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada has been announced exclusively for PC, and will be developed in Unreal Engine 4. Below you can enjoy the first screenshots from a “very early” version of the game. No release window has been mentioned yet.
