Tindalos Creative, the developer studio behind the sequel of Battlefleet Gothic: Armada has some interesting details about their upcoming game to share with us today. In a video that was uploaded today, Romain Clavier, CEO & Game Director of Tindalos Interactive, and Aurélien Josse, CEO & Art Director talk about Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 and what they’ve been up to all this time creating this massive title.
Creating a space battle title, especially one that is tied with the lore of Warhammer 40000, is no easy task. However, Tindalos Creative has tried to put everything together in such a way that their game is not only a decent title but better than its predecessor in every way. According to Clavier, that means “more factions and more campaigns, but also improvements across the board”. The game takes place during the “Gathering Storm” story arc of Warhammer 40,000, quite possibly the most status quo-upending story arc in the Warhammer 40,000 universe so we expect it to be an overwelming experience for all Warhammer fans.
In Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 you’ll be able to experience actual battles from Warhammer 4000’s universe but they’ll include more ship points so that the fights will be more epic. As for the ships, Tindalos Creative has revealed that they’ve used real Warhammer 40000 miniatures as the main reference for their models.
As we’ve mentioned before, the game will include 12 different factions both from the previous game and the universe of Warhammer 40000 in general and they’ll be playable both in skirmish and multiplayer from day one. All of these factions will be retouched so that the ones that are taken from Battlefleet Gothic: Armada won’t feel the same as they did. We don’t know yet if this means that the game won’t have more factions in future DLC but with such variety, it will take time for fans to start asking for new content.
Both Clavier and Josse are fans of the Warhammer 40000 universe for 25 years so they want their game to stay true to what the franchise stands for and as they say, it has become a part of who they are. For what its worth, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 looks amazing and since it’s made from fans for fans, what could go terribly wrong?
Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is planned for release on PC in 2018, and will be first presented to the press during Focus’s yearly event in Paris, le What’s Next de Focus, on February 7-8.
