Violent Space Glory of the Darkest Kind

Currently I’m using a combination of Iron while and overt cynicism to keep a lid on my excitement, but its not holding. The news that has me so hyped is this.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada II

The future is looking dark indeed for those living in the Gothic sector of the Imperium. It’s also looking a whole lot more exciting too, if you like death and destruction.

Much of the excitement for the space based RTS Battlefleet Gothic: Armada (BFGA), has cooled down. Basically the game needed a bit more variation, and depth to the missions. But there are few games that do RTS spaceship battle better BFGA, and none that do it with W40K.

With the promise of a sequel everything that was mediocre about BFG has the promise of being improved, and everything that’s fantastic about BFGA (and there’s a lot) has the promise of truly incredible.

But here’s the really exciting part, you can choose from twelve factions including: Necrons and Tyranids.

I knew you’d like that.
