Battlefleet Gothic: Armada Has Eldar Fleets Incoming

The Battlefleet Gothic: Armada official release date is on Thursday 21st April, in just two weeks. So far Tindalos have been drip feeding content to pre-release players. First just the Imperial and Chaos forces. Then last week they added the Ork ships. And now finally Tindalos are going to bring Eldar next week.

Eldar are the snobs of outer space. Where the Imperium look down on all alien races and claim to be the inheritors of the galaxy by divine decree, the Eldar don’t need to be told they are better or ask some deity for blessings to make them worthy. The Eldar simply know they are better.

Occasionally, when the Eldar are through with trickery and manipulation (lesser races are so easy to predict), they will use the battlefield to play with their prey, and through tactics, deception, and superior technology they will test the strength and composure of any enemy.

Eldar ships are far from easy to keep safe, with little armour and no shields you need to pick your battles carefully, but used correctly they can devastate any foe.

Official Press Release

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada – Eldar fleet strikes fast in video before joining the beta next week

Fitted with the finest technology in the universe, Eldar ships are fast and highly manoeuvrable. They pack serious firepower, with incredible damage projection and application. Their strategy is based around hit-and-run assaults, taking their targets by surprise while inflicting maximum damage. Their speed allows them to disappear as fast as they arrived, as shown in today’s Eldar trailer. Eldar ships are as fast as they are fragile – they lack in any heavy armour. With the exception of their battleships, their craft are not fitted with shields, instead relying on advanced Holo-fields in conjunction with their speed and agility to avoid incoming fire. This makes them extremely hard to track and hit with conventional weaponry. Destroying Eldar ships’ engines is the best way to keep them at close-range, ensuring you have enough time to inflict lethal damage.

The Eldar fleet will be joining the beta next week! They will be ready to pit their guerilla tactics against the Ork’s brutal manoeuvres, the Chaos’ long-range gameplay and the Imperium’s balanced style, during epic and tactical space battles. Eldar fleets are built around strategies based on speed, surprise and sudden firepower, offering a brand new gameplay style and deep tactical options for Battlefleet Gothic players.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada releases two weeks from now – and thanks to the tantalizing fun offered by the Beta, almost 100,000 players have already preordered the game. The current beta players, along with all who join them, will be able to help Tindalos balance the Eldar fleets as soon as next week, just like they have the other three factions. This will ensure the best possible experience when the game releases on April 21.

At first I was cautiously optimistic, then apathetic, and then I saw TotalBiscuit showcasing the game, and I must say I'm downright excited for it now.
