There are a bunch of upcoming games set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Many of them look less than stellar, assuming you can even keep up with them all, but a few manage to stand out. One is Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, which we’ve seen and heard little about so far.
As a refresher, this is indeed an adaptation of Games Workshop’s tabletop miniatures game. It’s a PC strategy title with Imperial, Chaos, Elder, and Ork forces vying for control in space. Basically: Warhammer 40K + ship customization + real-time combat means I’m interested.
This clip is a teaser, so little to no action is shown. It starts off with just one ship — a lavish, cathedral-esque ship, mind — and then a few more show up, and then there’s suddenly a whole armada. Shots are fired, but the impact isn’t shown. Fine. I didn’t want to see it, anyway!
