New Warhammer 40K RTS announced: 'Battlefleet Gothic: Armada'

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, the tabletop game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, will get a video game adaptation for PC, publisher Focus Home Interactive has announced.

A release date was not provided in the announcement yesterday, though Focus Home promised more information soon. Battlefleet Gothic: Armada will be a real-time strategy game developed on Unreal Engine 4. In it players will control fleets representing one of four factions and battle for control of the Gothic sector of space.

Warhammer 40,000 fans recently were treated to the accidental announcement of a game under the Total War brand, coming in an art book covering that franchise. Games Workshop is the licensor for the Warhammer 40,000 franchise.
