The first entry in a new gameplay overview series for Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 came out today from Tindalos Interactive and Focus Home Interactive. This first entry shows off how the teams are working towards making a "bigger, better experience for admirals everywhere."

The sequel promises to deliver "an even greater adaptation of the original board game" that is set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Today's video is the first of two videos that will show off many of the various options at your disposal in Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2.

The trailers shows you how everything comes together to create a unique blend of space combat . Players can target individual components on enemy ships, take out crews while boarding, or even just ram the hell out of the other ships with your own. Because why the hell not, right?

A beta begins on December 5 and runs until December 12 for pre-orders. Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 releases on January 24, 2019 on the PC. Pre-orders will get a 10% discount. If you own the first Armada title, you get 25% off.
With more factions and more ships come bigger battles, with larger fleets clashing to control the Eye of Terror and the surrounding region of space dubbed the Aegis Ocularis. All twelve factions from the tabletop game are now represented, and each has unique ships, new mechanics, and much more to show off.

Be it unique ways of moving through space or weird, alien weaponry and ships, each faction feels distinct from its peers. Even those that share similarities such as the Aeldari Corsairs and Asuryani Craftworlds or the Tau Protectorate Fleet and Merchant Fleet have differences in what they can field. This lets your faction selection, and choice of ships, armaments, admiral skills, and fleet upgrades allow for total customization and massive impact.
