- Developer: Tindalos Interactive

- Platforms: PC
- Premiere: 24 January
Armada 2 is a continuation of a well-received strategy game set in the Warhammer 40K universe, being a computer adaptation of the miniature tabletop game called Battlefleet Gothic. This is an RTS resembling the Homeworld series and slightly forgotten Hegemonia: Legions of Iron. This means that the entire war effort is set in space. Players command their ships, which as befits such setting often resemble a mixture of a flying sarcophagus with a gothic cathedral.
The game is not very fast-paced, however it requires players to come up with the right strategy and puts a lot of stress under maintaining proper unit formation (i.a. because their armor is not dispersed sometimes, flanking an enemy might be much more effective than mounting a frontal attack. Units have diverse skills and specialties. Moreover, they are capable of earning experience, thus players should pay attention not to lose them in battle.
Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 features also an epic campaign with the story based on events from the WH40K universe known as the 13th Black Crusade and Gathering Storm Abaddons attack on the Empire. The game is not innovative, however, the fans of this world should be satisfied.
