Focus Home Interactive and Tindalos Interactive have released a new faction specific trailer for their upcoming game Battlefleet Gothic: Armada. The game is an RTS adaptation of Games Workshops famous tabletop game. Battlefleet Gothic: Armada pits four distinct factions using miles-long ships against each other for control of the Gothic sector of space.
The above trailer focuses on The Imperium fleet, one of the four available factions. Their ships are apparently not the fastest nor the most powerful in the game, but they seem to be incredibly durable. The trailer goes on to explain some of the details about the Imperium’s fleet. The faction seems to be defined by dense void shields and meters thick armor. This allows these ships to adapt to any kind of battle situation. Their torpedo strikes and devastating Nova cannon blasts are enough to destroy most opponents. Any that do survive can be finished by the powerful broadside armaments. All this while the Imperium ships’ armor and shields help ensure they survive the encounter.
Your main weapons should you choose this faction would be your barrages of torpedo strikes, some ships are also equipped with the devastating nova cannon. Should these fail you, your powerful broadside Macro-cannons and Lance batteries will make short work of what’s left of the enemy. As a last-resort, the ships are well-armored that ramming your prow into the hull of an enemy ship can be a surprisingly effective tactic.
