Games Workshop’s Battlefleet Gothic tabletop game is getting a new lease of life as a PC RTS.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada is developed using Unreal Engine 4 by Tindalos Interactive, maker of Etherium.

“Battlefleet Gothic: Armada offers deep management of every ship composing the player’s fleet, both during and between battles,” says the press release.

“From the fastest frigates to the gigantic, miles-long battleships, the player will customize all aspects of his ships: weaponry, defense and support sub-systems, etc. each customization affecting the very performances of the ship and the special abilities available during battle.

“From battle to battle, the admirals and crew of surviving ships will gain experience and promotions, improving the battle-readiness of the ship for future, bigger and more dangerous battles.”
