The species of Warhammer 40.000 clash in Battlefleet Gothic: Armada to take control over the Gothic section of space -as the fans already knew. For those who don’t know: Enormous warships and explosions are waiting for us in Focus Home Interactive‘s new game and this new trailer shows us the sublime beauty of Chaos fleet under the leadership of Abaddon:
Here are some details about it from the YouTube video:
The Chaos Warfleet, led by Abaddon and his admiral ship the Planet Killer, emerges from the Eye of Terror! After revealing the Imperium ships and gameplay in a previous video, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, the new space RTS set in the Warhammer 40k universe from Games Workshop, now showcases the Chaos fleet and its ships in a new gameplay video!
Over the millennia, many ships and their crew have betrayed the Imperium to join the Traitor Legions. As such, a big part of the Chaos Warfleet is composed of ancient ship designs that have long since been decommissioned from service in the Imperial Navy.
But make no mistake, this does not make them less fearsome. While not as heavily armoured, Chaos ships are faster than their Imperium counterparts, and out-range them with extensive use of weaponry such as Lances and attack crafts. These traits work well in synergy with the Stasis Bomb: teleported from your ship, the bomb traps enemy ships and their ordnance, while allowing your own lances to rain destruction on them. Astute Chaos admirals will be able to inflict considerable damage to the enemy fleet before they may even return fire.
Chaos ships, and their crew, may also receive the favours of the four Gods of Chaos. Khorne, Slaanesh, Tzeentch and Nurgle will reward your prowess in battle with Chaos Marks, each giving different bonuses and abilities to your ship, while warping their hull, dramatically affecting their appereance.
Battlefleet Gothic: Armada will be out in early 2016, and we can’t wait to heed the Chaos’ call.
“I am the Arch-fiend, the Despoiler of Worlds, and by my hands shall the false Emperor fall.” – Abaddon
