“Battlefleet Gothic: Armada,” the RTS videogame adaptation by Tindalos Interactive of Games Workshop’s classic tabletop game, uncovered Ork fleet for the first time!
Orks are not your typical space-faring species. Their ships are usually built from scrap, hulks of other ships, and in some rare cases even from asteroids. But what their ships lack in reliability is made up for with sheer firepower and particularly strong prow armor. ‘More Dakka’ is their motto, and charging forward, all cannons blazing and ramming the enemy ships is a totally valid ‘tactic’ in the mind of any Ork captain.
Developed on Unreal Engine 4, “Battlefleet Gothic: Armada” is an RTS in which the player takes command of one of these battle fleets composed of the most powerful spaceships from the Imperial, Chaos, Eldar and Ork forces, in a no-quarter given struggle for the control of the Gothic sector of space. Players will be at the center of every fight, commanding fleets of gigantic ships as Chaos launch a series of surprise attacks on Imperium naval bases – the start of 20 years of warring in the sector.
