Battlefleet Gothic: Armada today unleashes its Space Marines DLC
Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, the RTS videogame adaptation of Games Workshop’s classic tabletop game by Tindalos Interactive today unleashes a new faction: the Space Marines. The Space Marines are playable in the multiplayer modes of Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, as well as in Skirmish mode against the AI.
The Space Marines are experts at close-ranged battles, sporting well-armoured ships and specialize in aggressive boarding techniques. In addition, they have access to two unique faction traits which makes them immune to insubordination mechanics and gives them the ability to prioritize their attacks on different subsystems when boarding.
The Space Marines DLC includes 5 different Space Marine chapters: the Ultramarines, the Dark Angels, the Space Wolves, the Imperial Fists and the Blood Angels. For more information about these 5 chapters, click here!
The owners of the Early Adopters Edition of Battlefleet Gothic will receive the Space Marines for free today – the DLC will be automatically downloaded. Early Adopters will also receive the Tau Empire faction for free as soon as it’s available. The Early Adopter offer applied to all pre-purchase owners and people who bought the game during the first two months of the game’s release – until June 21. Players who will purchase Battlefleet Gothic: Armada from now on, will be able to purchase the Space Marines as a regular DLC.
