Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 First Pre-Order Beta Out Today!


After the release of the first Battle Overview Trailer last week, we are proud to present our hotly-anticipated follow-up, releasing alongside the start of the first beta open for all players who pre-ordered the game on Steam.

We currently aim at 6pm CET for the release of the Beta.

In this new gameplay video, you’ll learn more about the specific skills and tactics that make up the epic space naval combat of Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2, from battle-turning abilities, to alternate ways to destroy your enemies, and new battlefield complications that make every fight unique.

If you pre-order Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 on Steam, you will also receive access to a week-long beta ending on December 12.

This is the perfect opportunity for you to get an early look at Warhammer 40,000’s spectacular battleships and experience all of the original tabletop’s 12 factions and their playstyles.


The first open Beta will feature the skirmish mode in multiplayer and against AI, as well as the basics of Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2’s epic battles with the campaign prologue. Our second pre-order beta will start in early January, running up to the launch of the game on January 24 - we'll have more details on that are coming soon.

At release, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 will feature three fully-fledged campaigns playable in both solo and co-op that will thrust players into the heart of the 13th Black Crusade as the Imperium, Necrons and Tyranids, alongside 1v1 and 2v2 skirmish and ranked multiplayer.

For a longer look at battles in Armada 2, check out our developer livestream and Q&A broadcast from last week.

Good news!
I have a question - may I upload screenshots and videos from this beta?

Will our progress (MP and Campaign) get deleted at the end of the beta?

Can I play in PVP? Because for some reason it is offline. Right now I'm playing with AIs.

Hi both,

@Bosie I believe so, but I can't currently confirm it.

@Makron Yes, we're currently dealing wit server issues, however, and will let everyone know when they have been resolved.
