Following the well-received Campaign Trailer from last week, Focus Home Interactive and Tindalos Interactive presented the full campaign experience of Battlefleet Gothic: Armada II this week in an hour-long Livestream.

This taste of single-player gameplay is also available in the ongoing Pre-Order Beta 2, running until release day and that has already welcome thousands of players. 

Tindalos Game Director Romain Clavier joins Focus Ben Barrett to break down the massive grand strategy campaign that combines fleet management, system defense, ship building, and humongous invasions from titanic battlecruisers into one fantastic experience. Easy to parse but with nigh-infinite options, each of the three campaigns offers dozens of hours of gameplay, scripted missions, and cutscenes, with intricately written lore for every ship, system, planet, and more.
