Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 released earlier this year — 0065019.M03. It was definitely something I had enjoyed at the time as you can see in our official review. Boasting a prologue and three grand campaigns featuring the Imperium, Necrons, and Tyranids, it had a lot of things that Warhammer 40,000 fans could want. Now, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2’s content is bolstered further with the new Chaos campaign expansion. Check out the trailer below:
Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 – The Chaos Campaign
The Chaos campaign expansion puts you in the role of a Chaos Lord named Malos Vrykan. Coinciding with Abaddon the Despoiler’s 13th Black Crusade and the Fall of Cadia, Vrykan commands his hellish and heretical fleets to burn the galaxy.
The Chaos expansion will provide new quirks for those familiar with the three grand campaigns in the game. Vrykan’s forces will have the capability to offer planets to any of the four Chaos gods — Khorne, Tzeentch, Slaanesh, and Nurgle.
This ritual will provide you with points to those respective deities and, in turn, you’ll be given boons you can use strategically. For instance, Khorne’s influence will drive anyone insane with rage. As such, you can force any fleet to attack an adjacent system held by another faction, weakening both in the process. As you progress through the Chaos campaign, you’ll also be able to obtain new admirals from various Chaos Space Marine chapters, including the Marked Legions (World Eaters, Thousand Sons, Emperor’s Children, and Death Guard) who’ll have unique skills.
Although Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2’s Chaos campaign is a paid expansion, a major update also drops free for everyone. The update adds more secondary objectives for the original three grand campaigns. Likewise, you’ll be able to tweak your campaign settings accordingly to customize your experience.
Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2’s Chaos campaign expansion can be purchased for $12.99. You can find it via Steam. We’ll let you know more about certain impressions of this new expansion in the coming days as we bring death to the false emperor.
