Battlefleet Gothic: Armada is a real-time strategy game based on the tabletop war game in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. The game features a single-player campaign and 1v1 or 2v2 multiplayer modes. Unlike most strategy games, Armada does not feature base-building and instead borrows the point-based system from the tabletop game. Each match has a point allotment and each ship has a point value. Players can choose to take whichever ships they desire as long as they do not exceed the point allotment.
