At launch, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 will include all 12 factions from the original tabletop game and its expansion Armada. They are:
We should get some more details come February; for now, it's just the trailer and some basic tidbits.
I wonder if they'll be changing up the "favor" system.
Hmmm, so the single-player campaign seems based on the 8th Edition version of the 13th Black Crusade. Where Abaddon is no longer "Failbaddon" and destroys Cadia by dropping a Blackstone Fortress on it. Eep... On the bright side, Indomitus Crusade incoming?
Also, Necrons (a.k.a.: "Space Tomb Kings with Croissant Ships") and fricking Tyranid Hive Fleets?
If Tyranids no longer have fear of Necron Tomb Worlds or fleets... Oh, Crap! Might want to revise Warhammer 40K's Nightmare Fuel page...
(*realizes I've yet to play the first game*)
I hope by the time this is released, the first game (and DLC) can be bought at a discount on Steam.

I've got the same problem going on. I keep seeing Battlefleet Gothic go on sale for steep discounts, but I've never truly felt the need to add it to my collection. Might have to do with how the game didn't have much in the way of singleplayer content, something this game is seeking to correct.

I've picked it up, but I don't like failing missions so i keep failing the first supply run mission and starting over xD Stupid orcs, how do i beat that mission >.>
I seem to remember that I beat it really narrowly, by a fluke, but that the missions got considerably more reasonable after it.
Well this is a big surprise and it's based on the Gathering Storm Trilogy.
I wonder if Admiral Spire will return unless he be too old by the time of the 13th Black Crusade.
Well, Warhammer has allowed certain characters to survive via gene therapy and all sorts of bio-modification. Or failing that, hooking him up to some clunky life-support machine. Or if the writers REALLY want to be dicks, place him in one of those Futurama-style fluid jars, where all he can do is just bark orders at you and nothing else.
Warp shenanigans, too.
The 12 and 13th Black Crusades are 839 years apart. Even with gene therapy and augmentation, for a non Astartes, Non-Techpriest human, that'd be a very impressive life span. Warp Shennanigans could be possible, but I doubt we'll see the admiral again.

Spire would be a nice bit of continuity between games, but it's going to be very difficult to fit him in anyway, given his association with the aforementioned Gothic fleet, which in both versions of the 13th Black Crusade (original Eye of Terror campaign and The Gathering Storm) didn't directly participate in the defense of Cadia.
So we might get an entirely new officer to follow around, though I suspect that we'd be stuck with either Cawl's Explorator fleet for a good chunk of the way to Cadia, and maybe Garadon on the Phalanx for a good deal after.
This video doesn't exactly show anything new - in fact, it seems to be re-using footage from the initial teaser trailer, except this time from the perspective of the Necrons.
And unfortunately the game has been delayed until next year January 2019.
We're getting close to the release, and thus the developers are upping the PR.
Saw some of the prologue cutscenes. Trazyn the Infinite is every bit the perfect memetic troll everyone would hope for him to be
So Spire has been confirmed to be back for BFGA 2 which they explain his ship traveled through warpspace after the 12th Black Crusade but was brought to the future during the 13th Black Crusade.
And what makes it better is that due to Warp fuckery thatís not even implausible!
While the lack of true 3D dimensional space sucks, this is starting to look like the first game in a LOOONG time to give Homeworld a run for it's money. Really hoping the release goes smoothly and doesn't have any stupid bugs, or the campaign turns out to be shallow.
I'm torn. I really like the look (And I wish we'd had a Homeworld that embraced the grand strategy element. I'm all for space opera, but I'd have loved a Stellaris-like approve mingled with the Homeworld themes.)
I'm also wondering whether I should get the original and then this; but I've heard BFG has bugs galore and optimisation issues... so should I just jump in here?
Not sure, never bought the original myself. And while I personally haven't heard much about it being buggy, I think the bigger issue will be the server population. The game's already been out for awhile, might not be much of a community left.
I need to get back to playing the original. I keep quitting it and starting over because I hate failure and so keep restarting the game after that first supply mission with the Orks.
I just save-scummed the mission itself.
In my experience with Homeworld and this game, I don't feel like the game being in true 3D would really add that much to it.
Don't remember any bugs myself, didn't play *that* much of it though.
Well this game's gonna have plenty of bugs.
Also severe issues with HERESY. It tries to shoot itself, due to having AI!
NO TO THE IRON MEN.
