After the success of Battlefleet Gothic: Armada the developers were left with a rather tricky question: which of the numerous factions to include in the sequel? Well, it would appear that the answer is "all of them" as Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is set to bring all 12 playable factions from the tabletop, as well as three distinct, narrative-driven campaigns!

If you're wondering what exactly these factions are, as well as what sort of ridiculous ships they like to do all of their fighting in, wonder no more as Focus Home Interactive have now posted a decently lengthy faction trailer. Have a look:

As expected given its predecessor, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2's ship design is downright gorgeous across the board. The one thing that does slightly worry me, however, is how exactly are all of these vastly different ships going to be balanced. The original only had four factions at launch and the developers still had a rough time getting them all balanced, so what's going to happen now that the number has been tripled? 

I suppose we'll find the answer to that question soon enough as Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 will be fully released in January of 2019. You can learn more about it, as well as follow any developer updates, by visiting either Steam or the official website.
