Focus Home Interactive and Tindalos Interactive announce the development of Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, a real time strategy adaptation of Games Workshop's famous tabletop game for the PC. Here are a few screenshots and a press release.
The game stages the mighty armada of the Imperial Navy's Battlefleet Gothic against the insidious and galaxy threatening Chaos Black Crusade of Abaddon the Despoiler in dark, deadly and intense space battles.
Developed on Unreal Engine 4, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada is anRTS in which the player takes command of one of these battlefleets composed of the most powerful spaceships from the Imperial, Chaos, Eldar and Ork forces, in a no-quarter given struggle for the control of the Gothic sector of space.
Battlefleet Gothic: Armada offers deep management of every ship composing the player's fleet, both during and between battles. From the fastest frigates to the gigantic, miles-long battleships, the player will customize all aspects of his ships: weaponry, defense and support sub-systems, etc. each customization affecting the very performances of the ship and the special abilities available during battle. From battle to battle, the admirals and crew of surviving ships will gain experience and promotions, improving the battle-readiness of the ship for future, bigger and more dangerous battles.

I'm already not playing Battlefield because I'm not crazy with what DICE is doing with it. They've got a lot of work to do. (12 Hours ago)
EA is far from out of the woods, but I don't think this is the steep downhill incline you imagine for the industry. I'm not buying the doom and gloom. (12 Hours ago)
If they can develop revenue streams that don't negatively impact the user experience.. most will try. (12 Hours ago)
And while publishers may want to pursue service models, there are relatively good ways of handling that. Add to this the fact that most developers don't really want to ruin their games. (12 Hours ago)
EA is already dropping the ball all over the place. But people are reacting to it, more than ever. (12 Hours ago)
