There are no breaking news at the moment

One of the games I’m really looking forward is Battlefleet Gothic: Leviathan, the turn-based strategy game based on the tabletop miniatures game, Battlefleet Gothic. While we still don’t know when the game will be coming out – it’s currently in closed beta – the new gameplay trailer offers another glimpse at this Warhammer 40,000 game and all its space glory. You can see the customization screens that show off the various spaceships in all their detail, and the battle screen with the weapon arcs and other similar details. I really like the dice-falling-from-the-sky touch that shows how you can cleverly incorporate what is an essential part of the tabletop game into a digital game and make it feel like it belongs on screen.

The trailer also shows the campaign progress map and the mission screens that describe the various objectives. The campaign is based on the Shield of Baal campaign, and you can play though that conflict as Imperial Navy, Blood Angels Space Marines, or Tyranid Hive fleets (with more races planned). The game is hopefully not too far off now, and I hope it ends up being as good as it looks.
