Watch the Space Marines Trailer

Postby Netheos » 17 June 2016, 13:44

The Space Marines fleet will be available on June 21, and will be playable in the multiplayer modes of Battlefleet Gothic.

The Space Marines faction - as well as the Tau faction currently under development - is free to all Early Adopters of the game. The Early Adopter offer applies to all pre-purchase owners and people who buy the game in a participating retailer during the first two months of the game’s release – until June 21.

Players now only have 4 days left to purchase their Early Adopters Edition of the game and receive for free the Space Marines and the Tau factions. Players who will purchase Battlefleet Gothic: Armada after June 21 will be able to purchase the Space Marines and The Tau as DLCs.



The Space Marines are the greatest of humanity’s warriors, fierce soldiers that have been subjected to intense training, genetic modification, and psycho-conditioning. Their fleets are experts at close-ranged battles, sporting well-armoured ships and specialize in aggressive boarding techniques.

In addition, they have access to two unique faction traits which makes them immune to insubordination mechanics and gives them the ability to prioritize their attacks on different subsystems when boarding.

The Space Marines DLC includes 5 different Space Marine chapters. The past week, we introduced you the Dark Angels and the Space Wolves. This week, we’re unveiling more about the Ultramarines, the Imperial Fists and the Blood Angels.

The Ultramarines pride themselves on their strict adherence to the Codex Astartes, and view themselves as an example for all Space Marines Chapters. To the Ultramarines, the Codex is more than a set of rules, it represents discipline and respect for order. They are among the best warriors of the Imperium.

The Imperial Fists are recognized to be among the most loyal Chapters to the Emperor and have been instrumental in holding the Imperium together during the bleakest of times, with renowned stubborn resilience. They are Siege Warfare specialists, a title exemplified with their role in leading the defence of Earth, which gave them the title of "Defenders of Terra".

The Blood Angels are a Chapter known for their impressive bloodlust, and an occasionnal deadly rage, but also for their keen aesthetic skills and their exceptionnal longevity, even for Space Marines. Their Chapter Master, Dante, is more than a millennia-old, and leads his Chapter wisely and with exceptional efficiency.

Battlefleet Gothic Armada’s Space Marines DLC will be available from June 21 at the price of €6,99, and free for all Early Adopters.

In the IN my favorite favor was the imperal navy favor simply because it made your ships so beautiful, just like the UM here

Also... Ultramarines the chapter that all spacemarines aspire to be like? Ok Matt Ward come on out :P

I want to say this, Sergeant Tarkus was my all time favorite character in the W40K universe the exemplified the purity and nobility of spirit that no person can resist admiring. IF every SM was like him they would be my favorite faction in 40K instead of the IG

Did anyone else notice the imperial fists ship with the shield blocking/absorbing torpedoes? I wonder if that means imperial fists will be a favor, since they are a chapter based around defense and ultramarines will be the default. Would make more sense imo since ultramarines are the template for generic space marines.

but in campaign the "default" chapter was Imp fists

granted access to strong def tool would make sense for the banana fists considering lore and all that but i still think it will be 5 favor options for SM and the defualt SM will be grey/silvery colored ships like IN
