Space Marines Announcement & Screenshots!

The Space Marines DLC will release on June 21!

We're pleased to showcase the upcoming Space Marine fleet with new images, along with the release of our latest update! The Space Marine 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 on Steam. The Early Adopter offer applies to all Steam pre-purchase owners and people who buy the game in a participating retailers during the first two months of the game's release - until June 21.

Players now only have 12 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 warriors 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 make them immune to insubordination mechanics and give them the ability to prioritize their attacks on different subsystems when boarding.

The Space Marines DLC includes 5 different Space Marine chapters including the Ultramarines, the Imperial Fists and the Blood Angels. Today's images show off the Dark Angels and the Space Wolves.

The secretive Dark Angels hold traditions and rituals that date back to the earliest days of the Imperium - they were the first Legion, and one of the most powerful. Every single Dark Angel wishes atonement for a great sin their brothers committed long ago on their homeworld, Caliban. These monastic Space Marines have only a single goal: To eliminate the Fallen Angels, the Dark Angels that have given in to the temptations of Chaos during the Horus Heresy.

Space Wolves are savage. They accept who they are, fierce warriors from the land of Fenris, proud of their anti-authoritarian ways. A mutation in their gene-seed makes Space Wolves who bear the "Curse of the Wulfen" transform into wolf-like mutants.

Stay tuned for more info about the Ultramarines, the Imperial Fists and the Blood Angels!

Unless I'm mistaken, they've already listed all five chapters in this post:

Yes.

As said elsewhere, participating retailers are:
  • Steam
  • The official store on our website.
  • gamesplanet.com

Simple tips to see if you're buying the Early Adopter Edition: if the store page displays the Early Adopter bonuses, it is an Early Adopter Edition. If it doesn't display the bonuses, it's not.
