Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, Focus Home Interactive’s digital adaptation of the Games Workshop tabletop game, is going to be in beta for a little while longer. Originally expected to launch in March, fans can now look forward to it in April.

We previously covered the Chaos fleet, which is designed to attack from long range and keep distance from enemies. The Ork fleet is the opposite, moving to close the gap and rip enemies apart. They will be entering the beta, which is available to those who pre-order on Steam, in the coming days.

Tindalos Interactive's take on the Warhammer 40,000 universe is an RTS, but one that feels more deliberate than some of its ilk. You’ll need to manage systems, position your fleet, and constantly maneuver. This sets it apart from titles like StarCraft II, which put a heavier emphasis on speed and resource gathering.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada will be out on April 21 for PC.
