The Tau join Battlefleet Gothic: Armada tomorrow via an opt-in beta

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada

The battle-suit-wearing, blue-skinned Tau will be a DLC race for Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, Focus Home / Tindalos’ interpretation of Warhammer 40,000’s big ol’ space strategy sim. They’re going to be fully free to anyone who bought the game at pre-order or in the first two months of release – before June 21. However, you’ll be able to help test them out no matter when you bought it when the beta goes live tomorrow.

Try these fantastic strategy games if you’re after more.

It’s a fairly standard Steam beta, so head to the properties for the game in Steam, go to the Betas tab and select the Tau build. It should auto-download an update, and check the DLC section to make sure it installed properly.

The race is focused wholly around long-range damage. Fragile as they are as individuals, boarding parties are going to tear them apart so all their highly-advanced technology is focused on destroying enemy ships before they get in range.
