Overall the game is fucking mad - one of the best 40k games in recent years. The ship models look brilliant, and it's so nice to play a strategy game where unlike RTS units that typically go down in a few shots, you are maneuvering these super massive cruisers against each other, lining up for broadsides, striking with skillshot torpedoes, sending barrages of boarding pods, launching fighters/bombers/assault boats.
Very cool ship customisation too, rich with additional 40k fluff. Can skill up invidual crew from navigators to the on board commisar, captain, master gunner, mechanicum techpriest yadda yadda. Can also customise the skills and abilites from standard extra layers of void shields yadda yadda to active skills like deployable plasma bombs, augers and even micro warps to either evade enemy ships or jump your super heavy ships into other ships paths.
Beta needs a bit of polish but seriously cant wait to get my teeth stuck into the campaign, if it's like the prologue and full of cutscenes etc, hnnngh.
