Battle Fleet 2 In Development

Hi everyone,

I'm the developer of Battle Fleet, a WW2 naval strategy game for iPad/Mac. Just wanted to let you guys know that I'm working on the sequel and plan to release it this summer for iOS, Android, Mac & PC platforms.



Battle Fleet 2 Features:
* Build your fleet from 5 different ship classes each with different hardpoint locations for mounting different weapons, different mobility, and different hit locations.
* Use small caliber guns to pinpoint your shot and switch to devastating salvo mode, forcing all available guns in range and firing arc to fire at the same location.
* Equip your ships with a wide variety of weapons including AA guns, torpedoes, and a plethora of different caliber naval artillery.
* Utilize or neutralize a variety of aircraft, including recon planes, fighters, and bombers, launched from island bases, aircraft carriers, or cruisers.
* Assign captains to each ship with special skills and abilities, like additional command cards or better mobility.
* Play the strategic USA Campaign mode, random skirmish mode, full cross platform multiplayer, or even hotseat multiplayer.
* Use recon to clear Fog of War and defeat enemy ground based airfields and coastal artillery.
* Deploy Strategic Command Cards to surprise your enemies with special actions like deploying mines, sabotage, enhanced aiming, airstrikes and more!
* Battle Fleet 2 features full 3D models of US and Japanese WW2 era ships.



You can find out more on our Steam concept page or subscribe to get emailed updates about the game's development.

Let me know what you think and if you have any questions about the game

No, the game will not be freemium. It will probably be around $4.99 maybe with a launch sale.

Woah, this looks fantastic!

Never heard of the first one, but from what I've now seen/read, I'll keep my eye on this. Seems like an awesome strategy title.

Best of luck with the development
