Dreadnought is about one thing: team-based, capital ship combat
Videogame for PlayStation 4 and PC, developed by Six Foot and Yager Development and published by Grey Box
Release date: 14 October 2018 (PlayStation 4, PC)
Dreadnought is about one thing: team-based, capital ship combat. It’s a free-to-play shooter that puts you at the center of battles in space and above the surfaces of colonies across the solar system.
But it’s not just you and your guns against the world. You have your teammates—outlaw captains like yourself—and a range of ballistic weaponry, Goliath nuclear torpedoes, and long-range Tesla cannons to fill out your earth-shaking arsenal.
Combat in Dreadnought takes place at a deliberate pace, giving you just enough time to react to an ever-changing battlefield. During each match, you’ll be able to respawn as a different vessel and switch up your strategy—all while the opposing team does the same.
Winning isn’t just about cannons, missiles, and torpedoes. Each vessel is equipped with an energy management system that gives your crew the ability to activate shields, boost engine power, and amplify weapon damage. Using this energy wisely is key to coming out on top.
Every battle gives you Credits and XP, which you can spend to unlock a range of ships, weapons, and modules.
Fly ships from 3 manufacturers – The tough and rugged Jupiter Arms, the solid and bulky Akula Vektor, and the sleek and ethereal Oberon.
