Grey Box, Six Foot and independent developer YAGER have revealed that Dreadnought, the class-based spaceship action game, will warp into closed beta on April 29 on Windows PC systems. Players interested in commanding their very own capital ships can still sign up for a chance to join closed beta atwww.playdreadnought.com.
But wait, there’s more! Players can get guranteed access to Dreadnought’s closed beta with one of two new Founder’s Packs, available today at www.playdreadnought.com/shop. Both bundles guarantee access to Dreadnought’s closed beta, as well as several other special bonuses, including distinctive vessel variants, in-game currency and other progression-related perks.
Beyond guaranteed access to closed beta, the $9.99 Hunter Pack delivers one uniquely designed and preconfigured Medium Dreadnought Hero Ship – the Morningstar – as well as 500 Grey Box Points (GP), which can be used to buy ship emblems, decals and much more. It also provides seven days of Elite Status, granting more experience and Fleet Points (FP) per match, when the game launches later this year. Finally, the package includes an exclusive Hunter Pack ship decal, emblem and coating, plus two Fleet Recruitment Packs, which let owners give two friends guaranteed access to closed beta, the Morningstar Hero Ship, 250 GP and a Fleet Recruitment Pack ship decal and emblem.
The Mercenary Pack ups the ante with five Hero Ships – the aforementioned Morningstar (Medium Dreadnought), Outis (Medium Corvette), Silesia (Light Artillery Cruiser), Huscarl (Heavy Destroyer) and Kali (Heavy Tactical Cruiser) – as well as 3,000 GP and 30 days of Elite Status at official game launch. It also grants four Fleet Recruitment Packs and an exclusive Mercenary Pack ship decal, emblem and coating, all for $39.99.
Set in a futuristic era of all-out galactic warfare, Dreadnought turns strategic, team-based warfare into one heart-pounding, grippingly gorgeous action experience. Each of the game’s varied vessels is designed to fill a unique, class-based role – from front-line assault and scouting to long-range damage and tactical support – and can be customized with specialized weapons, abilities, cosmetic enhancements and more. Dreadnought will launch as a free-to-play title on PC with competitive online multiplayer modes.
Dreadnought is powered by Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4 (UE4) technology and is expected to officially release on PC in 2016.
