Dreadnought's latest update brought a new map, two new ships and the German language. Some improvements in the game's combat reward system have also been added. Dreadnought is currently in free open beta on Windows PC and PlayStation 4.
Grey Box, Six Foot and independent developer Yager have released the 1.9.0 update for the Windows PC open beta of Dreadnought. The latest update brought Amirani, a new map named for the supervolcano on Jupiter’s moon Io. In keeping with the lava-theme, Amirani (the map) plays host to various displays of molten rock and ash, casting a scorching veil over the research colony of Jacawitz.
The 1.9.0 update also adds two new hero ships to the game: the Tunmen, a heavy artillery cruiser, and the Hanuman, a light dreadnought. The dev team has also taken some steps in improving Dreadnought’s combat reward system, in-game tutorial and online matchmaking process based on player feedback. Moreover, Dreadnought now features full German language audio and text support, with additional languages on the way.
According to the "about" section of the game, Dreadnought "puts players in the captain’s chair of massive capital ships on the front lines of competitive team-based battles across a variety of multiplayer game modes. There are more than 50 playable vessels to master, each customizable with an array of weapons, modules, coatings and decals. Five distinct ship classes, specializing in tactical roles like frontline assault, long-range bombardment, strategic support and more, offer captains unique powers to exploit the enemy team’s weaknesses and claim victory."
Dreadnought is currently in free open beta on Windows PC and PlayStation 4.
