Dreadnought is Bringing Space-Based Capital Ship Carnage to PS4 in 2017

It seems like World of Warships in space and I'm okay with that.


Dreadnought by Greybox will be putting you in the captain's chair of massive starships in a team-based combat flight simulator. You'll have to master firing arcs, special abilities, and maneuverability on each very different class of ship if you want to survive the carnage these ships can wreck on each other.

I'm excited about this game, because even though I loved the Freespace, TIE-Fighter, and Independence War series I always wanted to be able to helm a powerful capital ship into battle. I know there was the X series, but ain't no body got time for that.

Dreadnought has been on the radar since 2014, but from the footage shown at PlayStation Experience 2016, it seems like the game might finally be getting a release in 2017. For now you can sign up for the closed beta for Playstation 4 which should begin early next year.

      Looks like this is supposed to come to PC as well. I take it the release date is just for PS4?

        Honestly I'm not sure. They're not really firm on the PS4's release date and I don't think I've seen any PR on whether the PS4 version will release simultaneously with the PC version or if the PC version will come later.

      This got a lot more arcadey between the alpha and beta builds I played. It should be interesting to see how release is.

        I really wish we'd get another one of those. IW1 and IW2 were both absolutely fantastic. A couple of my favorite space combat games after TIE Fighter.
