DREADNOUGHT ADDS ONSLAUGHT GAME MODE, REVAMPS PROGRESSION AND MUCH MORE WITH MASSIVE PLAYSTATION®4 OPEN BETA CONTENT UPDATE
HOUSTON and BERLIN – Oct. 24, 2017 – Grey Box, Six Foot and independent developer YAGER have released the Onslaught update for the open beta of Dreadnought, the class-based spaceship action game, on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. The highlight of this latest major content update is Onslaught, a game mode new to consoles in which players battle both the enemy team’s capital ships and neutral AI-controlled vessels in massive, all-out warfare.
The Onslaught update also overhauls progression, including how players get acquainted with their new ships, starting with Proving Grounds, a new game mode that replaces the old training matches. Players join up with each other and AI-controlled ships to learn the game’s mechanics while earning credits and experience in battle against the AI. Captains can now complete challenges across different ship classes for rewards like XP and credits. And new battle bonuses increase the amount of credits and XP fleets earn after matches, replacing the old ship maintenance system to allow players to use their selected fleets as much as they’d like without cooldowns or other usage penalties.
“We’re constantly listening to our community to make Dreadnought better for longtime captains and newcomers alike on every platform,” said Six Foot producer Chris Owen. “From Onslaught to Proving Grounds and beyond, we’re incorporating that feedback and getting closer and closer to the game we want to launch on PlayStation®4.”
The new update adds a number of other improvements to the game, including enhancements to friends lists, new end-of-match stats, bug fixes and a variety of quality-of-life changes detailed in the full update notes: https://www.greybox.com/dreadnought/en/news/ps4-open-beta-patch-1-improved-captain-training-and-ominous-market-items/
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. 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. There are more than 50 playable vessels to master, each customizable with an array of weapons, modules, coatings and decals.
Dreadnought is currently in free open beta and available for download on the PlayStation®Store and on Windows PC. For the latest updates, visit www.dreadnought.com, and follow the game on Facebook, Twitter and Twitch.
