Grey Box, Six Foot, and YAGER announced today that the class-based spaceship action game Dreadnought will have a free-to-play open beta on PlayStation 4 starting today. The beta will include some new features to the game as well as some extra goodies for PlayStation users.
Dreadnought puts players in the captain’s chair of massive capital ships and on the front lines of tactical, team-based battles across a variety of competitive, 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 vital 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.
In addition to the content found in the previous closed beta of Dreadnought, the open beta introduces two game maps new to consoles and six bonus night map variations. It includes four game types: Team Deathmatch, Team Elimination, Training, and Havoc modes. Havoc is a cooperative mode exclusive to PlayStation 4 in which three players attempt to survive as long as possible against progressively tougher waves of enemies using ships they select and upgrade over the course of each match.
In addition to the open beta, the console-exclusive Hactar Hero Ship, a new ShareFactor5y theme, and two dynamic themes are available for free through the PlayStation Store. Check out the gallery above, and stay tuned for more news here on Gaming Trend.
