HOUSTON and BERLIN – April 26th, 2016


– Get guaranteed access to the upcoming closed beta and more with new Founder’s Packs, available now –

In a flurry of sci-fi superlatives, Grey Box, Six Foot and independent developer YAGER today announced that 5v5 space action game Dreadnought is preparing to welcome trigger-happy space pilots into its closed beta on April 29th.

Set in a futuristic era of all-out galactic warfare, Dreadnought turns strategic, team-based combat 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, modules, cosmetic enhancements and more. Dreadnought will launch as a free-to-play title on PC with competitive online multiplayer modes.

Both bundles guarantee access to Dreadnought’s upcoming closed beta and several other bonuses, including special vessel variants, in-game currency and progression-related perks.

In addition to guaranteed access to the closed beta, the 9.99 € Hunter Pack delivers one unique Medium Dreadnought Hero Ship – the Morningstar – plus 500 Grey Box Points (GP), which can be used to buy ship emblems, decals and more. It also includes 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 the 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) – plus 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 €.

Dreadnought is powered by Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4 (UE4) technology and is expected to officially release on PC in 2016.
