Today, PlayStation Underground released new gameplay footage of the upcoming PS4 console-exclusive ship combat game Dreadnought. The footage, which reaches nearly twenty minutes in length, features members of the development teams from both YAGER and Six Foot talking over the video.
If you aren’t too familiar with Dreadnought, then that’s quite alright. Here’s a quick description of Dreadnought from the game’s website:
Dreadnought puts you in command of massive capital ships for tactical, team-based warfare in space and across the skies of different planets. As a mercenary captain, your motivations are simple: to reap the rewards of battle and build your reputation—and to be fearless doing it.
Armed with earth-shaking weapons and the support of your teammates, you must claim victory by outmaneuvering, outshooting and outclassing the opposing team. Prepare yourself. It’s time to take the helm.
One of the more stand-out pieces of information that the developers divulge in today’s new video is how one of their biggest inspirations for Dreadnought was the famous class-based multiplayer shooter Team Fortress 2. Each ship in the game has a distinct feel and play style while also featuring a variety of different weapons. Currently, Dreadnought contains over fifty different ships with more still being added. It’s safe to say that you should be able to find one that best fits the way you want to play.
Dreadnought was revealed last year at PlayStation Experience and was playable on the show floor. Today, it is currently in closed beta on PS4. If you’re interested in getting in on the beta action for yourself, then be sure to head over to the Grey Box website to sign up.
