Dreadnought Overview

Dreadnought is a spaceship combat flight simulator where players control large capital ships and take part in strategic battles. All ships have a sense of heft to them which encourages strategic gameplay and positioning rather than the dogfight-style combat better suited for smaller scale fighter planes. Dreadnought is a visually impressive free-to-play title first revealed in 2014 and released in 2018.

Dreadnought Key Features:

  • Tactical Battles – gameplay rewards proper positioning and teamwork between specialized ships.
  • Specialized Capital Ships – command massive vessels with various specializations such as heavy armor, long ranged damage, support, and so on.
  • Customize Your Ships – customize the weapons, ability modules, officer crew, and other aspects of every Dreadnought.
  • Multiple Game Modes – take part in 'one and done' Team Elimination, Deathmatch, or a variety of other game modes based on your gameplay and time preferences.
  • Power Regulation – reroute power to and from various parts of your ship such as shields, weapons, and engines as combat conditions change.
