Dreadnought is a sci-fi, multi-player space combat simulator from Yager. Players will take control of a variety of unique ships to combat opposing teams in a strategic environment.

The ships available in Dreadnought are separated into different classes. The Corvette is a speed-based class relying on maneuverability and hit-and-run tactics. The Destroyer is the typical well-rounded ship with medium stats across the board. The Artillery Cruiser is the sniper class with a ship that basically looks like a gigantic gun. Tactical Cruisers provide support, such as the ability to repair other ships. And the Dreadnoughts are the largest ships, relying on their immense firepower and armor in exchange for speed.

The size and speed of ships means that there is more emphasis on strategy and tactics instead of fast-paced arcade action. No matter what game mode is chosen, such as the typical deathmatches, going in with no regard to positioning will not be a recipe for success. Flanking the opposing team, keeping the support ships safe, and prioritizing firepower are all elements that must be taken into consideration to defeat the opposing team. After each match, players will be able to upgrade their ships with attachments and other improvements such as secondary abilities.

After playing this game for 5 hours it a good start just need polishing in features that us player search for in these type of games voice chat in game or setting up a channel on discord would be nice more customization to your ships and captain's and how about add captain skills
Graphics: great
Gameplay: good needs work in some areas
Sound: Good
Customization not enuff
Ships: Are sluggish no way to really dodge or move outta the way besides a short warp
And plus there isn't enough of them
Captain have limited options in faces and hair style
The graphics need work in some areas especially collisions and explosions sound as well

In closing Wot and warthunder aren't really like this game at all sure some of the mechanics are there but we shouldn't compare every game to them

Fun to do. Keeps a level playing field. That way even a noob can land a winning strike. More ships. More team interaction. Be on to an awesome game. Someone needs to do a star wars mod, or a start trek mod. Or a star trek Vs star wars mod!

There is a reason why World of Tanks is great and all other copies like world of warplanes, warships, and Dreadnought are not. There is another steam game that plays identically but doesn't look as good as well. The strategy depth just isn't there. In world of tanks, you have to know your tank and more importantly where to hit the enemy and with what ammo. You have to know ranges, where to shoot, when to shoot, when to move, when to hide, etc. You have to angle your tank for protection, use terrain to protect you weak spots, you have to know the angles that help your armor, how to hide, how to flank. A lot of this is generated by fog of war but mostly because of the combat system. Here you dip up and down and blast whenever in sight. There is no specific type of targeting, like engines, etc. Just no depth where a player can really skill up.

I have been playing the game long enough to unlock each tree fully to tier 3. So far it's basically the same set up as World of Warplanes in capital ships. TDM goes as you would think it will and the real fun is elimination. Teamwork and strategy coupled with a decent ship comp make for challenging fights. Unlike most elimination match's in games you don't sit idle after dying. You get to come back as a jet fighter which does minimal damage against some of the ships but used properly against the opposing forces paper tanks can help quite a bit. I dare say even turn the match around.

The game is a bit slower paced then some moba/FPS games but still very fun.

Cons: IMHO only four things have stood out.

1. A bit better calling system for targets/focus fire/menuvers etc.
2. No side to side drift which you kind of expect to be there on a spacecraft.
3. Unlocking a full tree allows you to convert xp from that ship to free xp which can be used to unlock other craft/modules which is a GREAT BUT...it costs 1 coin to do so. I know they have to make money somehow so not really that bad just annoying.
4. A few other match types and maps would really help break it up a bit. I am sure it will come in the future so not huge either.

I have played this since the closed beta and have to say it's not as good as I imagined. The biggest problem is no way to communicate with your team. As a moba , they should provide you one way or another to communicate and coordinate with the rest of your team, but this game has no build-in voice communication function and their is no way you can notice the texts typed by your teammates because they disappear too fast. Imaging yourself in a game requires lots of teamwork but you can't even talk with your team, that's the Dreadnought.

The game is in Open Beta on PC now, I highly recommend you to try it. Unreal engine 4 looks and feels great, the maps and the ships are real design masterpieces, and the FPS is surprisingly good on my old machine.
After a couple of matches, I was not impressed by slow-paced gameplay but soon I’ve started to realize how deep is it. Every ship class has its unique role. The game requires a teamwork for winning and should not be played like usual deathmatch.
Dreadnought certainly has some balance issues now but technically it is playable and really FUN.

Are all the matches set within planetary conditions, is there any space battles? (Just kinda like the Sci-fi aspect)

I played the Closed Alpha and found the controls too awkward. It was difficult to be effective in combat while trying to maneuver.

A few of my friends and I gave this beta game a try.
Great start to a promising game. A few things of note:
We need more ship types (which are coming) and also better matchmaking which I assume will happen once there are more people playing in open beta and/ or launch.
If you like this type of MOBA then keep your eye on it.

Shallow gameplay, boring machanics, and a toxic community already in Alpha. Honestly don't bother, what you get is a FPS badly combined with ship combat. If your expecting epic capital ship warfare, you won't get it here.
