Free-to-Play Dreadnought Now Available in Open Beta on PS4

Recently available in closed beta, free-to-play class-based spaceship action game Dreadnought has entered open beta on PlayStation 4. You can download it for free from the PlayStation Store, along with a console-exclusive Hactar Hero Ship, and two dynamic themes (in North America only).

With the open beta on PS4, you’ll find eight maps (two new to consoles and six bonus night map variations), four game types (Team Deathmatch, Team Elimination, Training, and the co-op Havoc), an in-game friends list, PS4 Pro support for “better graphical fidelity,” new languages (French, German, and Spanish), the ability to spend GP to convert Ship XP into Free XP, the ability to turn GP directly into Credits, and the following market content:

  • The Trident Hero Ship – One of the most famous vessels from the Great Solar War. Check it out!
  • The Knight bundle – Now you can pick up this shining, bravery-inspired emblem and striking, green and yellow coating.
  • GP packs – Purchase GP packs to buy Hero Ships, ship vanity items, captain accessories and more.

Here’s the description for Dreadnought:

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.

On August 15, PlayStation Plus members will be able to download the Ravenswood Plus Pack for Dreadnought ($20 value) for free.
