Team-based, capital ship combat perfected. Dreadnought is a free to play, sci-fi warfare game that puts you in command of million-ton capital ships for tactical matches in space and over planetary surfaces. Plasma broadsides, Goliath nuclear torpedoes, and long-range Tesla cannons are all part of a broad arsenal you can employ against your enemies. The game is a free-to-play full game experience with no Pay-to-Win mechanics. In this online multiplayer, action shooter the deliberate combat pace gives you time to think and react to an evolving battlefield. You will take into combat a selection of ships and loadouts which gives you the opportunity to respond to the opposing team’s fleet composition and strategy. When your enemy is within weapons range the sky lights up with an assortment of lasers, missiles, and cannons that you must contend with. Your ship is equipped with an energy management system that gives your crew the ability to activate shields, increase engine speed, or put all power to weapons to increase your damage output. Through cunning ship configuration, effective energy management, ship positioning, and an intimate understanding of your weapon systems, you can lead your team to victory! As you play, you earn credits and experience to unlock over 60 ships and over 150 weapons and modules across five tiers. "Have you tried Dreadnought? Best free game out there.

Dreadnought reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
So I really can't understand all the Negative Reviews. Login issues in the first Few days. Hello at an MMO, I haven't expected anything else for a long Time. Few get that. Ok the Complaints about the Menu is not unfounded. Really great is what else. But I don't play the Game because of the Menus that are just outside of Matches. That being said, I think the Game is quite successful. Just gamble round 1 or 2 quickly. Pay to Win is not yet recognizable. Ok the XP bonuses are already really high but everyone needs to know that for themselves. Balance can certainly be improved, but for starters it is already quite Good. So have some Patience and wait until the Teething problems are gone and just try.

Unfortunately, you can't write a Reasonable Review because anything negative and sufficient Comparisons or reviews are blocked to other Games! Gaming is limited for various Reasons and the Cosmetics Stuff, for the Ships, is pure Rip-off! Is a modern Cat and Mouse PlayEvery Frill you Have to buy individually expensive! In the Beginning, this-Wow effect is, but it settles very quickly and Disillusionment moves in! You can quickly notice the Contrast between game content depth and the Financial aspect. Here, the Financial Is at the forefront. But has nothing to do with Pay to Win! This refers to the Upgrading of the Ships, etc.! Small Addendum: Meanwhile, this Game is Evolving into a Pay to Win-Game!!!! The Ship Supgrates from the Level (Animal Saturation 3 Is simply underground. In order to Fully Explore such a Level 4 Ship, you need about 1 Million EP. To get hold of them with a single Ship, you have to Play the Game for about 3 Years, or invest a pile Of euros. And your Fleet consists of 5 ships. Everyone can imagine where the Journey is going. Those who can do without spiritual Content (Depth or story) and stand by Tacticle-free, selfish, Selfish Team players and overpriced Cosmetics including overpriced DLC, are the right place! How Weak can you be as a Developer! And by the way, you notice how Money Greedy people are behind the Scenes. And Bug there's plenty! There are no Game Crashes, but There are Things in the Game, so you can only grab your head. One is often forced into a Game, which one didn't want, the Score is then-80:30 for the Enemy, how stupid is that! I have developed a Love Of hate for this Game, because otherwise you could not bear this Nonsense! Don't Be dazzled by the beautiful Graphics! I tried to edit my reviev again (23.11.2018)und all comparisons or Cost Reviews were blocked right away! That should give anyone to Think about who has normal Sense! New Addendum: Yes, you can buy new Ships for a lot of Real Money. They are Hero ships! The Majority is just Scrap and is not good, best example: The Hammerhead.Pure waste of money! Unfortunately, the Game is unbalanced by the Zaratan (RammSchiff) and other Ships. 2 Zaratan break an entire Match, so that even the Jutland has no Chance. That Frustrates a lot of Players! And many more it fruit the Players because the clan or Premium Players, each Match win. That smells very much like cheaten, because these Ships are as indestructible as They are, strangely enough!
