By my own admission, Dreadnought had kind of escaped my notice. Meaning there’s a “flying under the radar” joke in there. More to the point, though, is the press release confirming that a Dreadnought Steam launch has happened, bringing the internet spaceship battle arena to a wider audience.
The arrival of the game to Steam comes alongside the Command the Colossal update, which offered a number of revamps to the game’s UI and visual look as well as added support for several new languages. The update also brought a combat balance, which was detailed in a dev blog on October 10th.
According to Six Foot COO Christian Svensson, these updates also represent technical improvements that will “ensure new game content and updates for players everywhere at a higher pace than ever before.”
Incidentally, existing players of the game on PC can link their accounts to the Steam version, bringing their achievements along with them.
As one would expect, the Steam release has come along with a gameplay trailer showcasing some of the monstrous floating weapons platforms players can command. That video can be seen below.
Considering the game currently sits at Mixed reviews on Steam, Dreadnought probably has a bit of work to do in order to really impress. That said, there’s also not many games like it out there and it does indeed have its dedicated fans, so time will tell if this “higher pace” of updates will be met. We wish the devs at Six Foot the best of luck.
