Get to know the ships of Dreadnought

Spec Ops: The Line (and erstwhile Dead Island 2) developer Yager is making a game about blowing up huge spaceships. What’s not to like?

Dreadnought is a tactical action game from Yager Development, in which players take on the role of captains of various classes of spaceship with the ultimate aim of taking down or defending one of the titular battleships.

To celebrate gamescom 2015, Yager has released a new video introducing the many classes of ship and how they relate to each other. It’s easy to see that teamwork, communication and a good understanding of the battlefield balance will be important for play – as will tactical abilities.

Dreadnought is coming to PC later this year. If you’re keen, sign up for the beta.
