Grey Box’s Dreadnought Open Beta Gets Onslaught Update on PS4
Grey Box, Six Foot and indie developer Yager have released the Onslaught update for the open beta of Dreadnought, the class-based spaceship action game, on the PlayStation 4. The highlight of this latest major content update is Onslaught, a game mode new to consoles in which players battle both the enemy team’s capital ships and neutral AI-controlled vessels in all-out warfare.
The Onslaught update also overhauls progression, including how players get acquainted with their new ships, starting with Proving Grounds, a new game mode that replaces the old training matches. Players join up with each other and AI-controlled ships to learn the game’s mechanics while earning credits and experience in battle against the AI. Captains can now complete challenges across different ship classes for rewards like XP and credits. And new battle bonuses increase the amount of credits and XP fleets earn after matches, replacing the old ship maintenance system to allow players to use their selected fleets as much as they’d like without cooldowns or other usage penalties.
The new update adds a number of other improvements to the game, including enhancements to friends lists, new end-of-match stats, bug fixes and a variety of quality-of-life changes. Dreadnought is currently in free open beta and available for download on the PlayStation Store and on PC.
