Lunar New Year XP Event

Enjoy Bonus XP, new Market items, and gifts from January 31st until February 11th!

Once every year all of Sinley Bay comes together to celebrate a new lunar cycle, a tradition held since before humanity left its place on Earth to colonize the stars. Captains toast to good luck and fortune in the coming year while collecting some extra experience on the field of battle.

Enjoy Bonus XP - battle rewards have been supercharged! From January 31st until February 11th XP rewards from in-game events and end-of-game bonuses for both Ship XP and Free XP are increased. Even better, all your Battle Bonus and Elite Status bonuses will benefit from this boost too!

As a special bonus, all players who log in on February 4th will be granted 7-Days Elite Status! This reward will be gifted to eligible players later that same week, and does not begin counting down until they next log in to Dreadnought.

Hildisvini Emblem will be FREE in the Market during this event! Navigate to the Featured tab of the in-game Market to acquire it and other discounts! New items celebrating the Lunar New Year and heralding the end of winter have arrived too.

The Lunar New Year Bonus XP Event will take place at the conclusion of maintenance on January 31st for both PC and PS4. Downtime is set to take place from 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM CT.

During this downtime we will also be delivering a hotfix for both platforms: on PC we will be addressing the Corvette’s Armor Amp module, and on PS4 releasing the hotfix to player-reported critical issues delivered to PC on 1/24 (including the Armor Amp balance change).

We are reducing the active duration of Corvette Armor Amp from 15 seconds to 5 seconds at all tiers.

Our team will continue monitoring player feedback and make additional improvements as needed. Look forward to our next game update later in February!

'Legends Redefined' 1/24 Hotfix Notes

  • We have lowered the Battle Bonus recharge cost for Legendary fleets to 11000 credits from 12500 credits. We will continue to monitor matchmaking and reward income across all fleet ranks to determine if additional adjustments are warranted.
  • Reduced Rupture Ram damage from 25,000 to 15,000 at T4 and 35,000 to 20,000 at T5. Made the applied buff on ability activation behave the same as the other rams.
  • Resolved an error where Tartarus Missile was applying Rupture effect. Tartarus Missile now applies: stasis, module disruption, and energy drain debuffs as expected, all gameplay and tooltip information is also displayed correctly.
  • Queuing for 'Any' no longer removes the Quickplay menu option.
  • Resolved an issue where loadout details would not be visible when mousing over ship selection in Orbit or Respawn screens
  • Selecting Customer Support from the Bug Report page now loads the correct contact us webpage
** The team is still investigating the power of Corvette's Armor Amp and gameplay inconsistencies based on player feedback and will be making further updates to address these areas. We believe it best to release what we are able to in a timely fashion and continue to make further improvements as they are available, and will have more info on our next patch for these issues soon. Thank you everyone for your continued feedback, passion, and support!

“I have yet to find another free-to-play game that is so fair to the player not spending any money on it.”
CG Magazine

“These ships are massive blocks of weapons, armor, and engines, and behave accordingly, requiring players to think a few moves ahead whenever making decisions in combat.”

“Dreadnought in many ways successfully brings the World of Tanks formula to outer space with sci-fi flair”

About This Game

Dreadnought is about one thing: team-based, capital ship combat. It’s a free-to-play shooter that puts you at the center of battles in space and above the surfaces of colonies across the solar system.

But it’s not just you and your guns against the world. You have your teammates—outlaw captains like yourself—and a range of ballistic weaponry, Goliath nuclear torpedoes, and long-range Tesla cannons to fill out your earth-shaking arsenal.

Combat in Dreadnought takes place at a deliberate pace, giving you just enough time to react to an ever-changing battlefield. During each match, you’ll be able to respawn as a different vessel and switch up your strategy—all while the opposing team does the same.

Winning isn’t just about cannons, missiles, and torpedoes. Each vessel is equipped with an energy management system that gives your crew the ability to activate shields, boost engine power, and amplify weapon damage. Using this energy wisely is key to coming out on top.

Every battle gives you Credits and XP, which you can spend to unlock a range of ships, weapons, and modules.

Fly ships from 3 manufacturers – The tough and rugged Jupiter Arms, the solid and bulky Akula Vektor, and the sleek and ethereal Oberon.
