Bonus XP Event: November 20th - 27th!



Get ready to rack up extra battle rewards! Beginning the morning of Tuesday November 20th, we will be overclocking XP systems on PC and PS4.

Play in any game mode to earn additional Ship XP and Free XP. Even better, all your Battle Bonus and Elite Status bonuses will benefit from this boost too!

Be sure to stop by the Market and pick up the elusive Predator Retrofit, available free for the duration of the event! Stalk your enemies in style with these unique ship cosmetics for all Jupiter Arms Corvettes.

Everyone who logs in during this time will also be granted a new iteration of the Community Event Decal and the community-created Wisdom Decal shortly after the conclusion of Bonus XP Event.

Here's a summary of what you can expect in the next major updates coming to the game:
  • We are reworking the tiers in Dreadnought. Veteran queue will now only consist of Tiers II and III, while Legendary queue will house Tiers IV and V. Tier IIIs will no longer play against Tier IVs.
  • You will be able to again equip modules from previous tiers on your higher tier ships.
  • Significant balance improvements
  • More features like long-term rewards and a new competitive game mode

There's more on the horizon we will get into at a later date!

Reviews

“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.”
Destructoid

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

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.
