Dreadnought Video: FIRE EVERYTHING!
An all-new video for Dreadnought has surfaced, complete with gameplay commentary from Game Director Peter Holzapfel and Game Designer Elno Joas.
How many of you have ever wished that you were a part of a huge, futuristic armada? Us, too. While we may never experience what it's like to live life in an armada like in 'Battlestar Galactica', the next best thing we can do is play Yager's Dreadnought, the upcoming aerial armada game coming in 2015 for PC. In this video, we're given some gameplay commentary from Hozlapfel and Joas as they show us an example of a game in which they control the Archon Dreadnought.
As you can see, the Dreadnought-class ships are immense vessels with firepower that would put SS4 Goku to shame. The mode they're showing off is Team Deathmatch, in which they zip around with the lighter Archon and show how you can micromanage all of its defensive and offensive abilities. You can fire broadside guns to unload your firepower on another ship, divert attention to the small guns to take out jets and even have your crew repair your ship to fighting form after its been damaged.
If your large Dreadnought gets destroyed, you'll take control of one of the other ships in the armada while it gets repaired and made ready for battle again. We only hope that iconic ships will be made available as downloadable content, such as the Arcadia from 'Captain Harlock' fame or maybe even the Raptors from 'Battlestar Galactica'. It'll never happen, but we can dream
Check out the gameplay video and await Dreadnought's release on PC in 2015.
