Spec Ops: The Line dev reveals an altogether different kind of space title.
YAGER has revealed that it will be working with Grey Box to create Dreadnought, an “aerial armada action game” developed using Unreal Engine 4 which will release for PC. You’ll have various battleships to choose from, each with their own weapons, armour, crew, engines and abilities.
YAGER art Director and co-founder at Mathias Wiese stated that, “Dreadnought harkens back to the PC space combat game we developed when we first started out. In the years since, we’ve been developing and testing some incredible ideas that now perfectly come together in Dreadnought. Grey Box has been an amazing partner and we’re incredibly thankful they share our vision for what Dreadnought will become.”
Creative Director at Grey Box Tony Medrano stated that, “We all have that dream of sitting in the Captain’s Chair. It’s an awesome feeling to control something so huge and powerful, and that feeling is present in Dreadnought. Our goal is to nurture that feeling at all costs by working with players to fulfill the creation of their dream armada. With the game announced, that feedback starts now. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
Dreadnought is set to begin public beta testing in early 2015.
