Spec Ops: The Line developer, Yager Development, and Dreadnought publisher, Grey Box, have announced that they’ll be showing off their capital ship-themed combat flight simulator at next year’s PAX South, which will be taking place at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas.
Along with Grey Goo, a real-time strategy game touted as having roots in classic strategy mechanics, Dreadnought will be playable at booth #1013, where’ll also receive either a blue or red lanyard for attending – blue for Grey Goo, red of Dreadnought.
For those who don’t know, Dreadnought is hoped to feature a wide range of ship classes, each of which have their own advantages and disadvantages depending on their size, speed and firepower. It’s being developed by Yager Development.
It’s touted that you’ll be able to manage and maintain the crew members of the ship that’s under your command, as well as alter the gear, subsystems and such the like of the ship itself. You’ll be donning the role of a mercenary captain who has no allegiance or agenda.
Needless to say, the ships featured in Dreadnought are large – very large, with the game’s namesake also being a flyable vessel of destruction. Because of this, the game is anticipated to offer slow-paced, tactical gameplay rather than the fast-paced dogfighting as seen in similar games.
PAX South itself will last from Friday, January 23rd through to Sunday, January 25th. You’ll be able to play Dreadnought anytime between 7pm and 11pm on the Friday.
The game itself was revealed during this year’s E3, and it’s currently slated to release exclusively on PC (Windows) in early 2015. We’ll bring you more news on Dreadnought should further information reach our ears.
