Was pretty excited when I first heard about this, but that's only because I was way off on what I thought it would be.  Seems like it's just a non-steampunk "Guns of Icarus".

Looks interesting, but is everything based in a planetary atmosphere?  I'd rather play a space sim in space, given it's supposed to be a "space" sim.

This game is touching all of my pressure points. That gameplay looks incredible. I am of course cautious as with any unreleased game and will wait for post-release reviews and video content, but man. LOOK AT IT.

what is that giant ship we see in the "intro"? IS that the dreadnaught? It doesn't look that giant in-game...

Watching the video I was like "hmm this looks fun". Then after 2mins I felt like I saw all there was to see and immediatly lost a little interests in the game :(

I'll still try it, probably, could be fun with a couple of friends.

the artillery cruiser, or should we call it the Druuge mauler?

Such a challenge to make sustained energy beam combat visually interesting, especially on this scale and range between combatants. I'm definitely curious about this one, but was expecting it to look a bit less Homeworld. Hopefully there's a lot more conventional ordnance and missiles too.

Also, what's up with the frame rate?

Those explosion effects are fantastic. Can't wait to just light someone up with a broadside volley.

Not enough information...I just hope it won't turn out to be another MMO.

Might as well call it "Battlestations: Not in WWII". And pretty down for such a game.

What makes this a space sim? This looks more like an arcade like death match arena thing.

Seems cool. I definitely get a TF2 kinda vibe from all the classes. So this is like space sim TF2?

It looks interesting but gods the scale don't look all that impressive, the ships just looks like standard fighters  by scale, now maybe if the carrier launched it's fighters then we'd see some actual scale......otherwise it's just same size ships fighting one another.....

also if this is all PVP only then no spanks......there's enough of that crap out there.....

I mean the ships do look cool, they just look like all the same size ships fighting one another....

Looks good. This was a highlight for me when it was first announced.

@Darion350 He certainly did.  To put this into perspective, the Raven from Mechwarrior--the smallest, lightest, least powerful, least armored machine--weighs 35 tons.  Either he pulled a number that "sounded good" right out of his ass or these ships are made of space-age paper mache.

@prats93 You've clearly never invested more than 10 minutes looking at Star Citizen.

@prats93 nothing against this game because it looks pretty fun, but much more limited then Star Citizen. Star Citizen has an almost endless universe to explore, more ships, more upgrades, more missions. Pretty much more in every category of content compared to Dreadnought. Sorry to say it, but you are way off!
