Grey Box, Six Foot and independent developer YAGER have released the all-new Havoc mode for the console-exclusive closed beta of Dreadnought, the class-based spaceship action game, on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system.
Available only on the PlayStation 4, Havoc is a cooperative mode in which three players attempt to survive as long as possible against progressively tougher waves of enemies from the Scavs, a new AI faction with their own unique ships. Rather than bringing their own premade fleet loadouts into battle, players will select ships at the beginning of each match and upgrade them over time. Havoc is playable on two new maps: Xanthe and Hekate.
Players can register for Dreadnought’s closed beta on the PlayStation 4 at https://www.greybox.com/dreadnought/en/ps4/. Instant access to the closed beta can also be obtained with the purchase of one of the new Dreadnought Founder’s Packs, available today via the PlayStation Store:

Five distinct ship classes, specializing in vital roles like frontline assault, long-range bombardment, strategic support and more, offer fleets unique powers to exploit the enemy’s weaknesses and claim victory. There are more than 50 playable vessels to master, each customizable with an array of weapons, modules, coatings and decals.
Dreadnought is being created for the PlayStation®4 by lead-developer YAGER and co-developer Iron Galaxy Studios in partnership with Six Foot and Grey Box.
