If piloting giant spaceships into multiplayer battles with gorgeous visuals is your thing, Dreadnought officially launched on Steam for Windows PC on Monday. 

Dreadnought is a free-to-play shooter that puts players in the drivers’ seat of massive, beautiful spaceships and pits them against each other. The game boasts five distinct ship classes (including the titular dreadnought), and allows for 8v8 matchmaking in three different competitive modes. To truly put the cherry on top for Dreadnought’s launch, the title has received enhancements to the UI and visuals, alongside additional language support.

The title has made the rounds at several gaming trade shows including PAX South in early 2015, accruing a following before launching on the PlayStation 4 late last year. While the game is free to play, players have the option of purchasing DLC packs that give various perks and boosts.
