The 5v5 spaceship shooter Dreadnought from Spec Ops: The Line developer Yager goes into closed beta tomorrow, April 29th.

There are three options to try and secure entry into the beta.

The first two come in the form of Founders Packs and guarantee access to the closed beta.

The Hunter Pack is priced at $9.99 and comes with 500 in-game points, a week long XP boost, and an exclusive ship decal, emblem, and coating.

Players can spend the in-game points on cosmetic items for their ships, which will come in handy because the Hunter pack comes with access to the medium-sized Dreadnought hero ship the Morningstar. For players who want their friends to experience the game alongside them, they will be given two Fleet Recruitment packs which they can use to invite friends into the beta.

The Mercenary Pack is the more expensive of the two options, running $39.99. This pack comes with five hero ships including the Morningstar, 3,000 in-game points, exclusive decals, and a month long XP boost. Players will also receive four Fleet Recruitment Packs to give out to friends.

For those who don’t want to opt into the beta by paying, you can still sign up for the closed beta, though entry is not guaranteed.
