Today the developers announced on twitter and facebook that the closed alpha begins! those of you who have yet signed up to test the game do so now if you want the possibility of being in the Alpha or possibly to the very least the beta! link below to the facebook page but i will quote it as well:
Captains, Dreadnought is ready for undocking! We are pleased to announce that today, the game starts its first Pre-Alpha testing phase with limited participation and testing hours. Our Pre-Alpha testers are under NDA (loose lips sink ships!), but we can tell you that they will be helping us to focus on things like overall gameplay, map layout, balance, ship customization and in-game progression.
Didn’t get invited to test yet? Don’t despair- we’re pulling from our current registrants and more people will be invited soon, so make sure you’ve signed up for the Beta on our website. We’re excited to start this new phase for Dreadnought and looking forward to getting feedback from our testers!*
