2021 Development plans
Despite the difficulties of 2020, which have affected everyone’s life as well as the game’s development, we continued to provide several updates and significantly improved the game. We deeply hope that Ultimate Admiral: Dreadnoughts has already become a game that you enjoy and thank you for your ongoing and precious feedback that we so much appreciate.
We want to assure you that we acknowledge all your concerns and suggestions and today we would like to inform you about what are our definite plans for the next patches that are going to be delivered within 2021.
We will continue to monitor your feedback and hotfix anything necessary that you report. The next major updates are organized as follows:
Core patch 1 - Core of campaign including Custom Battle saves
Core patch 2 - Crew and officers
Core patch 3 - R&D and Tech Progression
Core patch 4 - New nations and map expansion
The first short campaign version of the game will be playable for two nations (British Empire, German Empire) and will expand with content in every next core patch.
Patches 1-3 will be made based on a campaign map covering the North Sea and will feature the conflict between Great Britain and Germany. New ships, new game features will be offered as the game shapes up around this first playable campaign.
The Steam Early Access version of the game will become available upon the finalization and polish of Core Patch 3.
In Core Patch 4 and onwards we shall progressively add new playable nations and expand the map until we fully cover the campaign with everything needed.
We cannot promise a specific date of arrival for those next major updates but we confirm as above their flow of delivery within 2021. Furthermore, we confirm the allocation of another dedicated programmer who will focus solely on needed improvements for the ship design system.
Thank you all for reading. We will get back to you with specific information about the next big update of Ultimate Admiral: Dreadnoughts!
