Stars in Shadow: Super Dreadnought Thumbnails by AriochIV Stars in Shadow: Super Dreadnought Thumbnails by AriochIV

The super-dreadnought is a shared technology that can be researched in the late game to unlock a super-sized hull that's larger than faction-specific battleships, but still smaller than the mobile Dread Stars. We also plan to use an "ancient" version of the hull as an automated berserker unit to fill the role of a wandering space monsters, so the player may be able to snag one earlier in the game if he is resourceful (and lucky). 

Stars in Shadow is a space 4X strategy game currently under development. 
Steam Early Access is available now!

Are the Berserkers similar to berserker probes?

My idea is that it's a damaged relic of the Great War, the crew killed in battle, but the automated systems still active. When the warp lanes collapsed at the conclusion of the war, it was stuck in whatever system it happened to be in, but now that the warp lanes have been restored it has begun limping around the galaxy looking for targets. It wasn't deliberately intended to be a true "berserker" (doomsday weapon), and it can't self-replicate or anything like that.

Ah, I see. Are there any plans for something akin to true berserker weapons or no?

If by "true berserker weapons" you mean self-replicating doomsday weapons, no. Doesn't seem like much fun in game terms.

Or at least the remnant of one.

Oh well, I assumed that was the case anyway, just thought I'd check.
