Blackbird Interactive and Focus Home Interactive are excited to bring Hardspace: Shipbreaker, a brand new IP for this space sandbox salvaging game, to PC via Steam Early Access in less than a month, on June 16. With the new Gameplay Overview trailer, future players will learn everything they need to know about the hard life of a shipbreaker for Lynx Corporation, cutting up and salvaging derelict spaceships in orbit above Earth.
Expand and upgrade your arsenal of high-tech salvaging tools in a sci-fi sandbox
From the tools at your disposal, their best use-cases, to how to make the most money from every ship you’re sent to cut apart, learn everything there is to know to be a successful spaceship salvager. Hidden dangers, valuable logs, and the deep history of this brand-new, realistic sci-fi universe are concealed inside every vessel. As you become an experienced cutter, you’ll upgrade your gear and skills on the path to paying off your debt and making a home out in the solar system. Of course, every mistake costs you, so you’ll need to be at your best even in a fully upgraded rig.
