New Hardspace: Shipbreaker Trailer Shows Off the Big Bangs of Screwing Up

by

Blackbird Interactive and Focus Home Interactive’s zero g spaceship salvaging game Hardspace: Shipbreaker launches into Steam Early Access on June 16. You’ll slice and dice massive vessels with cutting-edge gear for the precious loot inside, but today’s new “Big Bang” gameplay trailer explores the countless ways you can mess up on the job — with explosive consequences.

Every ship is a minefield and a puzzle in Hardspace: Shipbreaker. You’re free to cut and destroy at will in this advanced sandbox physics sim, with the freedom to strip down ships and salvage their components as you choose. But one wrong cut might trigger an explosive decompression, sucking you out into the vacuum of space. Or a chain reaction that ignites the fuel line. Or a reactor meltdown that wipes out everything!

But don’t worry — even death won’t get you off the hook. You can always deepen your debt to the LYNX Corp. by spawning as a clone of yourself. It’s just another misstep on the adventure as you upgrade your equipment, take on lucrative contracts, and make more money for the people in charge.

As Hardspace: Shipbreaker arrives in early access, the team at Blackbird and Focus Home are committed to listening to community feedback and expanding on the game’s promise with regular content updates and improvements. Hardspace: Shipbreaker is also in development for PlayStation®4 and Xbox One.
