A new kind of spaceship to salvage: Ghost Ships

Ghost Ships are eerie, evacuated, and empty ships that have been mysteriously drifting through space. Any ship previously released in Hardspace: Shipbreaker can be a Ghost Ship, bringing a new layer of diversity among the wrecked vessels players can salvage. Located within these wreckages are AI Nodes, which must be found and destroyed before the objects they are attached to are placed into a processor or barge. As players dispose of the nodes, the ship’s condition will worsen: lights will malfunction, the air can be sucked out of a room, or the worst part, spooky music begins to play!

Collect stickers to customize your cutting tool!

Players can now display hard-earned achievements on their cutting tool with stickers! Completing certain tasks and reaching lifetime goals will unlock these new badges of honor that you can carry with you on your salvage trips. 

Hardspace: Shipbreaker’s community has already proven to be of huge importance in the game’s development throughout the Early Access period. Besides new ships, environmental components and optimizations, a number of much-requested features have already made their way into the game since launch. Open Shift mode, allowing players to relax and play without time or oxygen restrictions, as well as the new Weekly Ship leaderboard RACE, have been met with great success . Take a look at the game’s roadmap on Steam for a summary of what’s been added and is still to come – between new campaign acts, ships, tools, and more, the adventure is far from over!

Hardspace: Shipbreaker is available now on Steam Early Access. Celebrating the release of The Haunted Frontier major update, the game is currently 25% off on Steam until November 2nd. Console releases are planned at a later date.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
