Blackbird Interactive and Focus Home Interactive have released the “Business Is Booming” update for the hit early access sandbox spaceship salvaging game Hardspace: Shipbreaker, introducing a brand-new ship archetype and the Demo Charge tool for fresh salvaging opportunities!
Today’s update rolls out the Javelin ship archetype, offering a totally new challenge with a drastically different look and feel from Hardspace’s previous vessels. With most of its features externally exposed along the ship’s spine, you’ll need to completely rethink your salvaging approach.
Meanwhile, the new Demo Charge tool adds even more options to your arsenal, giving you an explosive that can be placed or thrown freely before remote detonation. This comes in addition to a revamp of the tool durability system, as well as a variety of QOL updates and fixes.
You can also now get Hardspace’s original soundtrack as a standalone item or bundled with the base game on Steam. This soundtrack will continue to expand during early access at no additional cost.
Hardspace: Shipbreaker is available now on Steam Early Access, with limited-time special discounts for the base game and OST bundle. A launch on consoles is in development for a later date.
