Hardspace: Shipbreaker – The Business is Booming update launches today with new trailer!
Blackbird Interactive and Focus Home Interactive’s acclaimed space sandbox salvaging game, Hardspace: Shipbreaker, today launches The Business is Booming update. Continuing the game’s successful Early Access period, this latest update brings a brand-new ship archetype and tool for fresh salvaging opportunities! Join the devs in today’s update trailer and grab the game today at 30% off on Steam.
New tool and ship type expand the cosmic fun
The Business is Booming update is the most game-changing yet, bringing a new ship type and, for the first time, a new tool into the mix. The Javelin ship archetype is the biggest addition, offering a totally new challenge with a drastically different look and feel to Hardspace’s previous ships. With most of its features externally exposed along the ship’s spine, you’ll need to rethink your salvaging approach entirely. Meanwhile, the new Demo Charge tool adds even more options to the player’s arsenal. The explosive can be placed or thrown freely, before being remotely detonated. This comes in addition to a revamp of the tool durability system alongside QOL updates and fixes.

In addition, players can now get the Original Soundtrack as a standalone or bundled with the game on Steam. Enjoy music from the frontiers of industrialized space and receive a special discount! This soundtrack will be expanded over the game’s Early Access period at no additional cost.

Welcome to Hardspace: Shipbreaker
an immersive, zero-g, physics-based game
that puts you in the role of a starship salvager.
I’m Elliot Hudson, Game Director on Shipbreaker
and I’m here to talk to you about our next major update:
THE BUSINESS IS BOOMING UPDATE.
[THE BUSINESS IS BOOMING]
In this update, things are going extremely well for your employer
the massive LYNX Corporation.
They’ve just acquired the salvage rights to Javelin-class starships
bringing a brand new type of vessel to Hardspace: Shipbreaker for the first time.
Manufactured by Helix Industries, Javelins are highly versatile and modular
used primarily for industrial and scientific tasks.
They have a very unique shape,
with extremely tight and narrow interiors to explore.
Many of the ship’s components and key structural
elements are exposed externally along its spine.
The Javelin’s modules are held together with
a complex collection of heavy-duty struts and couplers
which require careful planning and coordination to dismantle.
To help break down these new ships
LYNX has used its corporate success and power
to clear the legal red-tape surrounding a brand new tool
the Demo Charge.
These little pockets of destruction use similar technology as your laser Cutter
making deep cuts before then exploding
which allows for precise and controlled demolition at a distance.
More high-powered than your Cutter,
they can be used on nearly any material you encounter.
Once placed they are detonated in a sequence
allowing you to create an elaborate series of explosions
to quickly and gracefully split a ship into salvage.
Be warned however
placed Demo Charges need to be disarmed to be retrieved
and LYNX seems to have cut costs by adding
a dangerously touchy disarming mechanism.
Also included in this update, we’ve done a rework of the tool durability system
making the effects of using damaged tools clearer,
more meaningful and more manageable.
There is also a new bundle of stickers available,
as well as all the usual optimizations
bug fixes, and quality of life changes
we like to include in every version.
We’re extremely excited to get
THE BUSINESS IS BOOMING UPDATE into your hands
and we can’t wait to see what you all do with it.
