Hardware: Shipbreakers trailer shows in-game footage and announces beta

Revealed back in March through a lovely teaser trailer composed solely of gruff voice over and concept art, Hardware: Shipbreakers stood out largely for being in development by a team of ex-Relic staff who were responsible for designing Homeworld.

Placing you in charge of a salvage team who break down wrecked ships on planet LM-27, the latest trailer shows in-game footage that suggests you’ll be strapped for resources in this free-to-play RTS.

Here’s the trailer:

According to Hardware’s site, you’ll “Hunt for riches among a graveyard of derelict starships on the mysterious planet, LM-27. Reclaim precious cargo and adopt exotic technologies from the space-wrecks littered across the desert wasteland. Combat hostile competitors, equally desperate for wealth. Survive harsh storms and burning temperatures. Endure the poisonous and grinding dust that wears down man and machine alike. If you survive these, fortune can be your reward. Or death in the sand your lonely fate.“

Each wreck looks to be the source of a wealth of material, and, considering the size of the things, breaking one down could be a pretty lengthy operation. Likely where the challenge will come in: I can imagine you’ll have to fight off other salvage crews while you try to break down one of the metal carcasses.

I’m a big fan of the size difference between those wrecked hulks and the tiny units hoping to salvage them, reminds me of the Gadani graveyard in Pakistan.

You can sign up to be considered for the beta over here.

And here is that original teaser trailer released back in March:

Cheers, PC Gamer.
