Having spent almost two years in early access, Hardspace: Shipbreaker now has a final release. Alongside the 1.0 release, Hardspace: Shipbreaker is now also available on PC Game Pass.
Having left early access, Hardspace: Shipbreaker now features the final act of its campaign, bringing its story to a conclusion. Aside from the campaign, Hardspace: Shipbreaker has a few other game modes, including the R.A.C.E. game mode where players can compete with each other through the leaderboards, or even the Freeplace game mode that aims to offer a calming, meditative experience.
Thanks to its exit from early access, Hardspace: Shipbreaker now also has Ship Saving, allowing players to save their in-progress salvage for later. The game has also revamped its progression, with balancing based on feedback and data.
Hardspace: Shipbreaker is a game about salvaging old, derelict spaceships for a massive, uncaring corporation. The game leans heavily into its dystopian trappings, having players juggle their budgets, as well as their debts and quotas. It got a following thanks to its unique gameplay that emphasised the puzzle-solving nature of its shipbreaking.
