A galaxy of content ahead
Hardspace: Shipbreaker has been regularly updated since launch, and there’s plenty of fresh content still to come. While today’s update, available now on the beta branch, brings a new subclass of ship and more tutorials for new players, over the course of Early Access, players can look forward to new ships, tools, upgrades, game modes, additional customization options, and more. The upcoming releases of Acts 2 and 3 will also bring the campaign to a total of over 40 hours of gameplay. Throughout Early Access, the community continues to be an important part of the game’s evolution, with highly requested features such as the “Open Shift” campaign mode making their way into recent and future updates. For more info on what’s still to come, take a look at the Living Roadmap. Players can also share their feedback on social media about today’s update before it heads to the main branch later this month.
