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, players will need to rethink their 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.
