Strategy 20 January 2016
An online RTS developed as the debut project from Blackbird Interactive, studio founded by former employees of Relic Entertainment - the creators of the cult Homeworld series. Originally, this game was entitled Hardware: Shipbreakers, however, the partnership with the current owner of the Homeworld franchise, the Gearbox Software company, resulted in changing the game’s title and its official inclusion as a part of the series. The game is set on the surface of a newly discovered planet, filled with shipwrecks left by alien civilizations. Under the supervision of the ruthless LMI corporation you roam the desert planet, digging out the wrecks for trading purposes. As there are more parties interested in such discoveries, all disputes quickly expand into armed conflicts. As you play, you can engage in exploration, undertake missions, or fight enemy AI either on your own or in cooperation with friends.
