Hardspace: Shipbreaker drops early access next month

Zero-gravity salvage sim Hardspace: Shipbreaker’s two-year track through Steam Early Access ends next month as developer Blackbird Interactive opens the studio for the full version on Steam and the Windows Store and Xbox Game Pass on May 24.

Hardspace, in case you missed it, is a very satisfying game that cuts derelict spaceships from your orbital wrecking yard, stripping space shuttles and freighters until they’re nothing but spare parts and scrap. Of course, spacecraft are complex beasts, and the threat of explosive decompression, a ruptured engine core, or being slammed into the head by 10 tons of cordless steel is a constant occupational hazard.
