Hardware: Shipbreakers' Baserunner


8:00 PM on 05.20.2013



We're slowly learning more about the enigmatic Hardware: Shipbreakers, the sci-fi RTS from the makers of Homeworld. Blackbird Interactive has just released a new trailer showcasing the "Baserunner," the versatile, customizable workhorse of the prospector ground forces. 

Though we've seen no gameplay footage yet, the art direction of these trailers and the concept art is stunning, and it's hopefully consistent with the in-game style. A wee bit of lore is also revealed, though LM-27 still remains a mystery. 

Apparently, gameplay will be shown off soon, and a closed beta is being planned for Q4 of this year. You can apply for beta access on the Hardware website right now

Get tready to learn about Hearts of Iron IV's tanks

I like it when a company modifies their logo to fit with the theme of whatever it's attached to. It's a stupid thing to like and here it's just an old timey World War II filter, but I like it nonetheless (see: SEGA matching ...more
