The trailer for Blackbird Interactives new game, ‘Hardware: Shipbreakers‘ is made up entirely of concept art for the moment, but still does a great job in delivering the main story line for the game as well as leaving the viewer with some questions like, what forced the Star Ships to crash on to the planet’s surface in the first place, and what alien technology is stored in some of the cargo holds aboard some of the huge ships.
The trailer takes place on LM-27 or, to the men who work there, ‘The Graveyard Planet’, and is a mysterious and hostile desert planet that belongs to Long March Industries who guard it ruthlessly against anyone attempting to take the riches that are contained within the cargo holds of the ancient star ships that have crashed there over the years.
There is currently a Closed Beta Signup available for those who would like to test out the early gameplay for Hardware, so if you are interested sign up here. The game comes from the same people that created Homeworld and the Executive Producer of Homeworld 2.
Long March Industries (LMI) is a ruthless interstellar megacorporation that owns all rights to LM-27, a mysterious and hostile desert planet littered with the buried wrecks of ancient starships. LMI oversees a galactic gold-rush as prospectors and fortune seekers converge on LM-27 in search of the untold riches buried in its burning sands. In this persistent multiplayer game, players command a fleet of massive vehicles as they explore, salvage and fight for fortune and survival in the world’s first planetary-scale social strategy game.
I love this scene. Not sure why, but it reminds me of Tatooine
