HARDWARE: Shipbreakers Makes “First Contact” in Gameplay Reveal Trailer

blackbird interactiveSci-fi real-time strategy games developer Blackbird Interactive has released the first gameplay trailer for their upcoming online strategy game HARDWARE: Shipbreakers. Following the release of a series of assets introducing the game’s visual style, this brand new trailer will show players how in-game graphics have been fully realized based upon the iconic, original concept art. Players can expect the game to closely resemble the stylized concept art as they traverse the varied terrain of LM-27.

In the gameplay trailer released today, entitled “First Contact,” players can get a first look at the derelict ship graveyards, unit formations and the completely free control camera as well as never before seen in-game units. This video marks players’ “First Contact” with the game and the game’s first contact with enemy units, the shipwrecks around which gameplay occurs. Fans of Homeworld, which came from the creators of HARDWARE: Shipbreakers, will notice the eerily familiar look and style of the air units in HARDWARE: Shipbreakers.
