As I’ve been working through my backlog of emails this evening, I came across a message with the following title. “Homeworld Creators Release New Hardware Trailer: Look at the size of that TRUCK!” I totally ignored the majority of the title and thought “Oooooh, trucks, yay” and hastily headed over to the video linked within the message, a video you can see below the jump. It contains a truck, a monster of a truck, perhaps the biggest truck I’ve ever seen. It belongs to an upcoming RTS from some of the team behind the Homeworld games. Their new company, Blackbird Interactive is making something called HARDWARE: Shipbreakers and I am just a bit excited after watching the trailer.
Hardware is set at some point in the future on a mysterious planet known as LM-27 and is a free-to-play sci-fi RTS. With massive trucks. Isn’t that enough? Ok so maybe not, but right now I don’t have much to go on apart from some very pretty concept art and the promise of a beta in Q4 2013. You can sign up for that right here.
