That's One Less Free-To-Play Game To Worry About

That's One Less Free-To-Play Game To Worry About

There once was a game called Hardware: Shipbreakers. Made by some ex-Relic developers, it was going to be a free-to-play game. Now that it’s got Gearbox money behind it, however, that won’t be necessary.


Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford tweeted over the weekend:

@Giolon With our investment, Homeworld Shipbreakers can be a proper commercial release. No need for F2P.

As pretty as it looked, the fact Shipbreakers was going to be F2P had hung over it like a black cloud, people concerned at the prospect of junk like microtransactions getting in the way of their strategy.

Good to hear that won’t be an issue now.
