Developer Blackbird Interactive and publisher Focus Home Interactive have released the Atlas Tugged update for the space sandbox salvaging sim Hardspace: Shipbreaker. The update comes with a variety of new additions, such as the Atlas-class of starships to salvage, overhaul of the Ship Catalog screen, improvements to the elemental systems found in the ships and much more.
The Atlas class ships bring new challenges to players, such as a two-floor layout, which challenges Shipbreakers to think as much vertically as horizontally. Their manufacturer Starleap Heavy Industries outfits them with its proprietary Quasar Thrusters, which are so massive that Shipbreakers have to crawl inside them to access the fuel system and to separate the thruster shell. Take note that accessing the interior via the thruster nozzle will cause the fuel lines to become unstable, so act quickly to reach the fuel flush switch at the back!
