HOMEWORLD: DESERTS OF KHARAK

A ground-based RTS prequel to the classic Homeworld games. Assemble your fleet and lead them to victory on the shifting sands of Kharak in this compelling strategy game. Crafted by Blackbird Interactive, a studio founded by veterans of Homeworld and Company of Heroes, Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak takes players to the deserts of Kharak where danger lurks over every dune.

EXPERIENCE AN ORIGIN STORY

In Deserts of Kharak’s campaign, an anomaly is discovered deep in the southern desert. An expedition is sent, but the story is not that simple. Discover the story of Rachel S'jet as she leads her people on a quest to find their destiny in an exciting campaign.

HEAVY DUTY HARDWARE

Take control of fleets of land and air vehicles – from nimble light attack vehicles to massive heavyweight cruisers – built to conquer the desert.

MASSIVE ENVIRONMENTS

Fight your way across massive dune seas, deep craters, and hostile canyons in sprawling maps – all in unprecedented fidelity and scale.

TACTICAL COMBAT

Position your fleet to take advantage of the high ground or create ambushes across dune lines in terrestrial combat. Attack your enemies’ resource operations, or assault their military head-on.

STRATEGIC DECISIONS

Meaningful choices in resource management, fleet composition, and technology research directly impact your chances of survival.

ONLINE MULTIPLAYER

Compete online solo or with friends in a variety of game modes, including ranked play, to rise through the ranks and become the most powerful Fleet Captain on Kharak.

Before you can find your Homeworld, you must first unlock the secrets of the desert.

As the title states, the Homefront mod will be changing focus from the tried and true Homeworld series to the prequel, Deserts of Kharak. At this time, I do not know if modding is supported, but we would love to shift focus to a game with new technologies that allow space and land capabilities.

Transferring the mod from classic to remastered as posed quite a problem with how the game files have been structured in terms of models and textures. This means that in order to move the mod to remastered, everything has to be redone. With a new game on the horizon, we have decided to push into new territory rather than try and reclaim old territories. That isn't to say we won't come back to the remastering of Homefront, but our focus will be on trying to learn new techniques and abilities with a fresh game that can take advantage of today's newer technologies.

Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak releases on January 20th, 2016.

4get it.

DoK is a fast paced minimalistic game and it suits it.
Complex is the polar opposite of all of that in every respect.

Definitely brillant, with a total new approach. I've always wondered how Homeworld would look on ground battles and I'm not at all disappointed. The story, the visual fidelity and the Homeworld art direction are both impressive. The Homeworld saga is back. The Artificial Intelligence isn't that difficult, but well that's not really problematic for the title to be honest. Keep up the awesome work BBI!
