Cut from the Sol system, under the constant threat of a mysterious enemy, struggling to survive and rebuild, Terrans have finally found their way home... and they brought war with them.

Posted by MatthTheGeek on May 26th, 2012

Set 18 years after the events of Freespace 2, also known as the Second Shivan Incursion, the Blue Planet continuity, comprised of the Age of Aquarius and War in Heaven campaigns, is considered by many as one of the best fan-made continuation to a universe laid down by the best space shooter ever made.

In the Homeworld: Blue Planet demo, you can now command the awe-inspiring warships of the United Earth Federation and the Galactic Terran/Vasudan Alliance, and lead them into battle in the Homeworld 2 engine.

Features:

- All capital ships operated at the time of Blue Planet on the GTVA Terran and UEF sides, aside from the Sanctus.
- One basic deathmatch map.
- A fully-functional Gauntlet gametype directly inspired from HW@'s Survival gametype, with two maps.
- A Massive Battle map.

Install instructions are written in the readme and posted in the release thread. Hope you enjoy it !
