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.

This game is very expensive on STEAM so only buy it if it's under 10 euros.

Currently, it is 2,5 euros at IG as of this writing.

The game is not that optimized, but it is okay, the gameplay is good, the "fleet" can carry over just like in Homeworld 1 and 2. However, enemy forces do not seem to scale with the player's forces, so the campaign can steamroll to winning or losing more.

Prequel to HW 1 but it is ground-based combat. Units can gain veterancy and unit chatter and combat effects are well done.

Good if you are a fan of the homeworld universe.
  • Good gameplay
  • Good story
  • You have skirmish.
  • Bad optimalised engine
  • SHORT about 10 hours on classic,low replay value
  • Multiplayer is dead
