    Taking the Real Time Strategy genre to new levels, the award winning Homeworld allows players to command a massive starfleet on a journey to the heart of the galaxy. Combining elements of space combat, strategic play and action within a three dimensional space, Homeworld offers players the unparalleled freedom to engage in combat from any position, commanding the smallest scout shit to an entire armada.

    Theepic tale begins in the centre of a lush spiral galaxy. For as long as anyone could remember, no one challenged this peaceful existence. Then the conquerors came, wiping out billions and relocating survivors to a lifeless planet on the edge of the galaxy. Now the time has come to return home...

    A revolutionary step in gameplay and technology, with a storyline extended over 16 single player missions and two races, all in cinematic quality 3D environments, Homeworld will leave you brainless.

  • A unique blend of existing game styles - including the core space combat elements, combined with strategic planning and action elements.

  • Extraordinary 'true' 3D engine for a completely fresh real-time gaming experience where danger can appear from any angle.

  • A multi-player mode which allows up to eight players to compete simultaneously via LAN or WON.net.

    "The most beautiful, dramatic strategy game ever. Full stop."

Unknown Source:
    Since the discovery of the Guide Stone 100 years ago deep in the equatorial sand of our planet, Kharak, our very origins have come into question. Now, after years of technological advancement and careful studay, there is one inescapable revelation: We do not belong here. From that moment of discovery on, we have dedicated ourselves to one goal -- returning home.
