We’ve been dreaming about it for a long time: the Homeworld sequel is finally coming to PC. And it is the original team of the game, grouped in an independent studio, which is in charge. To you the deserts of Kharak!
Nostalgic players can rub their hands: Homeworld is back. A generation of gamers remembers with emotion the hours spent in this real-time strategy game which, moreover, was reissued last year ,
with revised and corrected graphics. In this first opus, you control a mothership, able to create fleets of attack and harvest vessels to fight against different enemies and, most importantly, find a home ground for your crew.
Homeworld is back on our gaming machines, more strategic than ever. But the title no longer has the head in the stars. On the contrary, he has his feet firmly anchored on earth …
or rather in the desert! Head to the imaginary planet Kharak, where the sand and sand dunes stretch as far as the eye can see and where the players’ strategic skills will be put to the test. And that the purists are reassured, we still remain in known terrain, since this episode serves as a prequel to Homeworld and Homeworld 2.
Whether in the single player campaign or in one of the multiplayer modes, the player is in command of a huge mobile battle platform. It is used to create ground and air combat units, to develop technologies, and to raise resources to finance the war. For fighting against the dangers of the Kharak deserts will not be easy.
The environment has been modeled with precision and the terrain must be widely exploited in combat. Fights that, incidentally, take place on areas announced as gigantic by the creators of the game, the Blackbird Interactive studio.
Five years of development by the original creators
The Canadian Blackbird Interactive (BBI) studio mixes developers and designers from major studios affiliated with Electronic Arts , but essentially consists of teams that designed the original Homeworld, developed at the time by Relic Entertainment and edited by Sierra .
When Sega relocated Relic Studio in 2013 (following the dismantling of THQ), some of the teams involved in the creation of Company of Heroes joined BBI.
Developed for 5 years, the game was to be called Hardwarebut, following the acquisition of the Homeworld franchise by GearBox Software (Borderlands), the latter moved closer to BBI to turn their initial project into a full-fledged episode of the series.
