Homeworld-Deserts-of-Kharak-image-3754

As Miklós pointed out back in December, the upcoming real-time strategy game formerly known as Homeworld: Shipbreakers – and formerly-formerly known as Hardware: Shipbreakers – is now called Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak.

The game’s gotten its first story trailer, called “Primary Anomaly”. It shows off some more of the game’s impressively sandy deserts, and the impressive scale of its units. It’s below the break if you’re interested. Which you should be.

A dying world. Warring factions. One final hope, hidden way out in the ever-encroaching desert. Sand. Yup, that sounds about right.

It still feels odd to me that we’re getting a new Homeworld game. Surreal even. Actually, it feels odd that we’re even getting a new, big name RTS that isn’t StarCraft. After the brilliance of the Homeworld Remastered Collection, I’m immensely excited.
