Homeworld

by Relic

DESCRIPTION OF HOMEWORLD
Homeworld's epic tale begins in the far reaches of the universe. You were the benign lords of a peaceful society located in the center of a lush spiral galaxy. For as long as anyone could remember, no one challenged your peaceful existence. But then came the conquerors, invading with the sole purpose of overtaking your world. Billions died, and the survivors were relocated to a cold, lifeless planet on the edge of the galaxy. Hundreds of years later, all knowledge of your previous existence has been lost. Only vague myths remain, until the discovery of an ancient tablet buried within the ruins of a half-destroyed craft in the great-banded desert. This Guidestone reawakened the knowledge of your ancestry, and set your race on the path home - coordinates leading straight into the heart of the galaxy. Sixty years ago, construction began on the giant Mothership that will carry millions of your people into deep space. Construction is now complete. Your journey to the Homeworld begins here...

What makes Homeworld unique?

Real-time strategy is one of the most exciting and entertaining genres of gaming. These titles bring together the thrill of watching troops charge into battle on your order and the intensity of managing the conflict from high above the battlefield with the precision of a chess grandmaster. Now, for the first time, comes a game that brings heart-stopping 3-D warfare to the vastness of space. Homeworld is the next evolution of real-time strategy games, delivering a fresh experience in a totally 3-D universe. Homeworld gives players a new level of freedom to create new styles of gameplay while simultaneously delivering cinematic quality graphics, stunning special effects, brilliantly rendered ships and an innovative interface.

Homeworld still maintains all of the standards of a strategy game - from harvesting resources and exploring a huge environment to researching new technologies and building dozens of vessels. However, Homeworld takes space strategy in an exciting new direction by bringing the action into a 3-D world. By placing Homeworld in the boundless environment of deep space, the only frontier to limit game strategy is your imagination. Unlike strategy games that take place in two dimensions, there are no "choke points" in Homeworld where troops pile up waiting to move from one side of the map to the other. Instead, your enemy may attack from any direction. You will manage all aspects of your Armada, even down to the color scheme for the fleet and deciding when your ships need to dock for refueling.

Homeworld is about giving you choices. Invent your own strategies for Homeworld as you guide your Armada through its perilous journey home, or play against up to eight people through a LAN or across the Internet using WON.net.
