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.
