Hold on a second, what's this? A new Homeworld? Yep, Deserts of Kharak is a new ground-based sci-fi RTS that takes place before the events of Homeworld. On a sandy Dune like planet. Previously teased as Homeworld: Shipbreakers, this new game comes from Blackbird Interactive, a studio made up of Homeworld and Company of Heroes veterans. And with a release date a little over a month away, you can chalk this announcement up as an early, and most welcome, Christmas present.

Oh, and we get a very stylish and very cool looking trailer for the game. The art style, which has an almost oil-painting like quality to it, looks fantastic.

Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak is out January 20 for PC.

It looks good, like playing the cinematics in colour from the original games.

Looks really fun like a mix of old school C&C and TA

So homeworlds gimmick was it was a 3d rts, now this looks like a run of the mill 2d rts, so whats the point of it being "homeworld"? cheap ip?

storyline and art style

how do you not see it as being 3d?

I only have one eye.

I mean in homeworld it was in space, you could attack from any angle right? This is on the ground, its a 2d fight even though the graphics are 3d.

They might have 3D based terrain stuff, like TA and Ground Control, so positioning and elevation all matters, etc.

it being presented in 3d is just means objects have an x,y,z coordinate in space

the design tricks with the original homeworlds' skybox and zero grav movement are more of a scale aesthetic against the vastness of space

they're both still 3d even if you are a cyclops

From memory while homeworld was in space generally you lived and fought on an orbit disc around a star anyway?

You chose where to move to on a disc but then you could project up or down from that plane to move to a spot in 3d space. Really though, there was rarely a point and I found myself moving and fighting in a 2d plane anyway, so I guess it was more of a gimmick than anything. Maybe it got more important later on in the game though, I don't think I ever played much past the first couple of levels
