For the first time in 17 years, the thought lost stand-alone expansion to the original Homeworld developed by Barking Dog Studios is now available from GOG DRM free.
Set fifteen years after the events of the original Homeworld, Homeworld: Emergence introduces a new chapter in the saga and follows the exploits of the mining vessel Kuun-Laan as it struggles to combat a new threat unwittingly released by the Hiigarans on return to their home.
Previously, the game was known as Homeworld: Cataclysm, but as Blizzard entertainment have registered Cataclysm as a trademark after the release of the game has changed name to avoid confusion. Other than the subtitle change, the game is identical to the game released in 2000 and is now available exclusively on GOG, DRM-free and with a 10% discount.
Another addition to the series is Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak which has also been released on the GOG. This 2016 release from Blackbird Interactive, is a prequel to the space strategy saga, and takes players on a 13 mission campaign to join Rachel S’jet and her expedition to discover their destiny. The game features both land and air vehicles, massive environments, tactical combat and online multiplayer.
