I assume this is the final form of Shipbreakers?

Hmmm mixed feelings, having pre-Homeworld Kith wars will probably be fun if done well but I was kind of keen to see the shipwreck planet story line shake out.

The pun was too good, sorry. ;)

Wreckland was literally Kharak with a name change according to the statement made when BI teamed up with Gearbox, so we are literally getting that... minus the mmo nonsense.

That's quite the surprise actually; they haven't said much recently about their game and suddenly, it's done.


Hopefully it's good, I need more RTS in my life, and then they can get to work on Homeworld 3

Re: HOMEWORLD: Deserts of Kharak Trailer
This looks so good I am furious that I do not already have it.

The fact that they really seem to have focused  a lot on 3D space and bringing it to a traditionally 2D battlefield excites me. I don't wanna fanboy out, but it looks to be the most focused interpretation of terrain influencing battlefield conditions this side of the Total War series.

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".

<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"

<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

Actually this reminds me more of Ground Control in that sense - which was also a Sierra game of the same era than HW1, incidentally.

I had similar thoughts from the early demos (wow those were aerodynes) but from this I am unsure.

Re: HOMEWORLD: Deserts of Kharak Trailer
I was talking not so much about the style than the terrain/battlefield conditions part, which was very much a major gameplay element in GC.

Yea GC did have that, but not to this extreme level. Man those games were fun though. World in Conflict was the tits, too.

Re: HOMEWORLD: Deserts of Kharak Trailer
That looks quite awesome!
The way combat is influenced by terrain imperfections is what jumps into focus when I watch the trailer.
And the beauty of it all of course.

Re: HOMEWORLD: Deserts of Kharak Trailer
This really came out of nowhere for me. I am a huge fan of Homeworld. It seems like something I would genuinely want to pre-order. But I have some doubt's about the new ground style combat.

Probably still going to get this though.

 
Re: HOMEWORLD: Deserts of Kharak Trailer
Definitely got some very mixed feels about this.

One the one hand, Homeworld is alive again. But I'm not sure I like the idea of a prequel, mostly because there's been a lot of prequelitis going around for the past few years among game developers.

I'm also not too sure how the desert combat is going to hold up. I don't doubt that there's going to be a variety of units, but I hope they give us an equal variety of terrain, and I don't mean thirty different shades of the same windblown desert landscape.

Yeah I dunno about the gameplay but the trailer has some great voice/music with it. Sets a very nice atmosphere

Seems like they're starting proper prerelease marketing now.

Here's a small behind the scenes vid:

And ign posted two videos, showing parts of a few missions with developer commentary.

"For generations, you have violated the first commandment of our creator [...] Diplomacy has failed."

First glimpse of who the 2nd (and 3rd?) faction on Kharak are ... the fact that what seems to be the "religious fanatics"-faction has hovercraft reminds me a bit of original Ground Control...
