The game is a terrestrial RTS (real time strategy) type that is actually a continuation of the classic Homeworld games.
Through it you can experience the story of Rachel Saget as she leads her people in search of their destiny and homeland through the desert of Kharak.
The people she leads are an army assembled to fight the dangers lurking on the shifting sands beyond the desert dunes.
In multiplayer or single-player mode, you take control of a fleet of land and air vehicles, from nimble light assault vehicles to massive heavy desert cruisers, built to conquer the desert.
With vehicles, you will make your way through massive dunes, deep craters, and enemy canyons on very spacious maps in a convincing video world.
The missions you go through require you to use tactics such as taking advantage of the high ground or ambushing over the dune lines in ground combat. You can also attack the enemy army and their resources directly.
Of course, like any strategy, you need to make meaningful choices when it comes to managing, in this case, military resources that will affect your chances of survival.
You can also play the game online with other players in various game modes, including ranked. Before you can find your homeland through adventures in the desert, you must overcome all the secrets it holds.
