Game Details


Your journey to the Homeworld begins here. Homeworld's epic tale begins in the far reaches of the universe. You were the benign lords of a peaceful society located in the center of a lush spiral galaxy.

No one challenged your peaceful existence. But then came the conquerors. Billions died, and the survivors were relocated to a cold, lifeless planet on the edge of the galaxy.

Hundreds of years later, all knowledge of your previous existence has been lost. Only vague myths remain, until the discovery of an ancient tablet buried within the ruins of a half-destroyed craft in the great banded desert.

This Guidestone reawakened knowledge of your ancestry, and set your race on the path home.
