Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak is a real-time strategy computer game under development by Blackbird Interactive, published by Gearbox Software and scheduled for release on January 20, 2016. It is a prequel to the 1999 space-based real-time strategy video game Homeworld.
The game is set on the desert planet of Kharak, the home-in-exile of the Kushan (Hiigaran) people, 114 years prior to the events of Homeworld. Kharak is a dying world, the desert growing larger with each passing year, and the Kushan clans regularly war amongst one another. Then a satellite detects an object in the Great Banded Desert, known as the Jaraci Object, or the “primary anomaly” – revealed in Homeworld and Homeworld 2 to be the wreckage of the ancient starship Khar-Toba. Expeditions are sent by the Coalition of the Northern Kiithid into enemy territory to investigate, one of them under the leadership of chief science officer Rachel S’jet.
The expedition departs from Epsilon Base in the Kharakian desert, centered around the Kiith S’jet land carrier Kapisi. Shortly after the expedition departs, however, several Coalition bases, including Epsilon, are attacked and destroyed by Kiith Gaalsien, a group of zealots exiled from mainstream Kharakian society; the Gaalsien then attack the expedition at a S’jet salvage yard while the Kapisi is undergoing final outfitting.
