Homeworld 2 continues the epic struggle of the Hiigarans and their leader Karan S'jet. Many thought their hardships would end when they returned to Hiigara, yet fate has not been so kind to the Exiles. Now the Hiigarans face a new and bitter enemy, a renegade clan from the eastern fringes of the galaxy, who wield the power of the ancients. Homeworld 2 chronicles the valiant journey of the Mothership and its crew into the oldest regions of the galaxy to confront their new foe and discover the truth behind their exile.
Accompanying the engrossing single player saga is multiplayer competition for up to seven other players. Startling space effects like charged gas clouds, sparkling nebulae, and ghostly derelict hulks of space ships are rendered with spectacular Hollywood-style special effects. For jaw-dropping 3D space strategy, there is still no place like HOMEWORLD.
