IGN’s Best Adventure Game of 2015, Tales From the Borderlands is now available on a physical disc from your favorite retailer on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Windows PC! 




The second DLC Fleet Pack for Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak is now available on Steam! You can see the announcement video below. 

Known as the harbingers of death, the Khaaneph are a mysterious, nomadic people dwelling in the deep Southern Desert. Through intercepted transmissions, we know they are greatly feared by our most tenacious enemy, the Gaalsien. Our own reconnaissance confirms their mastery of the battlefield. Modifying scavenged and captured Gaalsien technology to deadly effect, both their technology and tactics are offensive-based. The Khaaneph often attack in waves and can swiftly disrupt resource operations, flank enemy forces, launch explosive drones, and bombard their prey with a hail of missiles.

This fleet pack will add the new playable fleet, Kiith Khaaneph, to multiplayer and skirmish modes in Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak. The Khaaneph Fleet includes a new CARRIER, SIEGE CRUISER, BASERUNNER, PRODUCTION CRUISER and new unit BLAST DRONE.
