is a space adventure in which you lead a nomadic space fleet against a powerful alien menace. You begin Cataclysm commanding a sect that has been marginalized after your people's victorious return to their homeworld of Hiigara. Traveling into uncharted space to repel an attack against another sect, your fleet happens upon an alien probe that harbors an ancient evil. As events unravel, you will need to survive the onslaught of an enemy with terrifying abilities you can't match, fight off opportunistic Turanic Raiders, and deflect the firepower of Imperial loyalists bent on destroying you and reclaiming Hiigara.
Cataclysm presents new features such as waypoints and sensor-manager attack commands to add a new dimension to the revolutionary combat and gameplay pioneered in Homeworld. Gameplay revolves around a central command ship, but one that produces an entirely new class of fighting, resourcing, and support craft with new technologies and weaponry.
Command multiple 360-degree 3D views as you manage ship production and deployment in a gorgeous outer-space environment. Cataclysm boasts 18 all-new ships, 25 new technologies, and 17 single-player missions while improving on the interface and technology that had already earned high accolades. A robust multiplayer system supports up to eight combatants, each playing one of two very different sides with its own tactical options.
