Whether you are a fan of the original Homeworld or a newcomer, getting this title at half off is a great deal
Gearbox Software's latest game -- Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak is on sale for 50% off on Steam. Even better, if you buy the bundle with all of the DLC and the soundtrack, it's actually 56% off. It's all part of the Steam Summer Picnic Sale going on right now. The sale runs through July 4 and has some pretty great deals.
Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak is an RTS game set before the events of the original Homeworld series. A prequel of sorts, the story takes place on a dying planet where a race to the center of the desert is underway to recover an object that could save them all.
As with previous games in the Homeworld series, this one is very much story oriented. The game is linear and takes place over 13 missions, but typically those missions are pretty large and take a hefty chunk of time to complete.
