About This Content

HOMEWORLD: DESERTS OF KHARAK - SOBAN FLEET PACK
Kiith Soban are a highly respected force within the Northern Coalition. Although their tactical prowess is renowned, it is their ability to leverage advanced military technologies to deliver devastating long-range attacks, disrupt enemy movements, and manipulate the battlefield that has made them one of the most effective fleets to enter the battlefield in years.

This fleet pack will add the new playable fleet, Kiith Soban, to multiplayer and skirmish modes in Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak. The Soban Fleet includes a new CARRIER, RAILGUN, BASERUNNER and BATTLECRUISER.

Additional Features
  • New Soban Carrier Captain Voice
  • New Soban voice processing
  • Unique Soban Textures for all units in the fleet

Soban Carrier:
  • Microwave Emitter - a new top tier weapon that will deploy deadly microwave radiation to a targeted area, damaging any enemy units while they’re in the AOE field.
  • Armed Logistics Modules - Soban armed logistics modules have a short-range defense system that slows and damages nearby enemies. Additionally, the Soban Carrier can redirect power to increase launch distance, rate-of-fire, and damage capability of these modules.
  • Defensive Railguns - The Soban Carrier does not use smaller calibre point-defense cannons. Instead, they have railguns for defense.

Soban Battlecruiser:
  • Multi-Phase Railgun Turrets - Soban Battlecruisers have been outfitted with dual railgun turrets in place of standard cannons.

Soban Baserunner:
  • Targeting Jammer - A new ability that allows Soban baserunners to disable weapons in a target area.

Soban Railgun:
  • Mark Target Ability - Soban Railguns can paint a target within range, helping friendly units to do more damage while the mark is active.

Great DLC. Soban is a very unique faction, and my personal favorite from the lore. Their units look and sound awesome, and offer a more tech focused playstyle over the Coalition. All for less than the cost of a sandwich. If you play this game, its a must buy.

The DLC doesn't work in multiplayer, it just crashes the game. Waste of money.

Targeted Microwave - That's got to be worth it just for that!

But in all seriousness, it is more than just a few new units, it is more about the tech capabilities the Soban fleet brings to the table.

A refreshing variant fleet. The railgun focus makes for an interesting angle from traditional Coalition.

A fleet for the price of a single league of legends character, come with its own unique units variations and their own skins. Completely worth it.

Buy it now if you want a nice little extra half-faction and support the game.

Buy it on sale if you want to have a nice little extra.

Don't buy it if you have no need in a different flavour for the Coalition faction.
