Homeworld 3: A return to a classic with strategic depth and stunning visuals

News

Homeworld 3 is a long-awaited sequel to famous Homeworld and Homeworld 2 games. The game will be available for playing on 13th May 2024. The predecessor Homeworld is known for its tactical and beautiful sci-fi real time strategy game. It also won the game of the year award back in the 2000s.

Blackbird interactive is coming back with the sci-fi galactic stories and it will be published by Gearbox Publishing. Homeworld 3 takes the player back into the vast expense of open space. The game offers captivating single0player campaign and a co-op mode.

A Legacy Reborn: The Story of Homeworld 3

The game continues to pick off from the events of Homeworld 2. The galaxy of Homeworld has enjoyed some period of serenity and peace.

“Since the end of Homeworld 2, the galaxy enjoyed an age of abundance thanks to the Hyperspace Gate Network. Cycles of plenty and war have come and gone.”

However, of course good things do not last forever the stability crumbles as the gates begin to fail catastrophically. The key of the gate may belong with Karan one of the reoccurring leading roles in previous games.

“Karan, who has passed into myth and religious idolatry, is the key to the mystery threatening a galaxy’s future.”

The players will take on the role of Commander. You will need to lead the Kushan people to a desperate quest to unfold the reasons behind this failure. As you progress the story will unfold beautifully with visually stunning cinematics and environmental storytelling.

Strategic Depth in 3D: Mastering the Battlefield

The core gameplay is still intact you can still command vast fleets of spaceships in a large galactic battle. You will need to collect resources to construct new ships and think strategically to form their deployment.

Homewolrd 3 introduces several new features like they added a massive space derelict. Megaliths are like gigantic remnants of ancient civilization. You can use the uneven terrain of Megaliths to step up a silent ambush to get a competitive advantage during battles. You can also add tactical complexity or use the terrain to hide yourself from ambushes.

You can now capture loots from planets and Megaliths. Previously, players had to rely on resource asteroids to collect resources. Now it is up to you for collecting these resources. Moreover, it also encourages you to explore the environment.

“Use the crumbling remains of an ancient civilization to funnel foes into a brilliant ambush or hide your fleet from powerful enemies. Fortresses teem with menacing turrets and invite your strike craft into dangerous trench runs deep behind enemy lines.”

A Feast for the Eyes and Ears

Homeworld 3 is visually delighting. The game is developed with Unreal Engine 4 and the game has several breathtaking space environments. You can encounter ethereal nebulas and star clusters. The spaceships of Homeworld 3 are very heavily detailed it has impressive lighting effects that can look almost real during the battle.

“Iconic ships cast silhouettes over the remains of ancient civilizations. Explosions ripple and erupt across hulls as one fleet stakes its victory over another.”

A New Frontier: Cooperative Mode

The Homeworld 3 has brand new co-op mode which means you can enjoy the game with your friends. They also have roguelike structure where the scenarios are procedurally generated. This mechanism is good for farming for resources for your spaceships. Strategically manage your fleet and you can claim powerful rewards.

“An all-new, co-op capable multiplayer mode extends your game beyond the campaign. Fusing Homeworld’s RTS gameplay with roguelike structure, one to three commanders take on a randomized series of fleet combat challenges”
