Everything we know about Homeworld 3: Release date, platforms, gameplay, trailers

Whether you’re familiar with the Homeworld franchise or a sci-fi fanatic looking to get into a new universe full of wonder and danger, Homeworld 3 is looking like one of the most interesting big releases coming next year. This third instalment arrives more than 20 years after Homeworld 2 (2003), but hot on the heels of the Homeworld remastered collection (2015) and Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak (2016), a prequel developed by Blackbird Interactive, who’s now in charge of the threequel. Here’s everything we’ve learned about it so far.

While the first two games are all about space travel, exploration, and battles, Deserts of Kharak took us to the desert planet of Kharak 106 years before the events of the original Homeworld, expanding on the history of the Kushan before they took to the stars. In the first Homeworld, Kharak is destroyed by the Taiidan Empire in retaliation for creating hyperspace jump technology. The Kushan survivors then journey with a mothership and its surrounding fleet to reclaim their ancient homeworld of Hiigara from the Taiidan. In the second game, however, the Kushan – now Hiigaran again after defeating the Taiidan – must face a new enemy called the Vaygr as the stakes are raised even higher.
