Homeworld 3 unveils year one roadmap and PC system requirements

Homeworld 3 unveils year one roadmap and PC system requirements

Earlier this year, developer Blackbird Interactive (Minecraft Legends) announced that they would delay the release of Homeworld 3 to May 13th, initially scheduled for March 8th. The goal was to enhance and refine the game until its final release. This time, Homeworld 3 will be launched in May because the game is sharing its updated roadmap and PC system requirements.

The year one roadmap of Homeworld 3 will be divided between free and paid content. Here's what players can expect in the year after launch:

  • June Free Content Drop: New challenges and artifacts.
  • July Paid DLC: New playable faction, new faction-starting fleets, artifacts, and faction emblem.
  • August Free Content Drop: New challenges, new artifacts, and a new map & system.
  • October Paid DLC: New playable faction, new faction-starting fleets, and faction emblem.
  • Fourth Quarter Free Content Drop: New challenges, map, and more new content.

The free content will be available to all players, while the paid content is only for those who purchase the Collector's Edition of Homeworld 3 or the Year One Pass.

Blackbird Interactive also released new PC system requirements. The developer intended to optimize the game's performance before its release, and apparently, they succeeded, as the recommended specs decreased compared to the previous version of Homeworld 3.
