Play OverviewPlay Overview

Homeworld 3 (2024) is a standalone real-time strategy game where you command a fleet of spaceships in all-out galactic warfare amongst gigantic floating structures. Play focuses on building ships to add to your fleet while tactically planning intricate attacks in the fight for survival. It stands out for its cinematic gameplay and how using the environment is essential to gain a strategic advantage.

You play as the commander of a large mothership and must journey into a dangerous region of space known as The Anomaly to defeat a mysterious enemy called the Incarnate. Using mined resources, you amass your fleet by building various ships like large frigates with powerful ion cannons and smaller, agile fighters that have strength in numbers. You then lead your fleet into battle against the Incarnate, carefully directing the unfolding fight. Making tactical use of each map's crumbling megalith structures is vital for cover, masking your ship's signals, and offering a means for both ambush and retreat.

With practice, you can learn how to best tackle each of these game modes and perfect using the topography of the megaliths to your advantage. That being said, you will always face different challenges against different opponents, and the true measure of your skill is how well you can adapt to these in high-pressure situations.

The result is a game that captures the epic scale and cinematics of space battles while offering control down to the finest elements. Each strategic decision you make has its consequences, enabling even the most skilled and practised players to find a good challenge in every encounter.

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 7 for violence against humans that is not shown but is implied, as well as pictures or sounds likely to be scary to young children. Violence occurs in the form of strategic battles between enemy spaceships and your own. When a small spacecraft is destroyed, there is a large explosion and the craft disappears. Larger spacecraft leave wreckage behind in space. No human characters are seen to be killed or injured. Some of the cinematics include sequences that might be frightening to young children. There is infrequent use of very mild terms, such as 'hell'.
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.
