Homeworld 3, the third mainline installment in the series of real-time strategy games originally introduced by Relic Entertainment in 1999, has received updated PC specs following the team’s success in further optimizing the performance and gameplay of the title ahead of its release on May 13 on Steam and the Epic Games Store, developer Blackbird Interactive and publisher Gearbox Software have announced. Complementing the lowering of recommended specs are a year one roadmap and Collector’s Edition of the game, which includes a 14-inch physical Khar-Kushan Mothership, Homeworld 3 soundtrack by Paul Ruskay, and other bonuses.

A story synopsis:

Homeworld’s game-of-the-year winning story continues. 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. Now the gates themselves are catastrophically failing and Karan, who has passed into myth and religious idolatry, is the key to the mystery threatening a galaxy’s future.
