Paul Ruskay unveils first tracks from the HOMEWORLD 3 soundtrack

For me, the most eagerly-awaited video game of 2022 is currently easily Homeworld 3, the long-awaited new game in the long-gestating space opera strategy series. One of the key ingredients in the series' success is the amazing soundtrack work by Paul Ruskay, whose music for Homeworld (1999), Homeworld 2 (2003), Homeworld Remastered (2015) and Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak (2016) has always been spine-tingling.

Publishers Gearbox have released two tracks from the soundtrack to Homeworld 3 to what the appetite for the full game release.

Homeworld 3, developed by Blackbird Interactive (founded by the creators of the original Homeworld and Homeworld 2 when they were at Relic Entertainment), is currently due for release in late 2022. A mobile spin-off game is also currently in development.

Modiphius Entertainment are also releasing a tabletop roleplaying game based on the Homeworld universe this winter, and have just opened preorders on their website.

Ruskay being in on Homeworld 3 makes it a guaranteed buy for me. Homeworld really has some of the best soundtracks of video game history, giving the setting a truly unique feeling where a science fiction future doesn't have to resemble today's West in style. It's immensely inspiring.

Favourites from Homeworld 1 include imperial battle and raider battle music from, and of course "Sacred Gardens", the ambient theme of Kadesh which hints at the slow breathing of a hidden giant. And from Homeworld 2, "Keeper" is a classic.
