Homeworld 3 new feature

Homeworld 3 will support Ray Tracing, gets PC requirements


Blackbird Interactive has just released the official PC system requirements for its new sci-fi RTS, Homeworld 3. Moreover, the game will have Ray Tracing effects. Plus, it’ll support NVIDIA’s DLSS 3 and AMD’s FSR 2.

The devs will use Ray Tracing in order to improve the game’s shadows. Thanks to RT, PC gamers will get soft shadows with contact hardening.

Although Homeworld 3 will support DLSS 3 Frame Generation, there is no word on whether it will support Ray Reconstruction. Additionally, it appears that the game will not support Intel XeSS. Blackbird claimed that the game will be compatible with the Intel Arc GPUs.
