Homeworld: Vast Reaches is a 3D real-time strategy game designed for virtual reality. It is coming soon to Meta Quest.

Gearbox Entertainment and Farbridge unveil the release of Home World: Vast Reaches for Meta Quest 2 and Meta Quest 3.

The upcoming VR game will be a unique addition to the Homeworld series, featuring a fresh narrative that presents tactical space warfare in a new way for both VR and MR technologies. Players will have the freedom to observe the battles from different perspectives and easily position their spaceships into formations by simply dragging and dropping. The immersive 3D space battles can be enjoyed either in a room-sized setting or scaled down to conveniently fit on a table at any moment.

Richard Rouse III, the Studio Creative Director at FarBridge, expressed their commitment to creating a fresh and enjoyable experience for both Homeworld enthusiasts and strategy game lovers. Rouse mentioned his privilege in exploring the captivating space battles and distinctive characters of Homeworld, offering players the opportunity to engage with them in innovative ways through virtual and mixed reality platforms.

You are now able to include Homeworld: Vast Reaches in your desired list on the Quest Store.

A classic gets a VR makeover

Homeworld series originated from the popular game with the same name in 1999, which gained recognition as Game of the Year by several publications. Homeworld 2 was released in 2003 as a sequel.

The rights to the IP were acquired by Gearbox Entertainment in 2013, leading to the release of the Homeworld Remastered Collection in 2015. A prequel titled Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak was released in 2016. On May 13, Homeworld 3 will be launched for PC, continuing the story 100 years after the events of Homeworld 2.

UK studio Farbridge is currently developing Homeworld: Vast Reaches. This studio has a notable track record, having released numerous games in the past and also contributing to the development of Walkabout Mini Golf in virtual reality.

Homeworld: Vast Reaches fills a gap

There is a scarcity of real-time strategy games in virtual reality, making Homeworld: VR a highly appreciated addition. The game’s overall quality will be determined by the extent to which the traditional mouse and keyboard gameplay has been successfully modified for virtual reality.

VR RTS alternatives for Meta Quest with a space theme are Eternal Starlight, Ghost Signal: A Stellaris Game, and Gods of Gravity.
