'Homeworld HD' Now Called 'Homeworld Remastered Collection'

by Rainier on March 5, 2014 @ 8:15 p.m. PST

Crafted with the help of the original creators and fan community, Homeworld Remastered Collection introduces Relic's classic space strategy games Homeworld and Homeworld 2 to modern players using the latest advances in graphics rendering technology.

Having acquired the franchise last year from THQ, Gearbox Software is now re-introducing homeworld to players new and old.

Since the discovery of the Guide Stone 100 years ago deep in the equatorial sand of our planet, Kharak, our very origins have come into question.

Now, after 100 years of technological advancement and careful study, there is one inescapable revelation: We do not belong here.

We are the last of our kind, and we have dedicated ourselves to one goal - returning home...a mission that will put everything at risk.

As you guide your fleet, you’ll become a commander who makes strategic decisions that determine the survival of humankind. From epic spaceship battles and desperate struggles for victory to building a massive fleet and watching it persist throughout missions, Homeworld is defined by amazing moments that helped it become a legend.

Homeworld Remastered Collection includes updated high-res textures and models, new graphical effects, and support for HD, UHD, and 4K resolutions. Homeworld’s original audio and video artists have also recreated cinematic scenes in high fidelity.

Homeworld Remastered Collection uses Homeworld and Homeworld 2’s original source audio to create a stunning new mix of effects and music. On top of that, multiplayer for both games has been combined into one centralized mode that will allow you to interact with other players like never before.

This collection also includes archival versions of Homeworld Classic and Homeworld 2 Classic, preserving the purest form of the original releases with compatibility for modern operating systems.

The Homeworld Remastered Collection will soon be available for pre-order on leading PC digital platforms.

Gearbox is running a survey on what fans would like to see if a Collector's Edition.
