Homeworld Remastered Announced

A Legendary Series Returns...
A Legendary Series Returns…

Thanks to everyone who made me aware of this during my snoozing hours. ;) The folks at Gearbox have finally announced their intentions for the recently-acquired Homeworld license with Homeworld Remastered. The remastered versions will come with updated graphics (including support for 4K displays), updated audio and music along with a centralized multiplayer mode that will “allow you to interact with other players like never before.” The original versions of both Homeworld 1 and 2 will be included as well, but updated to run on modern operating systems. There’s also a poll on the site asking folks if they’d want a physical collector’s edition as well. Like, duh, who doesn’t, right? ;) I’ll bring you more info as I get it.

  1. Where in the survey do I say “Hobbitses can keep their nasssty trinkets and give me downloaded version with complete soundtrack in flac”.

  2. I’m kinda down with the big mothership with the winky lights. It’ll look good next to my set of Enterprises from Diamond Select.
    Hopefully there’s a button to make it say quotes from the game. “The mothership… is underway.”

  3. Have I missed something or are there absolutely no in-game screenshots yet? I’m sure they’re coming soon, but it’s a bit weird. I’m totally excited regardless.

  4. Since I love the Homeworld franchise, I’m concerned on which side of the company Gearbox will be releasing these games. Will it be the side who released Borderlands, or the side that gave us Aliens and Duke Nukem Forever. I’m hoping Gearbox doesn’t screw this up

    1. Welcome to the comments JOreilly, and I can’t blame you at all for your concerns.

  5. Well, I’d like to assume they’re going to just straight-up port the original mission scripting and such, so hopefully they can’t screw it up.

Chime In!
