Homeworld Remastered Collection Launching February 25th

At PAX South, Gearbox Software offered a glimpse of Homeworld Remastered Collection, the HD remastering of the strategy series. The Texas-based developer also announced that the game will be released for PC on February 25th with pre-orders open now on Steam for $29.74, a 15% pre-order discount from the regular price of $34.99.

Homeworld Remastered Collection updates and introduces the space strategy games to modern audiences. The collection includes Homeworld and Homeworld 2, remastered by Gearbox in cooperation with members of the original development team and members of the series’ fan community. As a free bonus, this collection also includes the original versions of Homeworld and Homeworld 2 with compatibility updates, preserving the purest form of the original releases.

Gamers who purchase Homeworld Remastered Collection will also receive access to the Homeworld Remastered Steam Multiplayer Beta, which kicks off alongside Homeworld Remastered Collection on February 25th. Competitive multiplayer modes for Homeworld and Homeworld 2 have been joined to offer players access to races, maps and game modes from both games in one integrated multiplayer experience. This beta combines code from over 15 years ago with newly-written changes, and will be shaped by fan feedback as development progresses.

In addition to re-releasing Homeworld and Homeworld 2 in both Classic and Remastered form, Gearbox Software has paired with Blackbird Interactive – a studio founded by Homeworld veterans Rob Cunningham and Aaron Kambeitz – to create an all-new entry in the Homeworld series for PC. Titled “Homeworld Shipbreakers,” the upcoming strategy game takes place before the events of the first Homeworld and serves as a prequel to the series. More information on Shipbreakers will be announced as development progresses.
