Homeworld Remastered Collector’s Edition

logo_hwIn addition to Homeworld: Shipbreakers, Gearbox is releasing HD updated versions of Homeworld and Homeworld 2.   These will be full updates.  From the site:

Crafted with the assistance and guidance of the original creators as well as the help of a passionate fan community, Homeworld Remastered Collection introduces Relic’s acclaimed space strategy games Homeworld and Homeworld 2 to modern players and operating systems using modern advances in graphics rendering technology. 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 beautiful 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.

Pretty cool.  Even better since they’re offering Collector’s Editions that will include a Mothership model, manuals and an art book.  They want you to choose which Mothership model you’d prefer.  I think I’m leaning towards the lighted version despite the higher price point.  Did I mention how much I love the Homeworld series?  I do.  Also, the Homeworld manual was one of the great game manuals of all time.
