Homeworld Remastered Update 2.0 Blasts Off

Alec was jolly pleased with the Homeworld Remastered Collection [official site], revisiting Relic's spaceship real-time strategy classics after Gearbox spruced them up. Now they've even fancier, as the promised mega-patch has arrived with everything from improved fleet formations to proper ballistic weapons. The Collection has also now arrived on GOG, for those who prefer their games DRM-free, with a hefty discount t'boot.

Homeworld: Remastered Big Fixes and Tweaks Incoming

After a rather long drought, Homeworld: Remastered Collection [official site] will be getting a sizeable update that will introduce sweeping changes to fleet formations while also adding ballistics to projectile weapons. Oh, and bug fixes, lots of 'em. According to a report by Fists of Heaven, the update has been in the works for more than six months and is the core focus of a small…

Homeworld: Deserts Of Kharak Gets First DLC

Anyone still playing Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak [official site], our first new Homeworld game in a hundred million years? It may have ditched the spaceships, but it did well at retaining the langorous pace and titanic scale. I had a good time, but I can't pretend I've been back to it since release. Question is whether the first round of DLC is likely to pull…

Homeworld: Deserts Of Kharak review

Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak [official site] is a prequel to the legendary Homeworld space real-time strategy games, but this time - heresy! - set on land, as the Kushan race battle angry clans to reclaim ancient technologies found on the sandy planet they currently call home. While some of its developers (including studio boss and former Relic art lead Rob Cunningham) worked on the original…

Surprise Homeworld Prequel Attack!

Oh, blimey. Suddenly there's a new Homeworld game right around the corner. Confusingly it's not set in space, but it's definitely following the same visual design cues nonetheless. It's also now a prequel to the events of the spaceship RTSes we know and love, and is developed by Blackbird Interactive, an outfit founded by various veterans of said original spaceship RTSes. I.e. space or not,…

Homeworld Remastered Collection review

Disclaimer: I played Relic's space strategy game Homeworld [official site] when it first released (because of course I did), but unlike many of its fans I didn’t continue to live and breathe it, so I am simply not your guy to get into the fine detail of how the new version does or doesn’t differ from the original. I’m sure other places and even our…

Gearbox On Remastering Homeworld, Mods & Multiplayer

Just before I got hold of some early code for Gearbox's upcoming remastering of unbelievably beloved space RTS Homeworld (which I made some stupidly oversized and stupidly pretty screenshots and video of yesterday), I had a chat with the studio's Chief Creative Officer Brian Martell, plus Community Manager Chris Faylor about the new version of Relic's game. Why do this rather than make their own…

See Homeworld Remastered At 5K Resolution

They should have sent - hey, no, don't interrupt me with your obvious, tired pop culture quote. I was going to say they should have sent someone with a triple SLI setup and a 4K monitor. Instead they sent me, with a single graphics card and a 1440p monitor. Even so, I was able to get a preview build of the Homeworld Collection Remastered [official…

A Beautiful Relic: 37 Mins of Homeworld Remastered

It's only three weeks until we can get lost in space again ourselves, but in the meantime your eyeballs will thank for pointing them at this big chunk of 1080p footage from Gearbox's upcoming remastering of cult classic spaceship RTS Homeworld. Whereas other recent remasterings - Grim Fandango and Indigo Prophecy - focused on making the game less archaic, this looks like it's really going…

Homeworld Bound: Remastered Collection In February

February 25th. That's it. That's the day when Gearbox will release the Homeworld Remastered Collection with its two made-over, fancied-up re-releases of Relic's wonderful spaceborne real-time strategy games. After a long but comfortable silence, Gearbox this weekend announced a release date and, gosh oh golly, a trailer with a look at its new look. It is pretty. I'd say it looks as good as I…

Ancient Relics: Homeworld HD Now Homeworld Remastered

We learned last year that Gearbox were planning to re-release the enormously loved Homeworld games. Having plucked the license from the THQ jumble sale, apparently because their Chief Creative Officer Brian Martel has maximum love for the series, they made clear their intentions to release an HD version of the first two games. They're upping their terminology now, from "HD" to "Remastered".

Adagio: Gearbox Re-releasing Homeworlds

Polygon are reporting that Gearbox have announced their intention to release HD versions of Homeworld 1 & 2 for PC. We already knew this was a possibility, of course, with their having acquired the license during the IP stripping of THQ earlier this year. No date on in yet, but my bet is early in 2014, to coincide with the next International Homeworld Day. That's…
