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: 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…

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,…

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…
