Mass Effect Reborn Mod Jumps Into Homeworld 2

Mass Effect, you know, in Homeworld

At the end of Mass Effect 3, thousands of ships from all across known space come together to liberate Earth and smash the Reapers. Then a pretty cutscene plays, and we passively watch the ensuing cool space battle. But oh, what if you gathered and commanded the fleet, and they were following your strategy? What if the slog across the Milky Way were a bit more Homeworld-ian? Turns out I didn't write those sentences as idle musings, that there is actually a purpose to this post.

See, that's basically the idea behind Mass Effect Reborn, a Homeworld 2 mod where you get to control that Alliance fleet. The first version is out now, if you fancy giving it a bash.

Mass Effect Reborn is made by Phoenix Interactive, the folks also behind Homeworld 2's Stargate Space Conflict mod. Though this is version 1.0, Phoenix consider it to be a "pre-beta" release and plan to follow it up with the actual full version at the end of the month. They're looking to include more speech and dialogue, better AI, research trees, and other odds and ends.

It does cheekily use a few of Mass Effect's models and textures, so don't be entirely surprised if EA Foxes the mod. Here, have a gander:
