Homeworld Remastered Collection

Postby Keith » Tue Apr 14, 2015 6:15 pm

I enjoyed the original boxed version of "Homeworld" quite a bit. It engendered some aspects of citybuilding. One has to increase the size and number of types of ships in the fleet, develop new technology, and collect resources to power all of this by mining the asteroids they pass along the path of the fleet's journey. You must do your best to deliver the fleet to the new Homeworld to rebuild your civilization and you must protect the mothership at all costs.

The game is not all combat. There many periods where you must spend time repairing and building new ships and gather more resources from the nearby asteroids.

The game is played on a 3D playing field where ships can move in all directions including up and down.

If you have never seen or played "Homeworld" give the two video trailers on the Steam site a look.

The game is $34.99.


Experience the epic space strategy games that redefined the RTS genre. Control your fleet and build an armada across more than 30 single-player missions. Choose unit types, fleet formations and flight tactics for each strategic situation. Utilize advanced research to construct ships ranging from light fighters to huge carriers and everything in between.

The Homeworld games have been painstakingly re-mastered with key members of the original development team and taking critical influence and assistance from the passionate fan community. The Homeworld Remastered Collection introduces Relic's acclaimed space strategy games Homeworld and Homeworld 2 to modern players and operating systems using the newest sophisticated graphics rendering technology, plus a fully remastered score and new, high fidelity voice recordings by the original actors.

As a free bonus, this collection also includes original, non-remastered versions of Homeworld Classic and Homeworld 2 Classic, preserving the purest form of the original releases with compatibility for modern operating systems.

By purchasing Homeworld Remastered Collection, you’ll also receive free access to the Homeworld Remastered Steam Multiplayer Beta at the time of release. The competitive multiplayer modes for both Homeworld and Homeworld 2 have been combined into one centralized mode that will allow you access to content (races, maps and game modes) and improvements, features and technology from both games, allowing you to play unlimited competitive multiplayer space battles on an epic scale.

I've tried it and it looks great, but not my cup of tea. However, I recommend it :)
