Homeworld Remastered Launch Day & Reviews!

Posted in Forums, Gearbox, General, Homeworld, Homeworld 2 by on February 25th, 2015

Folks it has

been a long time coming and it is hard to believe that it is here. Homeworld has been resurrected from the Karos Graveyard and is launching today on Steam in 30 mins from the time of this post. Gearbox has seen fit to do not just the Homeworld, but the entire gaming community an amazing service by not remastering but restoring Homeworld to a level that many of us here could have only dreamed. I know that many of us here at Relicnews news would like to extend a very heartfelt thank you and our gratitude for the work they have put in to the HW:RC. The Steam preload is active now so you still have some time to unlock and play as soon as it releases. While you are waiting for the game to either download and/or unlock, feel free to check out some of the reviews that have been coming out for the Homeworld Remastered Collection. In addition, the Relicnews forum section for Homeworld Remastered is active and available for all to come and make themselves at home yet again. As the single largest Homeworld fansite STILL in existence today, we plan on keeping the legacy going for multiplayer discussion, modding and of course whatever else comes along with Homeworld. So stay a while and come join us.   Also while you are here, come join us over in our IRC channel and hang out with us Dolts. So load up your favorite IRC client and head over.

Homeworld: The Remastered Collection does a fantastic job of polishing up and reintroducing these formerly hard-to-experience classic real-time strategy games. Over the 15 years since it first came out, these exciting, large-scale space battles haven’t been matched, much less surpassed, and its outstanding atmosphere and story can teach modern game developers valuable lessons on how to make the most of simple animation, dramatic camera angles, and a largely classical score. With only a few missions and ideas that stand out as poor with the benefit of hindsight, it’s amazing how well Homeworld holds up as a single-player focused RTS, and I can recommend it as strongly today as we did in 1999  

LazyGamer: 8.5

And now, it’s finally here. After seventeen years, Homeworld fans have the opportunity to once again explore the original classic duo, reborn anew with flashy coats of paint. At least, they have the opportunity to do so without resorting to arcane pc magic to get it to work. Is it worth it? Here’s a spoiler: It totally is. If you’re a fan of the franchise, you’ll absolutely adore the remastered edition… …The huge amount of work that went into modernizing and reinterpreting the many visuals, from the ships to the wonderfully abstract nebulous backdrops feel like a massive love letter to both the original game, and to the fans who love it.

  CGMagonline: 9/10

The Homeworld collection is a fantastic and complex RTS that will challenge players with an almost intimidating amount of depth of choice. It tells a serious, engaging story, and has skirmish modes that will test both strategic thinking and the ability to think quickly under pressure. This is a very different beast from StarCraft which is a good thing, since not every RTS has to be based on that concept. For younger RTS fans, one of the greats of the genre has finally returned.

It could have gone one of two ways. Homeworld was either going to be snatched up by a AAA studio with their heart in the right place, or a money-loving team of re-releasers that are popping up more and more. Turns out it pretty much went both ways.

Gearbox, a company who made their name carrying on the success of titles on the behalf of their originator studios (Half-life, Tony Hawk, and Halo to name a few), have picked up the Homeworld IP. Recently though Gearbox have been producing their own original IP, Borderlands and have not-so-much continued, as put their own spin on other popular video game classics such as Aliens and Duke Nukem.

So what conclusion are we to draw when they pay what was probably mega-bucks for a dusty classic like Homeworld? Their statement gives us a hint:

assemble the purest form of the original acclaimed and beloved games, Homeworld and Homeworld 2, with the intent of making them accessible on today’s leading digital platforms.

So the originals are to be re-released. It’s hardly a surprise, and no doubt there were many other companies at the auction with that same intention. Though few will have been a company quite like Gearbox. With the recent success of Kickstart/restarts of a multitude of classic video games and HD re-releases of games like Age of Empire II this strategy is bound to be a success. But Gearbox don’t need a quick dime, they are a AAA developer and with this pickup comes a massive amount of fan excitement and expectation.

And Gearbox would positively be going backwards if they just

gave us Homeworld and Homeworld 2 and then left it at that. They’ll be sure to be preparing to make their mark on the series…

But then again Gearbox have never made an RTS before…
