2 Goes Gold
is the press release from Vivendi Universal Games announcing
that Homeworld 2 is gold, and that the space-based RTS sequel is expected to ship
to stores in North America on September 16. Here's the deal:
the sequel to one of 1999's highly acclaimed RTS games, returns players to the
helm of the most powerful space armada in the universe as they battle to keep
their home. The highly-anticipated follow up title includes multiplayer
competition for up to five other players, in addition to an engrossing single
player saga, and features startling space effects like dust gas clouds, wispy
nebulae, and ghostly derelict hulks of space ships rendered with spectacular
Hollywood-style special effects.
"Homeworld 2 takes our commitment to quality to the next level, by
including a number of visual improvements, as well as refinements to the
gameplay and user-interface," said Dan Irish, Executive Producer of
Homeworld 2. "We're excited to deliver the next chapter in the Homeworld
saga, and are looking forward to seeing the fans' reactions to our improvements
of the series."
