Homeworld HD Becomes Homeworld: Remastered Edition

Gearbox Software announces Homeworld: Remastered Edition is the new title for the project previously known as Homeworld HD. A new Homeworld Remastered Edition website is home to the game, and it includes a poll to vote on which Collector's Edition of the space strategy remake is more desirable. Here's the latest on the game to explain the name change:

Crafted with the assistance and guidance of the original creators as well as the help of a passionate fan community, Homeworld Remastered Collection introduces Relic's acclaimed space strategy games Homeworld and Homeworld 2 to modern players and operating systems using the latest advances in graphics rendering technology. Homeworld Remastered Collection includes updated high-res textures and models, new graphical effects, and support for HD, UHD, and 4K resolutions. Homeworld’s original audio and video artists have also recreated cinematic scenes in beautiful high fidelity.

Homeworld Remastered Collection uses Homeworld and Homeworld 2’s original source audio to create a stunning new mix of effects and music. On top of that, multiplayer for both games has been combined into one centralized mode that will allow you to interact with other players like never before. This collection also includes archival versions of Homeworld Classic and Homeworld 2 Classic, preserving the purest form of the original releases with compatibility for modern operating systems.

I'm all for a Homeworld remake. Aside from improved graphics and compatibility, I just want two things:

- Some tweaks to the game balance, so I don't end up losing the game because I didn't gather enough resources six or seven missions back. This was an annoying problem with the original (less so in Cataclysm and Homeworld 2)

- A return of the first-person view introduced in Cataclysm. I loved attaching it to one of the fighters and watching them dogfight; next best thing to actually flying the ship itself. It was sadly absent from Homeworld 2.

To be fair the one Gearbox game that I did enjoy was Opposing Force. That Gearbox is no longer.

Ugh, Gearbox... just stop it. Stick to the one thing you are good at. Borderlands.

Instabuy. Even if it was labeled "The Pitchford Edition" it would still be an instabuy.

I want the 12" LED lit CE. That would be cool.

Yeah, that's all they have to do, update the graphics and audio and don't touch anything else. I fear they will not be able to resist "fixing" some things anyway.

If they don't mess with the formula and simply give us the exact same game but with current GFX capabilities, color me interested.

I'm surprised they didn't name it The Pitchford Edition.

I really hope they don't screw this up, but you know stuff like this never goes right.
