As it had promised after picking up the acclaimed Homeworld franchise during publisher THQ's bankruptcy proceedings, Gearbox Software has detailed its plans to re-release the original sci-fi strategy games, revealing Homeworld: Remastered Collection:
Previously, we'd been referring to this effort as Homeworld HD but as work progressed it became clear that title didn't properly communicate the scope of the work. This is more than a simple re-release or up-res -- given the input we've received from fans, mod makers and series veterans, the result is full-fledged remastering of nearly all aspects alongside the archival Classic versions.
A new official website
describes more of the planned improvements and additional features, and invites fan feedback on the potential contents of a physical collector's edition:
The two proposed versions of the Collector's Edition each contain a different Mothership replica, and we want to know which one you prefer. Both versions would also contain other memorabilia such as an art book, game manual, key chain, and game codes. Items included are not finalized and may change. These will be a small run of very limited editions, and the price point is different for each version due to the crafting time and materials used.
