Homeworld Remastered Collection Set For February 25th

Gearbox Software announced February 25th as the release date for Homeworld Remastered Collection, along with multiplayer beta access.

It looks like Gearbox Software is looking to lift the curtain on the resurrected Homeworld franchise. Recently announced at PAX South, you can expect to get your hands on it starting February 25th on PC. As of now you can pre-purchase the game, currently on sale on Steam for $29.74. This will go up to $34.99 once the game is fully available.

The Homeworld Remastered Collection comes with a plethora of classic Homeworld games. Inside the package, you will get Homeworld and Homeworld 2 Remastered Editions, both games in their classic form, and access to Homeworld Remastered Steam Multiplayer Beta.

It will be interesting to see how Homeworld turns out. It's a 3D space RTS game, though as many know Gearbox as the developers of the first-person shooter series, Borderlands.

However, I have one question now that Gearbox owns and is releasing the Homeworld franchise. What happened to Homeworld: Cataclysm? Originally designed as an expansion, it had enough changes and content to be its own game, which I found an excellent addition to  the Homeworld series. Hopefully they haven't forgetten about it and will bring that installment back sometime in the future.

    Now this is a re-release I have been looking forward to for a long time. I have fond memories of spending two long nights on one level, because I had put it into my head to steal every enemy ship on the field (instead of just triggering the end of the level). In the end I got only half of them before they wisened up and moved away, but it was time well spent.

    Of course, there might be a dose of Rose Nostalgia Glasses be involved, but it's good to have this game back on the market. Let's see if the gameplay itself held up over the time.

    Woop! Hyped to finally be able to play Homeworld for more than 2 weeks! I owned the original, but only get a working copy 2 weeks before we changed PCs which could then no longer run Homeworld because the hardware wasn't compatible.
    I remember reading about this when it was a semi confirmed rumors, and they are not making the expansions at launch, they basically said they are treating them like they originally were, expansions (no basically known as DLC). So I expect to pay for any additional stuff, but who knows it might be free.
