I saw the news that there will be the Homeworld and Homeworld 2 in remastered edition coming to us soon. And that time arrived. This is the one of the remastered version that has been made with passion. With passion and with lot of addon value. You will received the Homeworld and Homeworld 2 in remastered version + the classic Homeworld and Homeworld 2. Plus there is a new combined and updated multiplayer on the Steam in Beta version now. That is a lot of stuff. All this below 40 usd on Steam for example. The first Homeworld was published in 1999, development was done by Relic entertainment. This game was rated pretty high and also was voted as a game of the year. And now 16 years (yes 16!!! for those who played the original Homeworld) it is coming back to us. From what I have seen, it is also rated pretty high – 9/10 or 4.5/5. And now we will have few world about what is this game about as some from the audience was not even in the plan of their parents and they are now 15-16 years old.
I played original Homeworld few years after it was released,when I was 15-16 years old. I can’t remember it exactly, but I played it all again few months ago and now it is time to share the experience with you as you have the unique opportunity to play it in remastered version with fantastic graphics. First of all let’s tell you that this game is the RTS – real-time strategy. It will be nothing ordinary, but this game is 3D. No, it does not mean that the textures and world is 3D. This strategy is played in space. And in space you are moving in 3 dimensions, aren’t you? In normal strategies you are moving in 2D even the terrain is modeled in 3D, aren’t you? So here is one more dimension and it is done so perfectly that you even do not know that you are commanding in one more dimension. That is the basic you need to know. There is also the strong story and here is it’s intro (original):
And here in HD (available also in 4k if you have right monitor, just switch the settings):
That is a pretty difference isn’t it? Anyway it says the same So you know how the story begins in the Homeworld. You play it to know more Exactly as I did. Because it is very nasty to find out that your home planet is not your home planet and you want to know where are you from and why are you here. In any case it took 100 years to advance so far to be able to build you own mother ship to seek you home. Gearbox did a great job on graphics and still it is the same good old Homeworld, that is 16 years old. And still the gameplay and atmosphere are excellent and that is what you can’t say about all the old games – that the same controls, gameplay and atmosphere will be even acceptable after so many years. You know what? I can remember few games that are. I would like to see System Shock 2 in remastered edition I am pretty sure it will be perfect. In any case Homeworld will not disappoint you in any aspect of the modern real-time strategy. And for the last video for you is the gameplay from the remastered edition:
Ok guys, you will not hear from me for couple of weeks as I am already downloading Remastered version and I do not know if there will be time left to come back before I will finish the campaign. So hear you soon and maybe find you in multiplayer!
