We couldn’t be happier to finally launch this labor of love, which we’ve been hard at work on ever since the acquisition of Homeworld back in 2013.
"The genesis behind Homeworld was that of an epic journey," said Alex Garden, founder and former CEO of Relic Entertainment. “I could never have imagined, over 15 years later, that the journey would be so lovingly remastered by a passionate team that cares as much about that story as we do. The idea that people will be able to play through Homeworld again with technology, effects and detail we could only dream of at the time -- I can't wait."
“It’s an absolute honor to make a franchise as important as Homeworld accessible to modern audiences,” said Brian Martel, Chief Creative Officer at Gearbox Software. “I couldn’t be prouder of the effort that has gone into presenting Homeworld as the experience it was always meant to be, not only as a co-owner of Gearbox but as a longtime fan of the series.”

We’re just days away from the launch of Homeworld Remastered Collection! Before you hit hyperspace, here’s a bit of insight into what you can expect, whether you’re a veteran commander or a novice member of the fleet.
Homeworld 1 was originally released in 1999, and Homeworld 2 followed a few years later in 2003 along with a new engine that added new features and functionality. For Remastered, we wanted to expand on that as it was the most technically advanced engine between the two games. But for Homeworld 1, that meant we needed to bring it into the HW2 engine. That meant a big challenge: creating a unified engine for Homeworld 1 and 2. Unifying the codebase enabled us to remaster both games at the same time, which provides a consistent gameplay experience between the two games, including a new user interface. The new user interface will allow for modern RTS advances, aligning it more with the original intent that wasn’t possible using the tools at the time. As a result, key commands old school Homeworld players may have been familiar with won’t work in Homeworld Remastered. As with all of the changes in Homeworld Remastered, this was done with the guidance of the original creators. Original mechanics have been preserved in the Classic versions included in Remastered Collection.
Watch the video above to learn more about the critically acclaimed story of Homeworld 2 in this trailer from the Homeworld Remastered Collection that highlights the game's updated audio, visuals, and effects!
