After acquiring the Homeworld franchise in 2013, Gearbox set out to remake the cult space RTS series. Now, the fruit of the studio's labors is almost ripe for the plucking. Gearbox has announced that Homeworld Remastered Collection will be out on February 25. There's a new teaser trailer to go with the announcement, too:
The teaser's a little light on actual gameplay, but the few glimpses that are there look pretty swanky. While I never got around the playing the original Homeworld series myself, I did watch friends partake on numerous occasions, and the new eye candy is making those memories creep back in.
Mmm. Sweet, sweet nostalgia.
Homeworld Remastered Collection is already up for pre-order on Steam. The game is 15% off, or $29.74, if you make your puchase by February 24—pretty generous, considering there's two games worth of content in there. According to the system requirements on the Steam page, Gearbox recommends a 2.3GHz quad-core processor, a Radeon HD 5850 or GeForce GTX 560 graphics card, 4GB of RAM, and 20GB of free storage space to run this thing.
