Homeworld Remastered Collection includes updated graphics

Gearbox has begun sharing more details on its Homeworld remakes, stating that the scope of the project has gone above a simple re-release. The studio has also created a survey to gauge interest in proposed Collector's Editions.

"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," reads a note on the Gearbox blog. The full list of upgrades at the official site includes high-res textures and models, support for resolutions up to 4K, remastered audio, and a combination of multiplayer modes from both games. It also includes the original versions so you can play them if you'd like.

A survey at the bottom presents two collector's editions options. Both would include the usual tchotchkes like an art book, key chain, and DLC, but the two differ on how they present a Mothership replica. One is 6" die-cast metal Mothership that would make the CE cost $75, while the other is a 12" resin version with LED lights that would drive the cost up to $100.

Gearbox won the bid for Homeworld in the THQ bankruptcy auction. In addition to the remastered versions, the studio is planning another game in the series.
