Homeworld is one of those classic franchises which found a way to excel in narrative before it became a standard in the video game industry. Its two real-time strategy games managed to leave an impact on players not just because their gorgeous space battles were massive in scope, but also because great storytelling gave them more of an emotional impact.
A new trailer for Gearbox’s Homeworld Remastered Collection does a great job getting veterans excited to dive back in and introducing newcomers to everything these classics have to offer. If you weren’t around for the first time these games were released, you might not walk away from this trailer with the same impressions. Its story was out of this world at the time, but by today’s standards, it’s rather normal.
Don’t worry about that, and just let the excellent visuals and voice work win you over. Homeworld is a lost treasure of the gaming world, and it’s so nice to see it get a second chance through digital distribution.
The Homeworld Remastered Collection will be released on PC on Feb. 25.
