Homeworld Remastered warps in with a release date, looks fabulous

If you're an RTS fan and you've not heard of Homeworld, you're doing something very, very wrong. If you've not played it... well, given that the last game came out in 2003 that might be excusable - but not for much longer!

After acquiring the rights to the series from the still-smoking ashes of THQ, Gearbox have been hard at work on completely remaking Homeworld and Homeworld 2.
They're indisputably two of the greatest RTS games ever made, so it seems reasonable that people might get a little excited when they learn that the 'Homeworld Remastered Collection' will be hitting Steam on February 25th.
Yes, that's less than a month away. Yes, you may go and change your underwear. We'll wait.

All good? Here are some more details:

Homeworld Remastered Collection updates and introduces the landmark space strategy games to modern audiences. The collection includes Homeworld and Homeworld 2, painstakingly remastered by Gearbox in cooperation with key members of the original development team and members of the seriesí passionate fan community.

As a free bonus, this collection also includes the original versions of Homeworld and Homeworld 2 with compatibility updates, preserving the purest form of the original releases.

Anyone who purchases Homeworld Remastered Collection will also receive free access to the Homeworld Remastered Steam Multiplayer Beta when the collection releases on February 25, 2015.
