Oh dear. Accessible is usually code for 'dumbed down'. I wonder if hiigaran will be happy that more Homeworld games will be made, or if he'll be too bothered about how they might turn out to be pleased?

i think 'accessible' just means that it will be easier to buy. i dont think they are going to redesign the already made games. makes no sense to try and reinvent the wheel.

Oh, right. I misread the title, I thought they were making new games. My mistake.

Might try it out if it's cheap enough. Though I don't like RTS games, generally speaking.

My guess is that "accessible" likely means re-releases on modern platforms (as hiigaran said) or remastered versions.

just waiting on an announcement saying that another great RTS has been ruined by turning it into a free to play MMORTS and that units can only be purchased with micro transactions.

they do that, and theres definitely no way in hell i would be buying a HW3, even with my fanatical devotion to the series. i see it as a two faction thing now. the original developers were sierra and relic, and now gearbox is the new owner. ill always be loyal to the original developers, because they got it right. im going to remain skeptical with these new guys.

I've never had the chance to play these games but have only heard good things. Wouldn't mind a decently priced remastered version on Steam or something to give it a go.

Homeworld is one of my favorite games of all time. I still remember playing this for the first time (during final exam time) and having my mind blown. Needless to say I didn't do much studying that time as I should have.
It's good to hear that this terrific franchise will survive.
