Homeworld Remastered Collection flies onto the Mac

The Homeworld Remastered Collection, which includes updated versions of classic space strategy games Homeworld and Homeworld 2, has arrived on the Mac. The collection was developed by Gearbox Software and ported to the Mac by Aspyr.

The collection's primary feature is the inclusion of completely remastered editions of Homeworld and Homeworld 2, both rebuilt in a new Homeworld 2 engine. However, there's something for the purists here as well, as both games are available in their original forms, recompiled for more modern computers and updated with compatibility fixes. Unlike the PC version, the Homeworld Remastered Collection for Mac does not contain multiplayer or mod support.

To run the Homeworld Remastered Collection, you'll need a Mac running OS X Maverics or higher, a 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor or better, 4GB of RAM, and at least 512MB of VRAM from your video card. The Mac version of the collection is currently only avaialble through the Mac App Store, though Aspyr says that it will eventually come to Steam as well.

  • No Cataclysm, so who cares...
  • Awesome - another 15 year old game now available! Mac is certainly the place to be for gaming :)
  • While I do agree with the irony, to be fair, the remastered version of Homeworld just came out this year.
  • to be fair I want to buy it - on PC in my case but still... fond memories of that game :)
  • Is mac still doesn't have right-click? I just wonder how game works in a system that without right-click. Just curious Posted from my Samsung Galaxy S6
  • the Apple “magic mouse” can right click, and trackpads can be configured for two-fingered trackpad “right clicks”
  • Worth noting that this game runs natively at retina resolutions, I believe that was even the impetus for the entire re-release.
