Vivendi Universal has announced that Homeworld 2 has gone gold, meaning that the game is complete and ready for release. The sequel to Relic's innovative 1999 3D real-time strategy game, Homeworld 2 puts players in control of a powerful space armada. The game features a campaign that tells a new chapter in the Hiigaran saga, many interface and easy-of-use enhancements, and new types of space terrain, like dust and gas clouds, wispy nebulae, and ghostly derelict ships. The game's multiplayer has support for up to six players.
"Homeworld 2 takes our commitment to quality to the next level, by including a number of visual improvements, as well as refinements to the gameplay and user interface," said Dan Irish, executive producer at Relic. "We're excited to deliver the next chapter in the Homeworld saga, and are looking forward to seeing the fans' reactions to our improvements of the series."
Homeworld 2 is scheduled for release on September 16, and it has a suggested price of $49.99 and a Teen ESRB rating. For more details, check out our previous coverage of the game.
