In July of 2001, General Iron Tusk overthrew the government of the Republic of Pigs, marking the beginning an era of expansionism and conquest as the General quickly turned his gaze and the war powers of the S.W.I.N.E. on the nation Carrotland, the home of the peaceful Rabbits. But this is ancient history, you say, what does this have to do with me almost two decades later? Assemble Entertainment and Kite games are teaming up to bring forward an HD remaster of the porcine saga for you to relive in this modern age of high definition! Behold! S.W.I.N.E. HD Remaster!
Your role? Choose a side, the vicious Hogs of War, or the idealistic bunnies and lead them to victory over their foes in this classic and amusing rendition of real-time-strategy. Unlike most RTS games, there are no buildings to construct or collection resources. Focus, instead, on strategical management of the battlefield and use earned strategy points to drive your development and expansion.
With a redesigned interface, enhanced textures, and extended graphics settings all restructured to a 16:9 aspect ration, a whole new level of immersive destruction and comedy can ensue! But hold on to your bacon, this enhanced version of the game also boasts a large number of bug fixes, extended zoom, improved unit ordering, and more to maximize your level of enjoyment. Don’t forget that both online multiplayer and classic LAN multiplayer are also available, so bring others over to your pigsty to join in the fun!
Other goodies include the original soundtrack, a developer documentary of the recreation, and previously unreleased concept art! S.W.I.N.E. HD Remaster is slated for release in Q2 of 2019 on Steam. For more information, be sure to check out the site: https://swinethegame.com/.
