Ever since Halo: Combat Evolved opened with the descent of the Pillar of Autumn toward the alien ring world known as Halo, the vehicles and spacecraft of Halo have featured heavily in the plot, setting and cinematic of Bungie's masterpiece series. While the games had followed the UNSCDF's fight from a ground-side perspective, there was always the back drop of war with the Covenant waged on two fronts; while the troops of both factions clashed on the ground, their monumental warships fought for supremacy in orbit. Kilometer long vessels battled their counterparts in titanic, decisive conflicts that often decided the fate of the planet below them.

We bring you the chance to experience Halo from space, in orbit and among the stars. In Homefront, you can command warships that stretch for kilometers and field dozens of weapons. Build nimble frigates which dip and weave in combat against their counterparts and strafe larger ships. Construct heavily specialized carriers able to dispatch dozens of fighters or drones, or explore more atypical, exotic weapons.

  • Play as either the slow, steady and economically minded UNSC, or the heavily armed and aggressive Covenant. Both sides will be asymmetric to each other, providing a varied experience.
  • Play on maps featuring key Halo locations and backdrops - Earth, Sanghelios, Reach and even the Halo rings themselves.
  • New UI features, new music, new voices and new ships - We intend to replace as much as we can from the vanilla Homeworld 2 experience to bring you a total conversion worthy of the Halo universe.
  • A tailored, well rounded game - Our vision isn't simply to bring Halo to Homeworld 2, but to make a game that is fun, balanced and within reason. The mod is based sometime before the fall of Reach, so will not include any new UNSC tech post Halo 3. Furthermore, there will be no playable flood or Forerunner faction.
  • Revival of multiplayer and competitive gameplay - While we do provide an excellent AI in skirmish, our goal is for Homefront to be played against other individuals. To this end, we will be supporting an online player community as much as we possibly can. This also means that we do not currently plan on a campaign, but will not rule one out in the future.
  • Ship designs and unit choices that are more dictated by gameplay than simply following canon for the sake of canon. HHF is Halo based, but if we feel like we can improve on something, we will try our best to do so in a manner that stays as close to established lore as possible.

26 comments by 880Zero on Jan 25th, 2015

The remastered collection adds a plethora of new features to the franchise, including normal map support, better ambient lighting and higher poly asset control. Sources from PAX South say its one of the best looking games they've ever seen! An official trailer was released by Gearbox, which can be seen here. The differences in quality is night and day.

Enjoy a few screenshots from the official site if you haven't seen them already. Homefront plans on supporting the remastered, which means the classic version will soon be nothing more than a legend. The pre-sale on Steam is 15% off so buy it before it rises in price. Not only does it come with the remastered versions, but the classic version and multiplayer supported by Steam as well!

To all having issues with the game crashing on startup. I looked through some discussions and managed to find this fix posted by Zenny1337 on Steam but re-worded by me to fit in the comments.

Go to - Alturl.com -. Download and unzip the file. Copy atioglxx.dll and paste it into C: /Program Files (x86)/Steam/Steamapps/Common /Homeworld/Homeworld2Classic/Bin/Release. If that doesn't work for you go into the Doom3BFGFix folder that you previously downloaded and pick either a 32 or 64 bit version of the atioglxx.dll file.

On the other hand. If your game is crashing when trying to start a skirmish then make sure you have selected your race before starting the game.
Hope this helped and if it didn't work then I can't help you, sorry.

More on here than Steam. Steam is just a platform, but development will be posted here.

Highest Rated (27 agree) 10/10

1.09 Release: As I said before, the HHF have done a superb job with the Ships, they are highly detailed (The Blast Windshield, the Marathon Hangar Animation, etc) and beautifuly textured (Seriously check the frigate textures are Awesome). New ships where included, the new model of the Prowler (Reminiscence of the Normandy from Mass Effect), the Marathon class cruiser, the Thanatos Destroyer, et al. Gameplay wise, it´s still a beta, however, playing with the UNSC has been so far smooth, and not buggy…
