S.W.I.N.E. HD Remaster

The classic real-time strategy title, S.W.I.N.E., is getting an HD remaster for the PC. The new release is now appropriately called S.W.I.N.E. HD Remaster, and is targeting a release this Spring.

The original game was released back in 2001 by StormRegion. The HD Remaster is being worked on by Kite Games, the same team behind Sudden Strike 4. If you desire, you can already add the game to your Steam wishlist.

True to most modern HD remasters, this release will feature 16:9 support, better textures, anti-aliasing support, v-sync, screen selection, and a full-screen mode. The team is also tackling a number of bugs that were never addressed in the original release of the game, plus adding in a better zoom, better unit ordering, and more.

For fans of the original, you may be happy to hear that multiplayer, both online and via LAN, is also making a return in S.W.I.N.E. HD Remaster.

On July 26, the Republic of the Pigs was overthrown by General Iron Tusk. After dealing with the remaining Republican loyalist forces in his territory, Tusk turned his attention to the neighboring nation of Carrotland, home of the Rabbits. The Rabbits worked out their strategy, too; and now the two species need to find a capable officer who can lead their operations.

This funny strategy war game, which was first released in 2001, focuses on the strategic aspect of the battle. You don’t have to construct buildings or collect resources. Instead, you just need to capitalize on the strategy points and use them to expand and develop your animal army.
