S.W.I.N.E. HD Remaster Launches May 23 for PC

Assemble Entertainment have announced the release date for S.W.I.N.E. HD Remaster.

The original S.W.I.N.E (Strategic Warfare In a Nifty Environment) was an RTS game released in 2001 for Windows PC, published by Ravensburger Interactive Media and developed by Hungarian developer StormRegion. This remaster is developed by Kite Games, with some of the original development team on board.

In S.W.I.N.E. HD Remaster, a nation of pigs have been overthrown by one of their own generals. Soon after, they invade the neighboring “Carrotland”, home of the rabbits. The player takes control of a small army seeking to push back the invading force. Resource gathering and base building was omitted. Instead, you earned points for completing missions which could be spent to unlock new units and special abilities for them.

The remastered game also includes a soundtrack of the original game, digital art book with never-before-seen concept art, and a developer documentary.
