Gearbox Software revealed the bonus that will be included in the collector's editions version of Homeworld Remastered, the developers's high-definition update of Relic Entertainment's Homeworld and Homeworld 2. It's a USB-powered, light up ship from the Homeworld games.

Steve Gibson of Gearbox announced the ship's inclusion in the Homeworld Remastered collector's edition at the developer's panel at PAX East today, saying that Gearbox is spending "an irresponsible amount" on the ship. Gibson said they expect the collector's edition of the game to be in limited supply and that they hope to break even on the expensive bonus item.

Gearbox polled Homeworld fans on what they wanted to see in the collector's edition later last year, feedback which led to the decision to include the 12-inch tall ship.

Homeworld Remastered will include both Homeworld and Homeworld 2 with a number of updates, including new ship models and high-res textures. The remastered game will support up to 4K resolution, Gearbox says. Homeworld Remastered is slated for release through Steam sometime this fall.
