Today, Assemble Entertainment — best known for the infamous point-and-click adventure Leisure Suit Larry - Wet Dreams Don’t Dry — has announced a May 23, 2019 release date for the military-themed porcine RTS game S.W.I.N.E. HD Remaster

Just in time for the anniversary of the Bay of Pigs invasion, publisher Assemble Entertainment and developer Kite Games have released a brand-new gameplay trailer, where players will be taken back to the good old days of merciless war between pigs and rabbits! 

In the very first gameplay trailer of S.W.I.N.E. HD Remaster, Assemble Entertainment spotlights the most impressive scenes from the dirtiest of all dirty wars. You could call this one a bloodbath … or a mudbath — either one works!

More about 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. 

Key features of S.W.I.N.E HD Remaster include:

  • Remastered graphics: S.W.I.N.E HD Remaster boasts a redesigned interface adjusted to 16:9 aspect ratio, along with detailed unit texture. Extended graphics settings are available: anti-aliasing, v-sync, screen selection, and full-screen mode.

     

  • Improved game experience: Tons of bug fixes, extended zoom, improved unit ordering, and plenty of other updates bring the game into the modern age.

     

  • Multiplayer is back: Travel back to the good old days with your friends and play this unique landmark of a game either online or on LAN.
