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.

S.W.I.N.E. HD Remaster features numerous improvements and visual enhancements, such as an integrated language selection, a polished UI, and improved unit ordering for a smoother gameplay experience. The remastered version also features the original 2001 S.W.I.N.E. soundtrack, an artbook with previously unreleased concept art, and a developer documentary detailing the process behind the recreation of the beloved classic. Developer Kite Games have worked with fans to extensively modernize the game to bring big, beautiful bunny-blasting, pig-punching battles to PC. For more information, visit https://swinethegame.com.
