Nice.
You should make sure you install a mod called "Players Patch" as it fixes a few bugs the games campaign has in HW1 that a remenants of the conversion to HW2 styled engine. You can find it as one of the top rated Workshop mods. Simply subscribe and you are good to go.

Thanks, the first thing I did was check for essential mods or fixes (any game I do this now tbh). From what I saw the first game had issues moving to the new engine and broke either formations or abilities. I didn't go deeper than installing that mod, so if you know of any others, let me know.

Nothing else. I think you just need to remember to use the "mod" section in the launcher, to select the HW campaign you'll be playing and also move the mod to the active column so the game uses it when you start.

I've been meaning to play through the remastered games before HW3 and I knew about the formation/ballistic issues in HW1 but didn't know about the bugfix mod so thanks for that!

Notice how the trailer only shows the EGS logo. But that was to be expected from shitty Randy. 🙄

BBI uploaded a 4k version of the trailer with Steam + EGS in there. Not really sure why they did it that way:
From Gearbox community manager:

Homeworld 3 will not be Epic exclusive. It will be available on Steam on the game's release day.

Regarding the speculations that started this topic, it was an error on our end, that version of the trailer is intended for Epic's storefront, not YouTube. Hence why Steam isn't mentioned in that version. Apologies for the misunderstanding!
