Assemble Entertainment announced that S.W.I.N.E. HD Remaster officially launches on the PC this May 23. A gameplay trailer was released Wednesday, which is interesting as April 17 is the same date of the ill-fated Bay of Pigs invasion.

S.W.I.N.E., which stands for Strategic Warfare In a Nifty Environment, is a real-time tactics video game originally released in 2001. Players can choose to play the game as pigs or rabbits. The game focuses mainly on real-time tactics, which mean that there is no need to construct buildings or gather resources. Players are given what are called Strategic Points, which can be used to buy new units or even trigger special abilities.

S.W.I.N.E. begins with General Iron Tusk overthrowing the Republic of Pigs. After taking control, the General turns his sights on Carrotland and its citizens, the Rabbits.

The game is divided into two campaigns. Beginners can choose to play the rabbit campaign, which focuses on the General’s initial attack on Carrotland and the rabbits’ attempts to block the army’s supply lines. For more experienced players, the pig campaign offers greater difficulty and deals with the General’s fight against the rebels of New Porkshire as well as the initial attack on Carrotland.

For the upcoming S.W.I.N.E HD Remaster, new features include:
