Description

Privateer 2: The Darkening is a follow-up to Wing Commander: Privateer. The player takes control of Ser Lev Arris, who is searching to regain his identity and memory. Like its predecessors, the game combines space combat simulation with exploration and trading. Along the way, the player can trade commodities, go on missions, attack strange mutants, rescue damsels in distress, meet weird characters, and visit unusual planets. It is possible to hire wingmen and cargo ships, as well as upgrade the current ship or buy new ones. Live-action movies advance the story.

Trivia

Origin also released a Deluxe Edition for Privateer 2, and it contained, besides all the regular edition items, a large-sized poster of the cover picture and a military-style badge (to sew on a jacket, i.e.). It is somewhat rare and sought after.
