Privateer 2 Now Avaliable from GOG

Privateer 2

Privateer 2: The Darkening is now available for purchase from GOG. This is the first time the science fiction themed flight simulator has been distributed digitally, physical copies being long out of print.

The game has been entirely optimized for play on modern operating systems and comes free of DRM in keeping with GOG’s popular distribution policy. Bonus extras are also packaged with the game and include three manuals, a reference card, wallpaper and a strategy guide. The extras will be downloadable and permanently stored along with the game on user accounts once purchased.

GOG is also holding a special promotion celebrating the game’s addition to their catalog. Almost all the Wing Commander games can be purchased for 50% off their regular prices. The only exception to this is Wing Commander: Academy. That game is being sold at a 20% discount instead. The promotion will end Saturday, Sept. 21.

Published in 1996 by Electronic Arts and developed by Origin Systems, Privateer 2: The Darkening is a followup to the groundbreaking Wing Commander: Privateer. Gamers will play as Ser Lev Arris, an amnesiac seeking to solve the mystery of who he is and struggling against those who wish him dead for reasons unknown to him.

Players control the unlucky character as he traverses across the universe. Players can trade, fight, explore, smuggle and hunt bounties in order to survive in the hostile Tri-System. Players can choose to complete the main story or play through one of many subplot missions within a free-roaming world with many planets, enemies and opportunities.

The game’s intricate story is told mainly through FMV sequences starring a cast of well-known actors that includes Clive Owen, David Warner, Christopher Walken and John Hurt. The scenes are the game’s most distinguishing and recognizable aspects.
