    Short summary describing this game.

    Privateer 2: The Darkening last edited by Galamoth on 05/23/22 08:30AM View full history

    Privateer 2 is a sequel to the original Privateer in name only. No connection to Privateer 1 or the Wing Commander universe exists in the game.


    The game begins with a cargo ship named "Canera" coming under attack and crashing into the Mendra City on planet Crius. The only survivor is the game's protagonist, a man named Lev Arris and with no memory of who he is and no record of his existence prior to two weeks before the crash. The man must take on the life of a privateer while he tries to find out about his past.


    The player is free to roam around the universe between plot missions. Earning money by taking on missions and transporting goods between planets. The player does not need to always journey alone, he/she can hire ships for the protection and increased cargo space.

    Some found the game's interfaces for trading to be cumbersome and annoying. While the game universe map is in 3D, instead of the normal 2D.
