Shacknews - Alice O'Connor
Intriguing space sim-cum-RTS-cum-shooter-cum-trading sim-cum-RPG-cum-text adventure Space Rangers 2 is getting jazzed up in an expanded revamp, named Space Rangers HD: A War Apart. Announced today by publisher 1C Company, is slated for release on PC in Q4 2012.
A War Apart "remasters" Space Rangers 2: Rise of the Dominators and its expansion pack Reboot, and brings a new story too, revolving around space-pirates. Other shiny things include new spaceship upgrades, planetary battles, text quests, and hyperspace engagements, widescreen support, and updated to the graphics and interface.
Space Rangers is a genre-spanning curiosity, with turn-based space sections, planetside real-time strategy battles, text adventures, trading sim bits, and RPG-like character progression. SR2 reviewed well when it came out in 2006 but didn't garner too much attention, so a little polish should help it find more players.
