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.
