Become a Tri-System Confederation legend!

Privateer 2: The Darkening, an epic-scaled space trade and combat sim from the cult-classic Wing Commander series, with full motion video sequences starring Christopher Walken, John Hurt, and Clive Owen, is available on, for only $5.99. At the same time, we offer you a chance to expand your collection of Wing Commander titles, with our special 48-hour [url= ]Wing Commander Series Promo[/url]!

This was not a pleasant reality to wake up to. They told you you've survived a crash which totaled your spacecraft. You can't really remember anything. You're not even quite sure if you belong in the Tri-System. All you have, is the feeling that this isn't the first time you've bounced back from falling to the bottom. You still have just enough currency to afford some flying rust-bucket. It'll do. As long as you have wings, you'll manage, somehow. There always are business opportunities for skilled pilots--dirty jobs that bring good money. A few runs and you'll be able to afford some upgrades, or maybe even a better ship. You'll gain recognition. Fame, even. Somehow, it feels like this all isn't happening for the first time. If only you could recall what dangers await bold pilots in this corner of Universe...

Privateer 2: The Darkening isn't a direct sequel to Wing Commander: Privateer, but rather a completely different adventure in a remote part of the universe governed by the Tri-System Confederation. In fact, there are some hints that both games take place in roughly the same time period, but the different settings give each of them its unique feeling. Originally released in 1996, the game offers solid open-ended space trade and combat mechanics, multitude of original missions to take on, an involving story, and full motion video cut-scenes featuring a cast of a-grade actors. If you long for the sensation of piloting your own star ship and living the space-privateer life on your own terms, make sure not to miss this classic title!

Set your helm for the Tri-System and experience a space adventure of yet another lifetime in Privateer 2: The Darkening, for only $5.99 on! Don't forget about the [url= ]Wing Commander Series Promo[/url], as well, because it lasts only until Saturday, September 21, at 9:59AM GMT.
No, I will not be licking that box.
Hell, yes! Instabuy for sure. And we're one step closer to Prophecy. :) Although I kinda suspect that we're gonna see Armada first, with Prophecy being the big conclusion to WIng Commander on GOG.

heh, I notice I just got an email saying "My wish has been granted" for this game
I'm looking forward to hearing Dani Behr telling me "Great shot Lev" every time I hit something. I heard that phrase almost as many times as the iconic "Updated my Journal".
Thanks GOG, I have very good memories of this one and for me it's a instant purchase!
hunvagy: The original release was a DOS game. Darkening Gold is the Win98 version of Privateer 2.

Edit: seems it wasn't called gold, but Deluxe.
JudasIscariot: Ours is the DOS version :)
Awesome!!! Easy Mac usage for everyone!!!!
Did they actually fix the game so that the AI isn't completely stupid?
Very glad to see this. Bring on Wing Commander Prophecy next! :D
Wishted till I see the weekend promo. :D
Wishlisted for now.
Subtle jab at the GOG review system?

Classic. Haven't played it yet.
WooHoo... Finally. Been waiting for this one since you guys started putting up the WC series. This was one of my favorite space sims back in the day. Time to go shopping.
Fantastic! I've been waiting for this one. Instabuy!
Those memories of having your kills stolen by your (Monolith) transport ship. Good times.
