Space Rangers HD Next Week

1C Company announces a release date for Space Rangers HD: A War Apart, saying the space combat overhaul will launch worldwide on Steam on October 17th. Here's the pitch:

Space Rangers HD: A War Apart remasters and enhances the world of the cult Space Rangers 2. The game was developed by the SNK-Games team in close cooperation with fans of the series. New story branch, upgrades, equipment, planetary battles and famous text adventures expand the boundaries of the already lush universe of the game in every direction, roughly doubling the game content.

The game has also received a major technical overhaul to for seamless compatibility with modern OSes. Game art was reworked to support display resolutions of up to 19201200 and planetary battles employ modern render technologies.

Played Space Rangers 2 and hated it. It fits in this weird niche that I can't stand. It feels like Sid Meier's pirates.

Yeah, I got it at the original release and just didn't know what to make of it...Is it a 4x, an RTS, a turn-based strategy, an RPG...WHAT?! I played it for a while but the blending of all these different (and seemingly unmixable) genres kinda left me cold and confused...

Yeeesssss! I LOVED this game. It was far from perfect but it had such a unique blend of genres that was addictive as hell once you got past the initial learning curve. I wish they made a Space Rangers 3 instead of a remake but I'll take what I can get.

Would consider this if it was ported to the iPad.

Buy the Space Rangers 2 (Came out 7 years ago) Then use the cheats for anywhere you are stuck.

I could have sworn they released an updated version like a year or so ago? With more missions, more adventures, etc.

Space Rangers 2: reboot was released a few years ago.

Okay, I guess I'm confused with that one then. That seems to be the one I have on Steam. So this is a remake of the reboot.

I remember playing SR2 years ago and I wasn't sucked in to it. Will have to try this again.

Space Rangers 2 is a sequel to the first; it surpassed the original but the first still has its charm. SR2 Reboot added all that stuff to the sequel. To my knowledge there has never been an update to the original prior to this one.

Hoping they give a rebate to people already owning the DVD and Steam versions. It's a great game, but I'm not paying full price a third time for what I can mostly achieve with a resolution patch.

Anyway, cool news. I've always really enjoyed playing it, though the planetary battles always gave me fits and I just skipped those.

I was loath to try this since it was so unpolished at release. Heard great things though, so Im definitely interested.
