The English translation of Space Rangers HD: A War Apart, which is a remastering of Space Rangers 2: Ride of the Dominators and Space Rangers 2: Reboot, is complete and publisher 1C Company has announced that the game will be available on Steam October 17th.
The game remasters the Space Rangers 2 universe and adds a new story branch, upgrades, equipment, planetary battles and roughly doubles the game content. The game has also received a graphics overhaul for compatibility with modern operating systems, and the art was redone to support up to 1920x1200 resolution.
Space Rangers HD: A War Apart takes place in 3300AD. Our galaxy is invaded by the Dominators, combat robots that come under the influence of an alien technology. Players find themselves in a living, breathing world where they can engage in multiple activities: fight in space and hyperspace, trade, accomplish government missions, liberate planets from the Dominators in 3D RTS battles and complete text adventures leading to unique plot twists and rewards. The game ending is not set and players may find a victory of either side at the end - anybody can live the life of a pirate as well as that of a hero. All player actions affect what kind of place the Galaxy will be at the end
There will also be an upcoming DVD release (which will require Steam activation) in Europe. The country list and retail release dates will available soon.
