An 3D open source space flight simulator
A modification of the Vega Strike 3D open source space flight simulator that attempts to improve upon the experience and bring the spirit of the original Privateer game by Origin to today`s computers. It is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux computers.
Privateer Remake has spawned two main offshoots (these also use the Vega Strike engine): Privateer Gemini Gold --- forgoes some of the additional missions and content in Privateer Remake in favor of gameplay that is more faithful to the original Privateer. Wing Commander Universe --- provides a framework for Wing Commander mods using Vega Strike and encompasses the Wing Commander game series covering the human Confederation-Kilrathi war. It is still undergoing development and includes ships from Wing Commander 1 to Wing Commander 3 and Privateer.
What are the system requirements for running the Privateer Remake?
The Remake runs on Windows, Linux and Mac OSX. Most common hardware purchased after 2000 should be able to run the game, 3d acceleration at the level of geForce2 or better is recommended.
