Rebel Galaxy Outlaw


Launching eventually, on the Epic Games store first and then PS4 and Switch for around thirty bucks.

It’s like Wing Commander Privateer, with a bit more flair. And cussing.

Supports mouse+keyboard but @tbaldree recommends a gamepad so that’s what you should do.

Please direct all conversations about the Epic store to the dedicated Epic store thread so it doesn’t clutter up this one.

Rebel Galaxy

oh man, that’s just so right :D


So is this a real game? Or an April Fools dagger to Brian Rubin’s heart?


Well, we know that Travis and Double Damage are working on a Privateer type game (still TBA at some point). I think Travis just saw a perfect April Fool’s Day trolling chance and took it.

It’s clear based on the graphics and characters in the video (particularly the bartender at 1:04) that this is actual footage of Travis’ new game. Which is really exciting. I think the “Wing Commander Privateer”, “April 2017” and “Gemini Systems” are the trolling parts. That is unless Travis suddenly decided to leave Double Damage to start yet another company and roll out a new, completely unannounced and unmarketed game in less than a month. All of which I sincerely doubt.

I think the cool part here is that Travis is giving us a pretty good look at his new game, so I expect Brian will be excited by this. I know I am. It looks like fun.

EDIT: (Below is Travis’ portrait on his twitter site. It’s the same guy in the vid at 1:04)
EDIT2: And yeah, the fine print on the screen at 1:17, lol.


I’m not saying a thing.


No need Brian. @tbaldree we are on to you, you sneaky sneaky man. And if you want to prove our speculation wrong, well, you do have 30 days in April to do so ;)


I particularly like the thin, letterbox viewscreen in your ship. The only way of retaining that sweet 12 fps gameplay in the original. :)


Awesome! I loved Privateer, and I’m thrilled to see it updated! I was also glad to read it’s not a hardcore cockpit-sim, as my enthusiasm for these games far outstrips my skill.

If this is an April Fool’s joke, I will never forgive you. Seriously.


Would you forgive me if I told you we were going to try to supplant it completely instead, and literally rebuilt a large portion of Privateer as research? The footage here is hopefully a testament to a) how much love we have for the original and b) the lengths to which we will go to try to make something special.


Forgive you? Man if you were here I would hug you.

Don’t even ask what @BrianRubin would do…

Though given his cryptic reply I suspect you may already know :P


Tee hee.


You gave us Rebel Galaxy. You have my utmost trust. I’m sure others would agree.


Well, we’ll certainly forgive you if you let us help beta test it for you (hint, hint). Just kidding… I think…


I wanted more rebel galaxy …whine


It’s a well known fact that QT3 forum go-ers make incredible beta testers. The wealth of industry, QA, and general game knowledge that exists is too great a resource to pass up! I’m also pretty sure it has something to do with freedom, eagles, and apple pie.


Maybe not so much Eagles.


Create giant, stinking food dump in town -> wildlife moves in en masse to exploit it -> people complain and blame wildlife for their woes. Where’s a massive :eyeroll: gif when you need one?


Woah, woah. Easy dude. I love all birds. I didn’t write it, I just happened to post it. Peace?


When I saw this video, I was certain it was an April Fool’s joke. Guess I’m not the only one, since the Wikipedia page for Privateer hasn’t been updated.

While I played other Wing Commander games, as well as Freelancer, I never played Privateer.

Biggest question I have: is there mining?
