    LOAF found a really cool Privateer 2 article from the German magazine PC Player. It dates back to August 1995 during the early development phases of the game, and the feature includes some cool behind-the-scenes set photos from the game. Check out the nose art on that Kalrechi too! Although you might not be able to read the text, the pics are neat! And if any German WC fans wouldn't mind transcribing or summarizing the article, please hit the Comment link!

    This is a cool article. I wish I could read German!

    I especially like the WIP photos of the sets, but what stood out to me most was Oliver Reed listed in the cast list. I'm guessing he got replaced before shooting started? This is a detail I never recall having come across regarding P2...
