MinMax Games will be taking to the stars a second time soon; the company recently announced Space Pirates and Zombies 2, a sequel to their 2012 game, Space Pirates and Zombies. Despite the name, Space Pirates and Zombies 2 is less about swashbuckling swordsmen fighting the flesh-hungry undead and more about capturing enemy ships, blowing them apart, and tractor beaming their broken bits to attach to your ship. We're okay with this.

The sequel will feature several improvements over its forefather, including a 3D environment, AI ship captains that can do everything the player can, and time-based story events. The game will also have a multiplayer arena and local co-op modes. Because what's a pirate/zombie without their crew/horde?

MinMax did not give an expected release window with the announcement.
