Wing Commander Saga

Recommended Posts

Not sure how many WC fans are around here but this is a project I'm helping with that looks to be very good when it's done. It's based off the Freespace 2 engine and will be completely free.

It will be a while until it is finished but the devs try to keep everyone up to date with progress reports.

Heard about this a while ago (quite a while ago in fact) I was looking forward to see what you guys are coming up with! Can't wait to get into a furball with an Excalibur or a Hellcat! Sad to see what happened to the B5 crew...

Ah... FreeSpace 2 and its campaigns and total conversions... :biggrin:

I was making a campaign named "Steadfast" for that beautiful game, but unfortunately since I started uni I stopped working on it (but there are other 2 persons that will finish that campaign).

 

Speaking of WC Saga, the 2 released demos are very beautiful (even if I'm not a WC fan), and there is a modeller who is releasing additional models for it. You can find them here.

Thought this was a total remake of all games.. not just WC3. But I'm d/ling it right now..

IIRC, WCS is not based on any game or novel. It is set between the novel "Fleet Action" and WC3. But thanks to FRED 2 (the FreeSpace 2 mission editor), everybody can make complex missions. When I was in the FS2 community, I tried to make some missions, and I can say that the editor is quite easy to use, so it's very likely that somebody that is not officially in the WCS team will release remakes of the games.

I thought I should give everyone a heads up. The Wing Commander:SAGA team has relesed a final trailer for "Wing Commander Saga: The Darkest Dawn" which includes the game's release date.

 

 

You can read more on the site at the WC:SAGA website. Recent articles of interest are the "You are cleared to launch, Wing Commander" about the trailer, "Campaign With a Twist" giving a breif commentary about what to exspect from the campaign, and "'Let's Play' - Khan's Darkest Dawn" about a lets play video of "The Darkest Dawn" campaign's first mission.

 

As one of the Beta Testers for Wing Commander Saga I will say that Wing Commander fans are in for a treat. If you are not a WC fan or have never played Wing Commander but like the Space Firghter Combat games like FreeSpace, X-wing, TIE Firghter, and Starlancer I highly recomend that you give it a try once it is relesed.

 

If you don't want to wait till the end of the trailer for the release date then click below.

 

 

The Game's release date is 3/22/12.

I never played the Privateer ones, but I played the regular series as well as Armada...which was a major screwup. My favorite was WC3, followed by 4 and then Prophecy. That had the best graphics and gameplay, but the worst story and FMV.
