It’s been a while since Malcolm McDowell and Mark Hamill, uh, hammed it up in a game together. That doesn’t mean we don’t miss them and their furry anthropomorphised enemies, the Kilrathi. If this is beginning to sound a lot like something Wing Commander-related, congratulations! It is. Specifically, GOG is selling the entire series of games for a 50 per cent discount.
At the time of writing, there’s about 10 and a half hours left on the deal, which offers the following titles:
- Wing Commander 4: The Price of Freedom
- Wing Commander 3 Heart of the Tiger
- Wing Commander: Privateer
- Wing Commander 1+2
- Wing Commander: Academy
- Wing Commander 5: Prophecy Gold Edition
- Wing Commander: Armada
- Privateer 2: The Darkening
According to the promo page, buying the games individually would set you back almost $US50, but if you pick them up now, it’s $US23.92 for the lot.
Why the sale? Apparently it’s to celebrate the recent availability of Wing Commander: Armada on GOG, which is as good a reason as any to offer a bunch of awesome space sims for cheap.
Now, go back to the top of this story and look at the image of a surly Mark Hamill some more.
