Wing Commander Saga: The Darkest Dawn is a fan-made tribute to the grand-daddy of sci-fi space sims. Officially sanctioned by EA, it’s been in development for 10 years.

Using the Freespace 2 engine, it features an “epic storyline” that complements the events from Wing Commander 3, large-scale fleet battles, 60 voice actors, 55 missions, achievements, tons of cutscenes and lots of cheesy wingman dialogue.

The original Wing Commander was released 22 years ago. The Darkest Dawn will be released for free on March 22 via the site.
