WC Saga Prologue Released!

The long-awaited introductory chapter of WC Saga was finally released this morning. At 282 megs, the Prologue includes extensive voice-overs for a handful of missions and a long cutscene to kick things off. The story begins with 2nd Lt. David "Sandman" Markham arriving aboard the TCS Wellington around the time of Wing Commander 3. As the tutorial missions explain how to play the game, events occur that set the stage for the main WC Saga game. Between the plot missions, players can access additional text fiction, training simulations and technical information about the included ships. A 700 MHz processor, 256 megs of RAM and T&L graphics card are the minimum requirements, but better systems will deliver improved performance and enhanced special effects. Check out the readme notes here and download the game itself here. The mod is standalone and runs with everything included in the download link.

Our team has poured countless hours of sweat into creating Wing Commander Saga, and we are all extremely pleased to share the first fruits of our labor with you. After all, without the support you have provided us, none of this would have been possible. For that, you have our deepest thanks.

Following in the footsteps of a game like Wing Commander 3 is an amazing challenge. We hope you will find a familar sense of space combat as you experience our vision of the Wing Commander universe and play your part in the incredible story that will unfold in the months and years to come.
