    The Wing Commander series has had quite a few large and elaborate print advertisements over the years, but even by the franchise's often lofty standards, this one's a whopper. This ad is spread across six full pages and follows a "five senses" theme with a late '90s vibe. Sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch are all emphasized along with a smattering of FMV screenshots, gameplay scenes and a handful of commodities. Then everything is wrapped up with the box art and tag line. Pretty cool stuff! Thanks to Anatoly Shashkin for finding this one - follow his DOSNostalgic feed for more neat stuff like this.

    Wow. I wonder just how one is supposed to process and digest non-organic materials.

    That aside, it's an interesting advertisement. Looking at the final page, it seems to bank heavily on the name and reputation of the original Privateer: 'long-awaited sequel'.

    There was less than a year between WC1&2 and just fourteen months from WC3 to WC4. The gap from Priv to Privateer 2 was more than three years (2.5 years from RF and Priv CD), so there was certainly some pent up demand for a new Privateer game!
