Happy Birthday Wing Commander Arena! Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Has it already been four years? On July 25, 2007, Wing Commander Arena was released on XBox Live Arcade. Since the game was capped under a 50 megabyte limit, the wait to download the game was substantially less than the Secret Ops release in 1998, but the sense of anticipation was the same. The lucky people who stayed up all night for the game to be posted were treated to giddy squadrons of Wingnuts trying to learn all about the game's different modes, busily working to unlock new ships and staking out an early spot on the leaderboards. Coordinated capship assaults were an early favorite, and eager pilots quickly learned how to survive dogfights on the frontier. And who could forget the battle of the century? LOAF fought it out against fifteen other gaming fan sites in a virtual tournament sponsored by EA. He won a free XBox 360 to give away and established Wing Commander fans' legendary skill in the cockpit. Wing Commander Arena is available via the XBox Live Marketplace for 800 MS Points ($10)!

Wing Commander Arena is a fast-paced space combat game where players can team up to attack other teams of ships. The game introduces the classic franchise to an arcade-style experience that allows up to 16 players online in battle at once. Players can propel their customized ship through space, fire torpedoes and unleash deadly gravity bombs as they try to climb the leader board. Online players will compete for Frag count, high score and dueling stats.
