BREAKING NEWS: FOX to Re-Release Wing Commander DVD Update ID

Surprising news today: despite previous claims that they would never revisit the film on home video, FOX now plans to re-release the 1999 Wing Commander film DVD. The release is set for November 1st, just one week after VEI's Wing Commander Academy set. We do not have details of the contents yet, but are already excited by the fact that the new release does have completely new cover art (pictured below). We will update you as information becomes available; it seems unlikely that a modern DVD would still include the 2000 version's non-anamorphic transfer. Pre-orders are currently available through Amazon Canada and FOX Connect.

Celebrate the Destruction of Kilrah with some Friends! Update ID

On 24 September 2669, Colonel Christopher "Maverick" Blair dropped the Temblor Bomb resulting in the destruction of Kilrah.

To celebrate the anniversary we're calling all Wingnuts to drop by #Wingnut on IRC to talk Wing Commander, play some multiplayer games (Arena, Armada, WCP MP), and especially talk about the WCPedia project. Recent events have kept everyone pretty busy lately, but we do have goals to reach in the next year.

The 24th is a Saturday, so wingnuts should feel free to drop by all day. The CIC staff and #wingnut regulars will be around to talk shop and play some multiplayer games. The WCPedia meeting will take place at 7 pm EST. We'll be talking about all aspects of the project, so if you're curious about it, or want to volunteer, drop in!

We look forward to seeing you there!

Treasures of the Archangel Quadrant: G'Tok IV Update ID

Welcome to G'Tok IV, a Kilrathi manufacturing port. These screens show the city's landing pad and space port. The official description reads: "G'tok IV is a floating industrial city. Built forty years ago, it is still expanding to this day. Antigravity engines keep the platform afloat above the toxic surface of the planet which is heavily laced in highly concentrated sulfuric acid. The atmosphere is poisonous but a rebreather is all that is required, though a trip to the surface without a full body suit would result in death. G'Tok IV is a prime example of Kilrathi ingenuity and determination to dominate everything they can use. G'Tok IV is known sector- wide for its refined tritanium."

Check Out Spanish Wing Commander Armada

Christian Klein has found another rare and exotic Spanish Wing Commander translation by DROSoft. His last couple finds were for WC1 and the Secret Missions, but this jumps all the way forward to Armada. It would be a treat to see how they changed the Voices of War manual and how the English and Spanish versions would mesh over multiplayer. (2018-05-22)

Trusty Tarsus Takes Shape

Now that the Talon's out in the wild, DefianceIndustries' focus shifts to the Gemini Sector's other workhorse, the Tarsus. It's kind of a shame you don't actually run into them out and about, because the design is just so darn charming. Perhaps some of the allure is simply because it's your own unique home away from home out in space for so much of the game. (2018-05-21)
