Wing Commander Saga Released Update ID

The long-awaited Wing Commander Saga fan mod is finally available for download! The story takes place in the same timeframe as Wing Commander III, but you play as a rookie pilot on the TCS Hermes. Saga is a standalone game that runs on top of an updated Descent: Freespace 2 engine. If you'd like to know more about the decade-long development cycle, Shotglass recently ran a cool feature on it.

Update: wcsaga.com is currently overloaded. Read the release notes here. Scroll down for download links.

Wing Commander Saga is currently available for Windows (Mac and Linux versions are coming soon), and has rather modest system requirements. The installer weighs in at a hefty 3.4 gigabytes, so we recommend some kind of download manager that can resume paused or failed transfers. Older Windows editions may have trouble unpacking a zip file of this size. If you experience any difficulties, use 7zip to extract the package. Here is the current list of mirrors:

WCSO Model Upgrade Pack Adds Comm Relay Station

DefianceIndustries has completed the first large scale base for the Secret Ops Model Upgrade Pack. This is a cool design, and the tiny little flight deck is a nice touch.

Happy Father's Day

Many countries celebrate Father's Day today, and we know a lot of Wing Commander fans have recently become dads out there. My little one just turned 16 months old, and I'm happy to that see she grabs a controller and starts pushing buttons whenever she gets a chance.The CIC is more of a news site than a blog, but it's also a community hub more than anything, and it feels right to share this personal story with the community.
