Universe Map Origins Revealed in "Wing 5" Progression Map Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Here's a peek at an interesting prototype of the Wing Commander Universe Map included with Wing Commander Prophecy.

While the final map detailed many sectors where most of the main events happened in the series, this appears to be a little snippet that just traces through the events of WCP. Due to the number of differences, it appears to predate even the preview map that was released online during development, which is pretty cool! Extra bonus: Pix, ace and LOAF posing Texas-style with George Oldziey's CD!
