1996 Ad Highlights Anticipation For WC4 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Comic Book Ads has spotted a neat advert for Wing Commander 4. It's a derivative of a print we saw a number of years ago that spelled out various magazine accolades. This variant highlights just one from Next Generation Magazine, "One of the most eagerly awaited games of 1996." That was certainly true! (although it was originally due out in December 1995) It's interesting to see the other minor differences: Tolwyn's profile is cropped further away, the fonts are overhauled and it's listed as "Available now on PC CD-ROM!" It seems like the version with the three quotes came later, since they're all citing actual reviews, and there's a small red logo denoting the Macintosh version, which was released four months later in June 1996.
