Before he decided to spend a lifetime developing Star Citizen, Chris Roberts was leading the FMV cinematic charge with the Wing Commander series. Wing Commander 4: The Price of Freedom – Remastered is a new fan project that recreates the game, and its many cinematics in high-definition. And there's a demo you can try right now.
Here's a trailer which showcases the modern visuals.
Wing Commander was an incredibly popular space combat simulator series from the '90s known for its strong narratives. With Wing Commander III, the series switched to full motion video. With Wing Commander IV: The Price of Freedom the series created what is probably the greatest example of the medium, with hollywood budgets, real sets and an outstanding cast including Mark Hamill, Malcolm McDowell, John Rhys-Davies and Tom Wilson.
This project is a fan attempt to allow owners of Wing Commander IV: The Price of Freedom to enjoy a more modern experience by loading the files from the original game into a new engine, complete with specially created, high definition assets.
To play the full game you'll need to own the original via GOG or Origin. For the demo and download info - head here.
