Yep, you read that right, you can get a free copy of the classic Wing Commander 3 game for free now.
It’s a bit weird considering EA, a company that’s known to be pretty vilified for charging gamers for everything, is being so generous. First it was the free copy of The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection, and now this. What’s next we wonder.
Wing Commander 3 was originally going for US$4.99 on the Origin store, but for this limited time only, you’ll be able to get it for free. Be quick though as according to Origin, these deals tend to come and go real fast. In case you’re wondering just what the Wing Commander series is about, it’s a space flight simulation game created by Chris Roberts at Origin Systems. It had the distinct honour of featuring known Holywood actors including Malcom MaDowell and forever Joker and Skywalker, Mark Hamill.
This free offer is part of Origin’s “On the House” program which started back in March so we should be seeing more freebies from them in the coming months. We can’t wait.
