A strategy game base upon the popular Wing Commander Universe. This game sees you in command of either the Terran or Kilrathi empires in a bid to conquer a sector of space. This game provided 2 distinct modes of play with Armada being entirely tactically based and a far easier quick play method much like the mission creation facilities of Chuck Yegar's Air Combat of 5 years previous.

This game also featured multi-player support both in Quick play and Armada modes. The game could be played either in split-screen, network, serial or modem modes and was one of the first multi-player 3D space sims.

These days, this game is not the only Wing Commander game with multiplayer support. There's Wing Commander Prophecy for the GBA, featuring multiplayer support (by linking four GBAs together with a cable). The game is developed by Raylight Studios, not by Origin, though.
