Wing Commander Saga: The Darkest Dawn


The conflict between Earth and Kilrah is drawing to a close, and the Terran Confederation is not winning. Humanity's only hope lies in a desperate plan that will require even idealistic young fighter pilots to stretch themselves beyond all imagination. It's the end of the world, and you have a front row seat.

Wing Commander Saga: The Darkest Dawn is a fan project that can be downloaded for free. Its gameplay matches the classic Wing Commander games. You can participate in bigger battles and listen to pilots chatters as a part of the story telling. The game includes several pre-rendered movies and hours of voiceovers.

It contains two campaigns. The first is Prologue, a 5-mission campaign set aboard the TCS Wellington to teach playing Wing Commander Saga. This prepares the player for the main (2nd) campaign The Darkest Dawn, a 50-mission campaign is based on the TCS Hermes.
