"Release Announcement" Trailer Released!
You are cleared to launch, Wing Commander.


Wing Commander Saga: The Darkest Dawn has been in development for a decade. You have all been waiting for a long time, and so have we. The wait is finally over. The Wing Commander Saga team is happy to present you with the final Wing Commander Saga trailer! The trailer gives a preview of many of Saga's features, including a few that we have kept secret, but it also finally answers our most frequently asked question of "when is Saga's release date?" Check out the trailer and start the count down to launch!

We will release our soundtrack, but this particular track won't be part of it. It's called "Call for Heroes", composed by Pierre Gerwig Langer, and can be purchased for 60 USD at shockwave-sound.com

Re: "Release Announcement" Trailer Released!
Out of curiosity, why did you decide on this particular date? And why did you announce it two weeks prior to it?
You wanted some fans to die form anticipation to ease the server load?  :)

Re: "Release Announcement" Trailer Released!
March 22nd marks a very special anniversary for us - Saga was founded 10 years ago... on March 22nd.

Other than that: our inability to meet a deadline has led to a number of jokes over the years. We decided not to announce the release date unless we were absolutely certain.

Re: "Release Announcement" Trailer Released!
I'm getting a bit nervous myself.
Having watched this all those years and having contributed a lot of stuff myself (I wonder what is left from my work in the game though, since most of it was done some years ago) I really hope that the players will like the game.

All the years a lot of people said "it is vaporware" and I told them "No, we are working on it, we WILL release" and sometimes I wondered if I was lying to them because of course there were times when the development was slower and we had sooo much to do and it looked grim because everybody had to to studies or work a lot.
I feel a little bad that I hardly could help the rest of the team anymore during the last few months, but I'm glad that others could continue.
It also really hurt that (Tolwyn just mentioned it) we couldn't meet sooo many of our deadlines. But that's life I guess.

And now we are finally there. And although I spent only a few hundred hours doing Saga stuff (compared to thousands of hours others worked) I am proud that I have contributed to the game.
I am really really nervous. I haven't seen most of the game, just a few parts and not how they fit together. I will download it just like the fans do and play it for the first time from start to end.

This is going to be great. And I am happy that I could be a part of it. Thanks Tolwyn, for recruiting me back in 2005 (or 2006!)  :)

Re: "Release Announcement" Trailer Released!
You guys are ****ing awesome. I've never played Wing Commander nor really followed much of WCS' progress but I'm going to play your game because you guys kept your heads down and spent ten years of your lives finishing what must've felt like an impossible task.

Never played Wing Commander?  Wow.  Go get it on GoG, it's a must play for shootem up fanatics.  :)  (albeit easy as far as 1 and 2 are concerned... Wing Commander 3 on Crazy or Nightmare difficulty... _THAT_ is another story)

You need that guy from the movie trailers to say the text inserts in a totally dramatic trailer voice.
