Vintage (1996) Wing Commander IV: The Price of Freedom computer | joystick game published by Origin Systems | Electronic Arts. Complete.
THIS GAME HAS BEEN INVENTORIED AND TESTED AND IS 100% COMPLETE AND ALL SIX (6) ARE FULLY WORKING.
Game overview (from the game material supplied): The war against the empire of Kilrah is over and humans have emerged victorious -- but, at what price? Most military personnel have retired or been discharged from active service, many with little or no skills to rely on in the civilian world. Former ace pilot Colonel Christopher Blair is now a farmer on a remote dust ball planet. As problems develop within the Confederation, a new threat arises, seemingly from outside. Recent pirate attacks against Confederation ships have taken a heavy toll and intelligence suspects the Union of Border Worlds may be involved. The Border Worlds, colonized by humans but too far out on the fringes of the Confederation empire to be controlled effectively, were the Confederation's staunchest supporter during the Kilrathi War. But, now that the war's over, can they be trusted? This and other questions will be answered as players take on the role of Christopher Blair, recalled to military service as part of a Confed information gathering probe into Border World territory. Players will play through the game's many space combat missions in a variety of fighters ranging from quick and nimble light fighters to slow heavy bombers. Each mission has one or more objectives that must be completed before advancing. While flying, players have access to two primary weapons, their ship's unlimited guns and a limited arsenal of different types of missiles. The plot in Wing Command IV: The Price of Freedom is actuated through the players' choices of pre-scripted dialogue both during flying sequences and in full motion video sequences used to advance the story filled with secrets, treachery and betrayal.
