Step back in time: Play Wing Commander 3 for free

EA is taking things oldschool with its latest On The House deal. For a limited time, you can score yourself a free copy of classic space action game Wing Commander III: Heart of the Tiger, first released 20 years ago for MS-DOS.

All you need to do is have an Origin account and be signed in – and you’re all set for a space-age nostalgia blast from the year 2669.

Brace yourselves: Wing Commander III is a classic example of 3D interstellar shooters combined with stunning, mid-90s full motion video. Back in the day, it required 4 CDs to install, and yet today you can download it in just a few minutes. Oh, how times have changed.

Wing Commander III is the fifth free game to receive the On The House treatment – and it’s by far the oldest. Previously, gamers have been given Peggle, Dead Space, Battlefield 3 and Plants vs. Zombies.

Remember, this is a limited-time-only offer – we don’t know when it’ll expire, so you’d better act fast!
