The game takes you to a dystopian future, run by a massive corporate entity. You play as a Silencer, a super-soldier who has been betrayed and marked for death (after refusing orders to fire on civilians). Sure, the storyline’s been done before, but the isometric game itself features one exciting feature that set it apart in 1995 – interactive, destructible environments.
This seems like an odd choice for EA, not holding the nostalgic factor of Wing Commander III nor the recent appeal of Dragon Age: Origins, but hey – it’s a free game, and 20 years ago, it was kind of a big deal. (These days, by the way, it sells for $5.)
All you need to do to grab your free copy of Crusader: No Remorse is to have an Origin account, head to the On the House website, and download! The game’s yours forever – but be quick, it’s only available for a limited time.
EA‘s freebie On The House program has been running since March, giving away copies of Dragon Age: Origins, Bejeweled 3, Wing Commander III: Heart of the Tiger, Peggle, Dead Space, Battlefield 3 and Plants vs. Zombies, as EA combines genres and gameplay styles across the board.
