Wing Commander IV: The Price of Freedom Remaster will offer a more modern experience by loading the files from the original game into a new engine, complete with specially created, high-definition assets.
This remaster promises to improve the cut-scenes and the game’s graphics. My guess is that the team will be using AI techniques in order to improve all of the FMVs. However, the game’s missions will remain the same. Furthermore, the remaster will support flight sticks, XInput compatible gamepads, as well as Mouse and Keyboard.
Do note that this is mostly a pre-alpha demo, and does not reflect the quality of the final game. For instance, the AI behavior is entirely placeholder. You may also encounter bugs and crashes. So basically, the team released this demo in order to get some feedback from the Wing Commander community.
You can download the demo for Wing Commander IV: The Price of Freedom Remastered from its official website.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
