Origin Free Game

  • The free game available right now is...

    Crusader: No Remorse from 1995 on the PC. It was later ported to the Sony Playstation and the Sega Saturn in 1997. It was well received at the time.

    Quoting Wikipedia: "Crusader: No Remorse won the Action Game of the Year award from Computer Gaming World. In 1996, Computer Gaming World ranked it as the 38th best PC game of all time, also listing the game's ultraviolet rifle among the 15 "best worst ways to die in computer gaming."

    Wikipedia also cites Crusader as an influence on the Fallout series.

  • Cool! Thanks for the update!

  • Downloading that now. I think I remember that one from way back then.

  • Isn't that a branch from strong hold crusader?

    No, it is loosely associated between Origin's Wing Commander series (with which it shares some story) and System Shock (for which there are in game references.) Officially, it has been stated, they do not share a universe. But apparently there was some intentional tie in with them and it is loosely part of the same universe. And as System Shock 1 & 2 are the prequels to the Bioshock series, one could argue that it is part of a pretty massive gaming continuum starting with Wing Commander and still going with the DLC releases for the third Bioshock title!

  • New free game: Sim City 2000.

    Go get it now before it is gone.
