With the release of X-wing Alliance and X-wing vs. TIE Fighter on Good Old Games, the entirety of the classic X-wing series is now officially available online, which means now is the perfect time to revisit the most ambitious version of them all: X-wing Alliance.Watch live video from usgamernet on www.twitch.tv
I'll be streaming X-wing Alliance starting 4pm PT/7pm ET, where I'll share my thoughts on its place in flight sim history, as well as its relationship to X-wing and TIE Fighter. I'll also be showing off all the cool mods from X-wing Alliance Upgrade, which are practically a required download.
X-wing Alliance was originally released in 1999 as the final chapter in the X-wing trilogy (X-wing vs. TIE Fighter was more of a challenge pack), its most hyped feature being the introduction of a flyable Millennium Falcon. It's also notable for its more robust story, which follows the Azameen family of traders, and its huge selection of Expanded Universe ships.
