Because we like you so, we have a gift for you.

A while back, we started to sell EA games--great classics such as Wing Commander, Privateer, and Alpha Centauri. A few people--just a few!--noted that we didn't have the expansions and that made them sad panda.

Well, panda, be sad no more! As a holiday gift from us to you, we're bringing everyone who bought (or buys in the future!) the expansions for Wing Commander 1 + 2, Wing Commander Privateer, and Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri for you today! These expansions are free updates, so just download the new installers for each game from your account and start playing now! Note that these EA games will not be part of any Daily Deal bundle, so go ahead and pick them up now for only $2.99 each.

The expansions are:
Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri--Sid Meier's Alien Crossfire.
Sid Meier's Alien Crossfire brings you seven new factions (two that are non-human), new technologies, new facilities, new secret projects, new alien life forms, new unit special abilities, new victory conditions (including the new "Progenitor Victory") and several additional concepts and strategies, making it a "must-have" expansion for the award-winning game.

Wing Commander 1 + 2--Wing Commander: The Secret Missions, Wing Commander: The Secret Missions 2 Crusade, Wing Commander II: Special Operations 1, Wing Commander II: Special Operations 2.
The Wing Commander expansions bring new missions, new ships, a new storyline, and an increase in difficulty in The Secret Missions, and in Secret Missions 2: Crusade, we see a whole new alien race, a new challenge, and a mysterious defection all raising the stakes of both the game's storytelling and its combat. In Wing Commander II: Special Operations 1 we see a layered web of deceit, lies, betrayal, and action all bringing that trademarked Wing Commander cinematic feel, while Special Operations 2 sees the player ambushed while escorting a traitor, and soon the player (as Col. Blair) will find himself undertaking one of his most dangerous missions of all: an undercover one infiltrating the very traitors he was escorting in the first place!

Wing Commander Privateer--Privateer Righteous Fire.
Finally, in Righteous Fire the player squares off against a crazy fundamentalist sect called the Retros as the open-ended space sim world's story continues with more action, ships, and missions to keep player occupied for hours.

A special thanks goes out to Paul Barnett and Jeff Skalski at Mythic (@MythicNews) for their help getting these add-ons secured (finally!) and available to you. :)
Thank you so much! This is a step in the right direction! ^_^
qumqam: I hate to bite the hand that gives and this is really generous and great news, but:

Could you please make the vanilla Alpha Centauri also available for separate download?

I'm thrilled to get Alien Crossfire for free, but I personally prefer the base game. I'll burn my previously downloaded installer to CD but the whole point of Gog is that I shouldn't have to.
Just like originally, you're still given seperate launchers for both the original game and for the game + expansion. So no need for biting :)

I am not interested in those expansions (the only one I am missing is the Syndicate one) but this is greatly appreciated. Nice to see that GOG is listening and is trying to get them.

You even may uncheck Alien Crossfire during installation and don't install it at all! :D
btw. because GOG staff as usual doesn't give a damn :P I contacted Jeff Skalski about expansions to Syndicate, Populous and Dungeon keeper, he replied:

@keeveek Going to try my best. No promises yet. I totally forgot about Deeper Dungeons for DK! Happy holidays!
DCT: Given that the GOG version is the DOS version then yes you should not run into the bug
Perfect, thanks for the confirmation!
Great news. Been hoping for Alien Crossfire and the secret ops !
Thank you so much, the wing commander games are just not complete with out these!
AFnord: That is great news! Time to actually download Wing Commander Prophecy and play it, now that it is the complete thing.
DeadlyRamon: I don't see Wing Commander Prophecy in GOG's catalog.
Eh, typo, I meant Privateer. But Prophecy also has an expansion that has not been released here :P
Thanks! The Secret Missions/Special Operations expansions are critical for WC. In particular, parts of WC3 make a lot less sense without WC2 SO. (This also more than doubles the playtime of WC 1 and 2; the expansions are not small!)

Someone (can't find it back) asked up-thread where to start with WC. WC1-4 are the main plot and the choice really comes down to starting with WC1 or WC3. 1 and 2 are sprite-based and those picky about visuals may be turned off by the "cartoon" look. 3 represents the switch to polygon rendering. I'd definitely start with 1 if you can deal with the graphics; I think the gameplay is just a touch tighter and it's worth having the whole story.
Way to go, GOG! Thank you very much for this, boys & girls in blue! And thanks to Paul Barnett and Jeff Skalski, too!

All I can say is thanks GOG, EA and all involved. Great to see so many happy gamers.
<3 <3 to all those involved bringing the expansions to us at no cost to the consumers!

Just purchase WC1+2 and WC Privateer thanks to the inclusion of these "must have" add-ons. Thanks GOG!

Next up - Strike Commander + Tactical Operations please :)
Seriously. This update needs something about being sure to wear brown pants before reading it. I am going to go change and play some SMAX.
