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. :)
Thanks guys for the expansions thats great news.
Oh crap, the world is ending. o_O

Anyway though, awesome to have these! :)

SpiderFromMars: Now... those EA/Bullfrog expansions... Syndicate, Populous, Dungeon Keeper... soon? :)

Thanks GOG! ^_^
Hard to say. From what I understand EA thought they had given GOG the rights to distribute the expansions, at least the ones that they own. It might be that GOG is releasing them as they're ready, or it might mean that there's something that only affects a few of the expansions, but not all.

Fantastic: Great news, thank you very much, GOG.

I'm thinking about something, though: what will happen to the reviews of these games that included that the problem with that particular game doesn't have the expansion? (I'm not sure if there are many, but I've seen the most helpful review for Alpha Centauri writes that the big problem with Alpha Centauri that it doesn't includes the Alien Crossfire expansion.) Does GOG deletes them, or they don't do anything with them (or something else)?
They don't do anything with them. You can downvote them as no longer being helpful though.
Told you guys it was gonna happen. Patience is a virtue, after all. Thank you GOG, and Paul Barnett, because I know you were gunning for these, buddy.
Oh my gosh! Thank you very much! :D

If the world ends now tomorrow then I will be very very disappointed ;P

Yeah, despite the fact that one of the blue texts once actually asked which game I had in mind when I complained about dated reviews and said that he'd look into it. :P

Darn it, it's a line from one of my favourite songs. You've just made me dig up my New Model Army CDs! Hope you're happy now!

That's my bad. Got distracted by other stuff and am also generally useless. I'm also probably going to forget about it again and just go on holiday. I'm a paragon of efficiency!
Thanks GOG!

I'm thinking that I'll be playing some Alpha Centauri during the christmas break. :-)

If they're good albums, then I am. If not, I'm effin' PISSED.
YES! Thanks GOG!
WOW! This is AWESOME! Now this is the real Christmas present for me. :)

Thanks for getting this done, GOG.
Nice. Thanks GOG and EA.
