EA Origin's On the House Promo Goes Old-School in August with Wing Commander III for Free

Origin, EA’s digital games platform and client, has serviced users with its “On the House” promotion since March to give free games out each month with titles like Dead Space and Battlefield 3 making an appearance on the list, and for August the service is going old-school with its latest title.

EA revealed that the old-school PC title Wing Commander III: Heart of the Tiger will be gracing the “On the House” selection for the month of August, and while the name may not ring a bell for many gamers of today, PC gamers of the past (or those looking to get their start into FMV-wonder) can re-live its space-opera magic with Mark Hamill and Malcolm McDowell. If you’re looking for a trip back to 1994, taking up EA’s free offer might just be the place to do it.

You can download Wing Commander III for PC on Origin for free here, before the next title makes its rotation (presumably) sometime by next month.
