I hope ID Software decides to release Wolfenstein 3D in its entirety as freeware for its 25th anniversary next year. What do you people think? They should release Spear of Destiny for free too as a bonus.

Probably not gonna happen, as long as they can sell it. Moreover ID is no more independant, so they couldn't take this decision on their own.

I think Spear Of Destiny freeware is more likely than Wolf3D to become freeware. But I wouldn't hold my breath for either. There's multiple licenses granted for both, as both had retail releases and were also sold through mail by more than one company.

I hope this isn't too off topic. Wolfenstein 3D Super Upgrades from 1994 is now freeware from 3DRealms' archive web site. It had a random level generator that I don't like anymore, an editor, and over 800 levels. I can just imagine that some of you would think that some of the levels are lame or superficial.

I thought the DOS version of Wolfenstein 3-D was now abandonware and available for free legally. Is this not the case?

It's currently being sold for $5. You can find it here:

https://3drealms.com/catalog/#

Id Software probably sells a version without the "Read This!" features enabled, as well as a smaller VGAGRAPH file.
