Freespace 2, the award winning sim of the year '99 is a superb space opera of epic proportions. The strong emphasis on plot development combined with spectacular graphics and story-based missions make Freespace 2 the best space sim ever made, even 4 years after its initial release.
It takes place in the year 2367, 32 years after the Great War, where the imposing forces of the Shivans have surfaced again, threatening the survival of the Terrans and the Vasudans.
Pilot up to 15 Ships with deadly weapons, destroy Huge Capital ships, guard transports, fly recon missions and guard your life. Back in black and bigger than ever, Freespace 2 is just about everything you'd want in a hard-core 3D space combat sim.
The Multiplayer game, played on PXO's online hub, offered an intense competition in either Team versus Team, Co-operative or Free for all modes with up to 12 players per game.
The Freedom Fighters have been involved with Freespace 2 since 1999; indeed it is the reason the clan exists. Freedom Fighters were extremely well respected within the Freespace 2 online community and the division has always competed at the highest level. With countless victories amongst the stars we always strive to be honourable in our quest for domination. Always valiant we fight for freedom

The source code was released in 2002. Content update packs have been developed which take advantage of the upgraded game engine. These packs include higher-poly models and higher resolution textures. The end result of this project is a graphically superior and far more flexible game engine, while still retaining all of the gameplay elements that made Freespace 2 successful. In addition the pxo online hub has been replaced by FS2NET making online play possible again, including a lobby to meet other pilots.
