During the devastating war depicted in this game's predecessor, StarLancer (2000), between the two future Earth's superpowers - Western Alliance and Eastern Coalition, the losing Alliance sends, in desperation, five colossal interplanetary spaceships to outer space to find a new faraway world to colonize and live there in freedom. Only four ships make it. They find several inhabitable planets, split the territory between them, form four Houses to rule these new worlds and create large communities similar to the countries that the colonists came from. 800 years later, troubles begin again when a causeless war breaks out between two of the houses and a mysterious conspiratorial terrorist group called The Order begins playing its own game. Edison Trent, a skeptical freelance spaceship pilot, is one of few who survived the Order's terrorist attack on an orbital space station. Trent and the other survivors are sent to Liberty, a hub city on a nearby planet colonized by the settlers from ... Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


The original version of the opening movie depicted what happened to the solar system after the sleeper ships had left. During the final battle, an alien ship appeared. "It was in this moment," the narration said, "that we were unified in our awe." The alien ship then launched a projectile into the sun, destroying it and everyone else in the system. Only one survivor remained in the whole system, a soldier lucky enough to be on the far side of Pluto. He took off in a ship to warn the sleeper ships of a new threat, the Nomads. See more »

Terrific game!
1 February 2007 | by (Devon, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I bought this game on eBay having heard that it was a similar game to Elite. The gameplay is indeed very similar, and is very addictive. Once I'd played it a couple of times, I immediately went back on eBay and bought copies for all my kids so they could join in the fun too.... I have played this game right through and the storyline makes it feel as if you are actually in a movie, it's brilliant. If you have trouble feeling free to explore because of the restrictive nature of the storyline in the single-player game, simply set up a Freelancer server on your own PC (easy to do and the software is included) and play to your heart's content. There are still a huge number of Freelancer servers on the Internet, so multiplayer is no problem and is not all that threatening, because you don't often meant other players unless you want to. So go get a copy of this game, learn it by playing the single-player campaign, then set up an online presence and enjoy yourself. The depth of this game is staggering, with huge systems to explore and wrecks to find, as well as all sorts of other things to discover - hidden planets, wormholes, secret bases, the list is nearly endless. Fantastic game and especially as you can get it for a couple of quid on eBay. Get one with the full written manual if you can (blue box, not Xplosiv red box), it's loads better!
