Storyline

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.

Trivia

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 »

A Terrace on the foundations of a Mansion
22 April 2003 | by Jack DoyleSee all my reviews

Freelancer is the greatest game that never was. Chris Roberts original idea was for a huge fully dynamic universe were your actions could in one system could affect another system eg pirating all the gold going to New Berlin thus increasing the price of gold on New Berlin. Unfortunately after microsoft bought digital anvil in order to get its hands on freelancer they became impatience with Roberts and sacked him his number 2 took over and sped up production abandoning alot of the stuff that should have been in the game, Scripted sub missions, subplots, upgrades to the sensors, the ability to actually join a group rather than just freelancer, and most importantly the ability to actually affect the universe in any real way. However it is a good game just not what it should have been. they laid the foundations of a mansion but only built a terrace on top. a missed opportunity. lets hope they make a wing commander 6
