Starlancer: Sol War is a new space shooter based on the Digital Anvil game Starlancer. The game is going to be playable in singleplayer and multiplayer with more than 70 levels spread over 3 campaigns.

The game will have a short tutorial which does introduce the basic controls and features while the following campaigns are completly story related. With campaign 1 we show the start of the Sol war which already is covered by the original game. That campaign is more or less just a reproduction of the old game with a better game engine while the other two following campaigns tell a story about the 100 years of war between coalition and alliance.

Starlancer: Sol War is closing the missing gap between the original Starlancer and its sequel Freelancer.

Fellow passionate gamers, 

The 2009 Mod of the Year Awards event is up and running. For the past few years 
Crossfire has reached the Top 100. 
We would like to thank you all for your kind support! Without your votes this 
would not have been possible. 

This year again we need your votes; not only for Crossfire but all the other 
brilliant mods that made this game immortal. The communities and modders have 
kept this great game alive for the last seven years - and the game will 
hopefully live on for many more years. Your support is decisive to us 
Freelancers. Despite the fact that many players have left over the years, the 
many Mods 
Freelancer has to offer attracted a lot of new people, and many veterans came 
back. 

However, a game cannot survive without any support. We encourage you to have a 
look at all the Freelancer Mods on www.moddb.com. We need you to vote! 

A new year approaches and with it a little surprise. Crossfire 1.8 will be 
released in the first week of 2010 and will push the game to the next level. 
Fantastic story, next generation graphics and perfect gameplay. For more 
information and many screenshots and videos please go to: Moddb.com 

Don't forget to vote for us! 

We look forward seeing you on our server in January. 

The SWAT Team wishes a Merry Christmas to you and your families and a Happy New 
Year 2010! 

Kind Regards, 

The SWAT Team

The freelancer/starlancer universe is an interesting one, and sadly its a universe that no longer has the support of its developers. Im glad that there is an active modding community.

This project seems to be a little late to the game, although perhaps there is some serious work going on. I havent heard any news of it.
As i understand it, the original war broke out due to nations fighting over control of the Sol system, and traditional allies and enemies teamed up in the space age. After the coalition finally takes the upper hand and finishes the alliance, the alliance decides to execute its last hope for mankind and launch the sleeper ships. After they are gone, the nomads arrive and shoot out the sun with some super weapon, leaving only one survivor, on mars. This survivor warns the sleepers and the last remaining humans, but over the 800 years between that time and the events of freelancer, humanity had forgotten, and the nomads once again come to prey on them.

Im not sure where i read this info, but i thought the this was common knowledge.
If this game chooses to add to the story, I suppose it wouldnt be canonical in any way and just fan fiction?
Either way, if this project is still afloat, i look forward to it.

I didn't even know Starlancer had something to do with Freelancer (but Chris Robert's influence of course)
