"It was the 23rd Century: mankind’s darkest hour."


That is what we have thought for centuries but we were wrong. A new threat waiting for aeons has moved out of the dark. We have seen them, we have fought them, we have gained an important victory but we were not aware that they were not the only ones hiding between the stars. Now we have stumbled into a galactic war that had been raging ten thousands of years.
Mankind on the loosing side, in the middle of Crossfire.

The Crossfire Mod is by far the biggest and most complex Freelancer modification available. For many years this mod is known for highest quality and innovative ideas which we have introduced to the Freelancer modding scene.
With Crossfire we have build and extended an universe based on the original Freelancer game and its story. Realism and a logical development of the quest based storyline and the game environment such as the systems and the technological development is most important on this mod. Crossfire is not a static mod like most others, it is a dynamic developing environment with dynamic economy, dynamic universe, destructable solars and download content (DLC) which introduces new quests, new ships, new systems and new equipment.

Most important in this mod is the atmosphere.
High quality graphics, high quality music tracks, more than 150 very detailed systems, new voice samples, stunning effects, many challenging quests, ten thousands of small side stories and rumours, fantastic gameplay and hundreds of cool ships. That is the Crossfire mod.

Crossfire 2.0 - A year in review


2015 was truely was a year of detail improvements in Crossfire. After the release of the first beta version at the end of 2014 we got lots of player feedbacks and could observe how the Mod performs in our online environment.

The step... or probably we should say the huge jump from Crossfire 1.9 to version 2.0 adressed many wishes and suggestions of our community at the SWAT Portal. Next to that we also wanted to redesign the complete Mod in order to look stunning and feel amazing. Large parts of the storyline, known from Crossfire 1.9, got redesigned in order to allow a more dynamic Singleplayer experience. We also had new story missions on our agenda, as we clearly wanted to finish the main storyline of the Crossfire mod with version 2.0.

Crossfire 2.0 turned out to be a huge success. The amount of people which took part in beta testing was truely impressive and the feedback we got allowed us to improve the Mod even further.

In October 2015 we finally decided to re-release Crossfire 2.0 as full version that contains all fixes and improvements. Additionally the full release also contained new content such as new ships and new story missions. We also have considered this new release as a proof of concept to show how an upcoming feature might work: Community Content (but more about this later).

Since October we have kept focusing on online content. In particular we were working on the improved Clan support and various improvements to the automatic Roleplay system. For several weeks meanwhile the modular Clan Bases are being beta tested by one of our Server clans and we are almost done with the work. Another feature that soon can be used by our players.






Community Content

Getting the Community involved in the development of the Mod always was one of our highest goals.
With Crossfire 2.0 we included specific markers into the main storyline which allows us and the community members to develop and include own story missions that then can be shared with the community. With the release of the early beta version back in 2014 we included the first of these so called Bonus missions, which represent small side stories which have no direct influence on the main story.
In October 2015 we then released a 2nd Bonus mission, which continues the story arc that was started with the first Bonus mission. Step by step new singleplayer content will be created this way and everyone is invited to help giving these new missions their shape.
In 2016 we will create and active developer team for these kinds of Missions.

Modular Clan Bases

As already written above we have spend the past few weeks with the final development of our modular Clan Stations.
What is that?
While Clan stations are meanwhile nothing new in Freelancer anymore we have decided to make a different approach on this topic. We wanted our stations to look amazing and we wanted our players to truely experience how dynamic it can be to construct and upgrade an own station.
Players can upgrade stations and build new modules which really get added to the station as external components and also internal rooms. Each module has its unique look and its unique purpose... starting with a simple flight deck and then later constructing a bar, a ship dealer, mooring ports, factories, cargo modules, shield generators and even defense platforms. Each station module grants access to new features, special items and very special ships.
Constructing Stations of course requires teamwork and is a great motivation joining forces in order to achieve something outstanding in Freelancer.

Online Conquest System

The Conquest System is something we have planned for 2016.
Personally i don't want to reveil to much about it, but at this point I can tell that it is going to be war-like scenario (similar to the ASF vs CSF) which connects multiple key features of Crossfire with each other. The Conquest system involves a territory based system of influence for Clans which will be linked with the construction and upgrades of Clan Stations. It also will have influence on the already active automatic Roleplay system.
2016 truely will be great for Freelancer online gameplay.

I need help. I've installed the mod following every step of the guide with several clean reinstalls, but whenever I launch my launcher displays "Trying to read update information" really quick, then crashes. Even if I alt+f4 that message and manages to launch the game before it crashes, it doesn't run.

Please advise.

I am at the hyperion jump gate. Why on earth are there level 19 outcasts in the mission? I am only level 17, how should one level 17 take on three level 19 outcast raiders?

by aiming at them and then opening fire?
lvl19 outcasts are not even strong enemies... by the you reach this mission you should everything you need to proceed. Next to that are you not fighting alone.

if thats a problem then you clearly should take a look at the combat guides on the launcher.

Should I start from the beginning? Because I played before I did the update and I completed the story. I then loaded the last mission in order to do the new ones that you provided. Should I start from scratch?

Crossfire is the best looking Freelancer mod. Hard to believe that this game was released seven years ago.

Lowest Rated (9 agree) 5/10

I love the tune up to the area and especially to Trent himself. But i find that with the increase in difficulty, space battles in SP take a very long time. This i can deal with as it makes the battles themselves more interesting and unpredictable. However i find myself getting annoyed during the first mission that character Beta 4 is destroyed before i've managed to kill 1 enemy. This happens over and over most tries lasting under a minute resulting in me quitting the game. If players are forced…
