"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.

Freelancer 2:

The last stand

Crossfire 2.0 - Release

In 2014 we had to deal with lots of critics regarding the overdue Mod release. Infact the development of the Mod took much longer than expected in first place. There were many reasons for the delay, such as technical problems (as we were really working at the limits of whats possible with the game engine), the sheer size of the Mod, community feedback and wishes which convinced us to add even more content than originally intended. The amount of time and work we have invested to build the new version has been massive.

I wish I could say that all the work is done, already.
A few weeks ago we have silently released a public Beta version of the Crossfire 2.0 Mod and since that we have been pretty quiet about it here at ModDb.
We knew that the singleplayer part of the Mod was working flawlessly, but our server software (which has been completely rewritten for CF 2.0) required a step by step testing and debugging period. We decided to go through that procedure with the core Crossfire Online Community. It was the best possible test environment for us to locate and fix the most urgent problems aswell as getting qualified feedback from long term Crossfire players. Every day the Mod and server software are getting better and more reliable.

Since we clearly didn't want enter the Mod Awards 2014 with empty hands you are free to download the latest Beta version of Crossfire 2.0 at www.swat-portal.com
You will very soon notice how much work went into this massive Mod which truly can be called the "Freelancer sequel".
But please keep in mind that this is just a Beta version of the Mod and that we are still working on the Multiplayer part of it. Many server features are currently not even active, but we will change that bit by bit in the next few weeks.

Download, Support and Feedback

As long we are still Beta testing the Mod we will not provide a Download for Crossfire 2.0 here at ModDb. You will only be able to download it from www.swat-portal.com since we are from time to time updating this download. When all tests are done we will of course release a final version of the Mod here aswell. Until then the only valid download link will be at the SWAT Portal website.

If you need help or if you want to report a problem then use our Bug Tracker. We will take care of the issue as soon as possible.
We will not give any support here at Moddb (we don't have the time to do that on multiple websites -> so use the official Bug Tracker)

You can leave your feedback on the official Crossfire Forums or post your suggestions here


Crossfire 2.0 contains 43 exciting main story missions which extend the original game and will lead the player to an epic showdown. New exciting battles, cutscenes and discoveries await you. Are you read for it? Can you unlock the 44th mission (bonus mission)?

Crossfire 2.0 does not only show you the end of the official storyline, it also allows the community to develop and add new side stories. New bonus missions and side stories will be added to Crossfire in the next months and years. Be part of it... be part of the development... be part of our community.

I don't want to have a personal fight with anyone, but i will comment when i think something is wrong.

Obviously Marauder you are upset and angry, but i ask you to take a deep breath and calm down and have a think about what you are really angry about, maybe like me you will see it's not really worth getting your self angry over, i will be more than happy to give you my MSN addy should you want to discuss this any further just PM me.

Slayer, thats not worth the time. He just wrote a PM to me stating that he will not stop this crap. He will not respect any rules (not the ones we had... and not the ones of moddb) or other people work. All this guy and his friends can do is blaming, insulting and destroying other people work.

Yea, c'mon! Give it to me! Let's fill this whole area with ********! We will drown every useful post with personal, stupid childish runting! You and me together, we can do much more damage than me alone. That's how the crossfire community works and thats the best method to explain people who read this not to go on the server. This is a place to post comments and rate this mod. So...I guess this is my way to rate it! :D

....and yea, i can click this minus button as well, I'm just too tired now. Good night.

It also funny that you say that i have nothing to do with this, well wake up call Marauder, just by you posting on this forum which is in place for the CF server mod, you attack all that still stay.

I insult you, lmao now that's funny i just pointed out that you are making an idiot of yourself, this is your doing your own driven childish revenge, if you take what i say as an insult i suggest you look at your actions.

You managed to insult me in every post, although you have nothing really to do with this! :D Isn't it funny? I am really amused about your understanding of dignity! I am even now doing something constructive. Constructive for me. I'm pouring my anger on people which caused it.

Well its funny you should say that Marauder, Anger i understand very well as I'm sure you are already aware of, but i also understand that people do stupid things and make themselves look stupid in the process, under the branch of Anger, save your time and energy and use it on something more constructive, don't worry about us left behind we will survive as always.

Entertaining well no not for me anyway, but if you find enjoyment in insulting people that just shows how little a man you really are, i assume TRF have a new playing ground and maybe you should concentrate on that i would imagine that this should take priority over anything else, if you dislike OP and SWAT or us the community that much then go away and stop with all the stupid childish attacks on every forum that SWAT and OP finds themselves on, its very simple really you break rules on any server you get banned, and you did break rules so maybe you should now learn from this and hopefully you will be able to have fun and play the game without the fear of not having anywhere left to play on.

Thanks for the advice. My playground is here for now. Rules are not static. They can always be interpreted. Best interpretations come from those with the most strings. I'm angry, mostly because of op. I won't even try explain why. It just doesn't matter. He's so selfish, he wouldn't even try to understand it. You either. Just the thing alone that so many have the need to insult swat and op tells a lot. This is the language even op understands: pure destruction.

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

Lowest Rated (7 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…
