"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.

Are you talking about a collective insect like species with a highly evolved intelligence then? Maybe the Dom' Kavash are a highly civilized species with advanced capabilities that allow them to move around the galaxy with the intentions of seeding other planetary systems with life unlike our own which could be their big secret! Hence fourth in which case the nomads had been created for that very specific purpose to keep our noses out of their businesses on the very reason of which the colonized systems were almost destroyed!

Hello I have an idea to crossfire 1.9, it looks like the Dom'Kavash are insects or parasites, and then they must have a queen or brain who controls them all.

good idea... hold it until you see what we have planned for CF1.8
you are partly right and partly the dom kavash story will be reveiled with CF1.8 but there are also plans for cf1.9 showing even more

One thing I can already say... we have decided not to show you how the DomKavash look like eventhough we have working models already. Reason for this is story related. You are allowed to dock at DK stations but you will only interact with automatic terminals there while the other rooms of the station are still closed. In CF1.9 you will get the chance to proove worthy to get access to the hidden areas of the stations and to see where the DKs are living.

Question about the 1.9, are you going to make it as an add on so we don't have to uninstall and start a new game?

Huor Feb 23 2009, 3:26pm replied:

No we are going to make it that way you have to uninstall your operating system to start the game *kidding*

First lets release CF 1.8 and than lets see what comes with CF 1.9 :)

And before you gonna ask again: Its released when its finished and OP think its the time to release it!

Have faith fellow community members. CF will be released when its done. It is true that CF has been said to be released since loooooong ago and keeps getting post poned. But there are good reasons. If it wasn't post poned this long then all the bugs wouldn't be sorted, new ships systems and graphics wouldnt be in it. I have been waiting for CF 1.8 since end 2007. The list of changes then and the list of changes now differs allot. I cant wait for it to be released though I will wait for it as long as it requires. Just have faith ;)

TO OP - not trying to rush you but its best to set a release date if you are definite that the mod is near 99% finishing touches. Post poning hurts allot :(

This is not a gaming company which has to publish their unfinished work just because the publisher wants it... we do quality work and will release it when everything is done... no matter how much time it does take.

and that small movie is nothing but a teaser to one of our concepts (dynamic nebulas with real dust instead of this stupid FL nebulas which simply pop up).

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…
