"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 - 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)?

Hello, project (continuum) was cancelled on Swat, going separate way (try search here on moddb for "Freelancer continuum"). But that activity lasted only a short time, now it is more as one year without any updates.

There were some disagreements about Continuum more than 1 year ago which led to a split of the development team. Since that the project was kept on ice.

We focused on Crossfire 2.0 (and clearly needed that time to get everything balanced and running) but Continuum is still not entirely off the table. Im fairly sure that sooner or later boredom catches us and we start telling new stories about the great Freelancer universe.

Things I really wanted to See in Continum,

* Dynamic Asteroids
*Every House With There own Unique Trade Lane and Jump Gate.
*And At Every Gate There is a battleship of that house as security, cuz its roleplaying Game after all and should Give the feeling of that,
*maybe Every system Requires a Key to enter it with jump gate and that key is expensive to buy, like a license.
*Fuel System on ship. you cant cruise if there is no fuel.
*battleship patroling , lots of traffic to make systems alive and growing.
*Just Keeping Everything Furistic and Suspensive.

I hope you will consider some of these in you mod, Thanks. :D

With this it looks you may have some issue with UAC which prevented correctly install CF fonts.

Please look here: Swat-portal.com

And if it will be not enough, then you will need reinstall game and chose another HUD (do not use this modern, use this one classic)

p.s.: is better ask for help on Swat-portal.com , our support is much faster there.

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…
