Freeworlds: Tides of War is a fan built Star Wars total conversion mod for Digital Anvil's Freelancer game that was released several years ago. When fans began to make mods for Freelancer, one of the many things people were keen on seeing was a Freelancer mod based on the Star Wars universe developed by George Lucas. Freeworlds and Tides of War were the answer to this outcry. The development team of both mods have now joined forces to create an epic new Star Wars TC, Freeworlds: Tides of War.

Really nice mod. When you get farther you should ask microsoft for a standalone license, because this is not freelancer any more, its at totally different game!

They would have to pay loadshit of money to get a standalone license and I think LucasArts won't agree with that.
