The long awaited Shattered Worlds Freelancer mod has been released. A talented DevTeam from over 6 different Freelancer communities have gathered to work on this ambitious project. Collectively, the team combined modding knowledge and lessons learned from numerous mods/servers, they picked the best concepts from other mods; which were implemented, improved and further expanded. The entire game has been overhauled from the ground up to create a cutting edge balance scheme. The DevTeam also added hundreds of weapons/equipment items, and many new ships, with over 160 individual craft at present, many of which are exclusive to the mod. The end result is one of the most balanced and highest quality Freelancer modifications ever conceived. If you are a new player or an old player tired of normal Freelancer mods, Shattered Worlds has something for you. Come, try it for yourself. When you undock, you will see the next evolution of Freelancer!

The SW:WT 1.6 release is the next step in the story of Sirius on the Shattered Worlds Freelancer Server. It focuses heavily on realizing the changes to the face of the Sirius sector that have been played out by factions online in addition to adding more detail to the back story of the mod surrounding the mysterious group called The Guild.
There are ~50 completely new ships in the Creeping Darkness update, as well as the Corvettes and Cruisers being made available to non-faction members. There are 2 completely new systems which belong to The Guild and are part of the continuation of the SW:WT mod storyline but on top of that there have been major changes to existing systems that were driven by player role play. The Molly's have extended their influence and consolidated their presence in the Yorkshire system. In Kusari the Blood Empire has been fully realized with re-worked reputations and factions that reflect the House's conquest by the Blood Dragons in the War of Light. Missions against the Guild have also been added in several systems which will definitely test even the most well organized of fighter groups attempting them.
Creeping Darkness is overall a continuation of the very fine work resulting from the SW:WT development team's commitment to high quality graphics, balance and new game mechanics that has made the mod one of the best recognized total conversions for Freelancer.
