Inferno: Alliance Reborn is part of the main Inferno series of games and mods based on the FreeSpace Universe that now make use of the FreeSpace Open engine, developed by the Source Code Project.

Inferno: Nostos is set decades after FreeSpace 2, as the GTVA struggles with the Earth Alliance and the Shivans' returning to threaten our species. Act 1 of this mod has been released in June, 2018.

Inferno: Nostos release thread

Inferno: Alliance takes the player seventeen years before FreeSpace 2, in a Sol system effectively cut off from the rest of Terran space.

Two different perspectives on the same universe.

Release thread on Hard-Light Productions

July 16th, 2003 - July 16th, 2023
Twenty years ago today, on July 16, 2003, Inferno was released. To celebrate the 20th anniversary, the entire Release 1 campaign has been voice acted. The voice acting features many actors and actresses who have contributed roles to previous mods, and it is also the first major release to include Vasudan voice processing by Gamma39er! Gamma39er did an incredible job to exactly reproduce the sound effects used for both the untranslated and translated Vasudan speech. Pay attention to the Vasudan characters in the campaign; they sound just like the ones from Volition.

A few other bugs have been fixed since the last rerelease in 2017, mainly mission event sequence breaks in uncommon situations, as well as a few model bugs.

Both the FSO Installer and Knossos have been updated. If you prefer to install it manually, download it here and here.

In the year 2400, contact with Sol was established, but with dire consequences: a war between the Earth Alliance and the GTVA. A year has passed and both sides have suffered heavy losses. With reports of black ships appearing in the Ross 128 system, the greatest fear of the GTVA has been realized: the Shivans have returned once again.

Released in 2003, Inferno was one of the most anticipated campaigns in the early years of HLP. A massive mod with 140 new models ranging from the smallest of fighters to the largest capital ships ever seen in FS2 so far.

Wrong mod, Dekker... INFASA is a FS1-ish mod which doesn't feature the famous gigantic warships. ;-)

Oh, I guess you're refering to the SSJ Gigas. Inferno SCP's mod profile has several screenshots showing the new Gigas (whose design is based on the Rakshasa).
