"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 continues the epic adventures of Edison Trent. Get ready for a brand new experience in a breathtaking and extraordinary environment. This mod is the unofficial sequel to Freelancer with the most stunning graphics and worlds you have ever seen. Jump into an atomspheric universe full of surprises, challenges incredible adventures. Experience the awesome gameplay, highest quality and unique features of Crossfire.
With several hundred thousand downloads, four Mod Award Nominations and it's very large fan community Crossfire has developed to one of the most favorite Singleplayer and Multiplayer mods for Freelancer.
The in 2019 released "Lost Fleet" update opened opportunities to release more story related content for Freelancer Crossfire without interfering with the main story of Crossfire. The new focus was set primarily on the Sol Sector and we have started to introduce new bonus missions based on this specific region of space. The result was the re-introduction of an old/lost faction and the discovery of many new systems, all of them with a very unique style.
Lost Fleet ended with a cliffhanger, with the player being stranded on a space station in the middle of nowhere.
Blackstar starts right there.
New story content will explain left open questions and introduce a new threat, not only to humanity.
Multiple new singleplayer story missions will lead Trent into new adventures.
More detail work will be added to the previously introduced "Lost Fleet" content, while players finally can get their hands on previously restricted ships via a new event-type multiplayer feature.
Blackstar will be released in January 2020.
I am aware that players on our Forum and our Discord server speculated with an early release for X-mas 2019. That won't be possible.
The amount of new content unfortunately won't allow us to release it any sooner but the final result for sure will be worth the wait.
There are more content updates planned for 2020.
Another big update called "The Colony" will be released in summer 2020 followed by another, yet unnamed story update in Q4 2020. More info about that later.
I'd like to thank the Crossfire community for their ongoing support. It is amazing that after almost 17 years people are still enjoying the game and help us to make the game even better.
Merry Christmas and a safe flight, Pilots.
