The DC Universe According to Grey is my love letter to and personal take on the DC Comics Universe. It is a humongous, sprawling representation of the DCU with a Bronze Age flavor, yet with modern narrative sensibilities, and it is packed with four color heroes. This mod for Freedom Force v The Third Reich, the greatest superhero game of all time, features an absolutely massive roster of both heroes and villains, including most characters you can imagine from the DC Universe. This mod has everyone from the most famous, like Batman and Superman, to the ludicrously obscure, like most of Hawkman's and the Atom's rogues' galleries. It also features multiple universe-spanning adventures, full campaigns that you can play with different teams of heroes.

Not only that, but you can play as literally anyone included in the mod in the game's incredible sandbox mode! Have you always wondered who would win in a fight between Superman and Captain Marvel or between the Justice League and the Legion of Superheroes? Well wonder no longer! You can throw any combination of characters into the arena, taking the controls yourself, or watching as a spectator! Curious if the Teen Titans could take on their mentors or if Batman's villains could tackle Flash's Rogues? Well, put those questions to the test!

The mod was originally released unfinished 10 years ago and has been languishing in purgatory since then. I have recently decided to come back, update, massively expand, and re-release my magnum opus. There is a lot in the works. Follow the mod or visit Freedom Reborn to see how it develops and to have some input on the shape it takes!

Features:

  • 6 (and counting!) widely different, original campaigns packed full of adventure!
  • Hundreds and hundreds of characters, from the famous to the obscure!
  • Maps for some of DC's famous locations!
  • Take control of teams of four (or more!) heroes or villains!
  • Use unique powers and abilities!
  • Face off with enemies and friends in the Rumble Room!
  • Smash entire cities in your battles!
  • Use your destructible environment as a weapon!
  • Classic and heroic flavor to characters and storytelling!
  • Add your own stories and adventures!

Campaigns:

  • Batman and the Bat-Family
  • Justice League (including a classic crossover with the JSA)
  • The Atom
  • Hawkman
  • Aquaman
  • Detective Comics Anthology (Featuring the Question and a host of guest stars!)
  • Green Arrow and friends

Howdy folks! Those of us in the FF community have decided to try and contact the former members of Irrational Games in the hopes that they might be willing and able to release the source code for the Freedom Force games to their fans, who are still loving and creating for their games 15 years after their release. We have found that much of the old team have created a new company, and I think we've got a method of contacting them. We'll see.

I don't know how realistic this dream is, but it occurred to me that such things have happened in the past. In order to demonstrate that there are still folks out there who care about these games, We've also created a petition to gather support. Please take a moment, check it out and sign it. Please give me some feedback about how I can improve the petition if anything occurs to you!

We could finally fix some of the problems with FFvTTR if we had the sourcecode, and we could make modifications to the games themselves, which would be amazing. I hope you'll hope with me, and maybe something great will come out of this wild idea.

Do you have a Batman Returns catwoman model? I had one in the past but sadly i lost the whole package. It also had a custom made version of myself that looked very good.

Howdy Mr. Nygren! I don't have a mesh or skin like that, but if you were to post on FreedonReborn.net, I'm sure someone there would be able to help you track one down.

That is great! However I just painfully discovered that Third Reich does not work on my PC since the game is so old and Steam does not really bother with patching games of that era. I suppose I could probably get a better version from GOG, but I am pretty partial to Steam. So for now I will have to go without. This looks really good though. Woops, replied as a new comment... sorry. ^_^!

Thanks Ravensholm! I'm sorry that FF isn't working for you. If you'd like, you could head over to the FF community at freedomreborn.net, and they can probably help you get it working. I have the Steam version and Windows 10, and it works fine for me after some tweaking. First off, you might try running FF in compatibility mode for XP Service Pack 2 or 3. If that fails, the GOG version is also super cheap. I hope you can get it working!

Damn... I had the original, not sure about the Third Reich and I keep seeing it on sale on Steam, but was kind of ehhh… about it. I am assuming all these new characters for it have their own actual abilities from the comics or are they just window dressing and still using the premade attacks that would only fit what was already in the base game of Freedom Force to begin with? I did not play much of the original nor am I highly knowledgeable in comics, so I simply can not tell by the videos and or screen shots. Thank you.

Howdy Ravensholm, and thanks for the interest! Yes indeed, each and everyone of these characters has custom abilities, powers, fx, and art. They are completely created and comic-faithful. For example, I actually just added some new sound effects for Aquaman's telepathic attacks, using the sound from the classic cartoons. Superman has heat vision, freeze breath, super strength, and everything else you'd expect, and so on.

FFvTTR is a great game, but it is a little weaker than the first. What makes it so fantastic, though, is how easy it is to mod and how much amazing material the community has created for it. You can check out my other mods to see a few other examples, and you can visit the FF community at www.freedomreborn.net to see even more.
