10 years ago on March 4th, 2003, Freelancer was released. To this day, Freelancer remains to be the reference in space action and role playing games.

Chances are that this year will be a very interesting one for the game. Interest in the genre is rising again and we might see some major mod releases this year. Also, it has been rumored that a digital release of the game could happen very soon.

However, we also need to take a look at the more distant future. Freelancer is getting older and so is our website. Hopefully this year, I will try to get away from Xoops (our current CMS) and relaunch the website using a major forum software (phpBB or SMF) as the main website element. We will keep the Wiki and the Forge.
As regards the site content, I think our strength is covering space games with support for modding and private servers. So far, there have been almost no reasonably good games in this segment since Freelancer. With Star Citizen however, this might change. If there will be proper support for modding and private servers, expect Star Citizen to become a major focus of our website. Also, Infinity might be another future game that we could cover.

Back to Freelancer, we want to celebrate today's birthday with the release of the Freelancer Multiplayer Beta to all registered users of the Starport. Follow this link to get to the beta forums (registered users only). Thanks a lot to our community member "runod" for providing the beta files!

I hope you're right on all counts Bandito! A big thanks to all you guys who run the starport, it's unlikely that we would be talking about ten years of freelancer or the future without your efforts.

Why the #$%% you, elite #$%%, decided how to use the beta without other players? Why you were hiding it? Why do you think that you're better than the others?

And this, friends, is how you get a ban. Cheers, Nova.

Happy Birthday, Freelancer!

Thanks to Citizen Skotty (via The Starport) for noticing that March 4th was the 10th anniversary of Freelancer, Chris Roberts’ last game and a title largely recognized as the last true AAA space sim. We’ll be putting together some special behind-the-screens information about how Freelancer was made for the RSI Museum in the near future!
