So what is this free game all about? Well, Freespace 2 is arguably one of the greatest space combat games ever created but it did release all the way back in 1999, yes, 20 years ago. Back in the day, the game boasted awesome graphics for that time, but it was the combat and massive battles, as well as the mission structure and story that really made Freespace 2 such an unforgettable classic.

Now, you can pick up Freespace 2 from GOG for free by following this link.

Before we get to the game’s description and blocky trailer, you need to know that there are mods for Freespace 2 that make the game look a lot better. It still won’t look modern, but a bit of a graphical upgrade through some mods such as the ones you can find here helps and the game still has a passionate community.

About Freespace 2

[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”#85E7E9″ class=”” size=”20″] The year is 2367, thirty two years after the Great War. Or at least what YOU thought was the Great War. The seemingly endless tide of Shivan capital ships, bombers and fighters with super-advanced technology was nearly overwhelming. As the Terran and Vasudan races finish rebuilding their decimated societies, a disturbance lurks in the not-so-far reaches of the Gamma Draconis system. Your nemesis has arrived… and they are wondering what happened to their scouting party…


The game continues on the story from Descent: FreeSpace, once again thrusting the player into the role of a pilot fighting against the mysterious aliens, the Shivans. While defending the human race and its alien Vasudan allies, the player also gets involved in putting down a rebellion of those elements of Vasudan (Hammer of Light) and Human (Neo Terran Front) forces which don’t want to cooperate with one another.
