Kind of surprised this game isn't at Abandonia since it's not for sale anywhere and seems abandoned with no sequel on the way. Although maybe it's still sitting in Microsofts IP dungeon lol.

I'm a huuuuuuuuuuuge Freelancer fan (so much so I run a fb fan group haha). Fans still mod it to this day creating cool stuff but somehow this great old game never got a sequel.

There's a number of 'similar games' out there that are pretty good (eg I play the X games) but the number 1 closest I've seen yet is a brand new game called Rebel Galaxy Outlaw. It's CRAZY how close to Freelancer it is. The main character is even named Juno lol! It's got planetary landings and space bars, even optional mouse steering like Freelancer had.

This guy has done a good video review of it:

Here's some sexy screens I found around the net:

It's funny, there I was getting all excited about Rebel Galaxy Outlaw and then someone over in the Freelancer Facebook group posts a video of an even more Freelancer looking game called Starpoint Gemini 3!

I'd noticed the previous Starpoint Gemini games before as they had space combat, trading on stations and even some planet landing stuff however they still felt a bit different eg more of a big ship tactical combat game. However for this new game it looks like they've totally gone in a pure Freelancer style fighter game direction (which I think has upset some of their past fanbase but hey its great for us FL fans haha) with all the cool FL stuff like landing on planets and space stations to trade and visit their seedy space bars for work! It also has an interesting (unfinished) side game where you take control of a small probe infiltrating derelicts and space stations avoiding security systems that sort of reminds me of some of X2 – The Threat’s side missions.

The game is still in early access on steam so naturally it lacks polish but is already looking absolutely gorgeous!! The only fault I have with its otherwise stunning graphics are the very plastic mannequin like people but apparently the devs have said they'll be fixing that.

This guy has done a good video preview of it:

We've got another Freelancer like game coming lol! This time it's Everspace 2!

The sequel is looking even more amazing than the first one did. The whole rogue like randomly generated galaxy put me off playing the last one but it sounds like they're going proper open world detailed pre-made galaxy like good old Freelancer this time around! And the planet surface areas look awesome too! Naturally it made it's Kickstarter funding total without too much trouble!
