Originally created by Volition Inc to run Freespace 2, the FS2_Open engine has been radically improved so that the engine can now compete with modern space combat simulation engines.

Official news updates on the game's development have bee relatively quiet, but as you might have seen there is continual chatter on the Discord channel. Our beta testers have provided valuable feedback for all three story campaigns, and we are hard at work polishing and improving the game.

We also want to share the work of our newest modeler, Limbert, who has made stunning cockpits for TIEs and the X-wing (along with a new BFF Freighter)! These cockpits are fully functional and integrated with HUD gauges (ie, RTT), so the player can truly feel like a star fighter pilot. Other polishing efforts include visual enhancements, lighting tweaks, and scripting improvements--all aimed to fully capture the feel of the Original Trilogy. We also want to acknowledge the work of ngld and co. for continually improving Knossos. We have used Knossos for beta testing and it will be our primary distribution platform for our public release.

Finally, we want to thank you, the fans of Fate of the Galaxy, for your patience, excitement, and support! We are not far away from our public release, but in the meantime we wanted to share our first trailer! May the Fourth be with you!

Is the updated freespace open engine anything like the modified Starlancer engine used in Freelancer or could it be made to look like that.

Yes. While only one standalone game has been released so far (The Babylon Project mentioned above), there are other total conversions being worked on, like Diaspora.

The engine is free to use for any non-commercial project. You can't sell anything made using it but beyond that, you can just download it and get to work if you wanted to.
