Battlestar Galactica: Beyond the Red Line game - it's FREE

Posted on Tuesday, Apr 03 2007 @ 17:21 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Some guys have created an opensource standalone mod for Freespace 2 based on the Battlestar Galactica universe. In the Battlestar Galactica: Beyond the Red Line game you get the chance to frag some Cylons.

They've just released a demo of this game which is 380MB big. It's powered by the Freespace 2 engine but you don't need this game as this mod is entirely stand-alone. There's a version for Windows and Mac - a Linux build is coming soon.

Features:
  • Accurately detailed high-resolution ship models
  • High quality, originally engineered audio
  • Authentic, original in-game soundtrack, in addition to pieces by Bear McCreary and Richard Gibbs
  • Original characters and voice acting
  • A three mission single player campaign depicting never-before-seen events, interwoven with and true to the series’ storyline
  • Head online and go head-to-head with your friends—and foes—in intense multiplayer missions including Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, and others
  • Exciting Viper combat with authentic weaponry and flight controls


  • Here are some places where you can download this game:
  • Game Warden
  • File Front
  • The Cylon Base
  • Internode
  • Mod BB
  • 4 Players
  • Game Warden (the Mac version)


  • I also found a couple of trailers on YouTube:





    The graphics aren't really top-notch but considering that this is a free open-source game it certainly looks very impressive.
