Freespace 2 screenshot of a ship being upgraded

While practically ancient by today's standards, Freespace 2 is still one of the most engrossing and enjoyable space sims out there. As such, I am more than happy to say that Freespace 2 is also currently entirely free to grab!

Simply head on over to GOG, snatch yourself a copy, and you'll be able to play Freespace 2 whenever you want and for however long you want. The only catch is that I'm a little bit late with this article, and so the whole promotion will end in a mere twelve hours. In other words, you might want to hurry up!

That little bit of warning aside, if you find yourself wanting just a bit more out of Freespace 2, it's also worth mentioning that there are quite a few mods and total conversions available. I won't tell you which ones to grab as the last time I've played Freespace 2 was well over a decade ago, but some of them have quite a few good reviews behind them, so it might be worth checking out once the base game starts getting a bit plain.

You can learn more about Freespace 2, as well as secure yourself a copy while the promotion is still running, over at GOG. Have fun the universe!
