DescriptionAs a pilot in the Gallactic Terran Alliance (GTA), you've known the Vasudans as the enemy for a long time. But things are about to change. An unknown menace, with technology beyond both ours and Vasudans, are destroying both sides. And now, old enemies must unite to fight this common enemy, and the dissenters and traitors on both sides.
Descent: Freespace is a space dogfight simulator. The game features a vast amount of weapons, missiles and bombs, as well as large capships. It also has online multiplayer. Take fighters and bombers on attack, recon, escort, and sweep missions against enemy capships and fighters and bombers. Defend your own capships and other assets. Your rating and performance is noted after every mission, with suggestions (if applicable). You can call in reinforcements (if available), and your wingmen actually do fight intelligently, as there can be dozens of fighters flying about.

DVD versionThe multi-lingual DVD edition of Freespace was bundled with Creative DVD drives. Not only subtitles, but all the videos and speech were translated to other languages.
ReferencesThe section in the Freespace manual explaining how to create pilots and manage the pilot roster has a sample screenshot featuring several pilot names. One of those names is "BlueHair". This is a reference to the Wing Commander series, one of Freespace's inspirations and also one of its rivals. BlueHair was the semi-official nickname of the player character in the first two Wing Commander games.
TitleFreespace was renamed to Descent: Freespace to avoid "same name" issues with a disk utility. However, in Europe, the Descent series had never sold perticularly well, so the publishers decided to rename the game to Conflict: Freespace in that region, thereby avoiding the Descent association. Subsequent Freespace titles don't use either of the prefixes.
