reeSpace 2 is a sequel to Descent: FreeSpace, covering a period 32 years after the time of the original game. This time the Vasudans and the Terrans have licked their wounds and reached a tentative peace. The two are working together to repair the destruction left by the war with the Shivans. However, a rebellion forces the allies to the edges of their territory, where they encounter the Shivans once again.
The plot also delves into the realms of the Ancients, a lost race tied to the Shivans. In FreeSpace 2, scientists discover a map of the Ancients' dominion with locations of previously undiscovered jump nodes that provide instant transit to distant star systems. Several ships enter those portals, but one does not return.
The game features stunning real-time in-nebula missions with sensor interference and electrical storms; ship battles that include new beam weapons and antifighter flak cannons; 12 new ship classes, including the Corvette-class capital ships; two single-player missions, plus one training mission; two multiplayer missions, including the new 12-player Dogfight mode; and full PXO.net support for multiplayer use, including chat rooms, game lists, and pilot stats rankings.
