Description [en]

In short, Beyond the Red Line is...an undying, FREE-to-play endeavor that's unaffiliated with corporate entities.

Wikipedia :Beyond the Red Line was a total conversion for the game FreeSpace 2, based on the reimagined TV show Battlestar Galactica.
It allows players to fly into combat as either a Colonial Viper pilot or a Cylon raider.

Gameplay

BtRL planned to feature an original soundtrack with pieces inspired by Bear McCreary and Richard Gibbs' soundtrack. It also intended to include character-based gameplay and voice acting. The three-mission demo campaign follows a storyline that precedes the episode, "Scar", adding some background to the events of that episode. Online multiplayer, including "Deathmatch" and "Team vs. Team", is supported. The Mk II and VII Vipers are featured with authentic weaponry, flight controls, and semi-Newtonian physics (the development team stated that, "if you've seen it on the show, you can do it in BtRL").

Test [fr]

Test (Patch 2) :
La version actuelle est une démo mais le jeu est gratuit. Le jeu est superbe néanmoins sa prise en main nécessite un apprentissage. Pour l'instant nous nous sommes plutôt bataillé avec le réticule de visée dans un vide intersidéral, mais le jeu est une valeur sûre :)).

Commentaires généraux :
Suite à des tensions dans l'équipe (voir le lien "[Game Warden (BTRL Thread)]"), le projet a été abandonné. Il est néanmoins toujours disponible au téléchargement.
Une équipe s'est reformée autour du projet Diaspora (voir la fiche "Freespace 2 SCP - [mod Diaspora]" dans le Bottin) dont une première version est sortie en Septembre 2012.
