To celebrate the project's 10-year anniversary, the WC Saga team announced today that it is returning to its roots as a total conversion for Conquest: Frontier Wars, released in 2001. Said Space Marshall Tolwyn Tolwyn: "Freespace 2 is based on outdated '90s technology. Conquest will really help the game move into the 21st Century and become the best product it can possibly be." As part of the change, many additional voice actors will be needed. Anxious fans can also preapply for the new beta test by hitting the Discuss link below and posting their qualifications.

It is about 200 years in the future and we have just discovered wormholes, and are learning how to navigate them. Wormholes connect galaxies and solar systems and allow you to fly across the entire breadth of the universe. Your goal as a commander in the Frontier Wars will be to explore and secure sector after sector of the galaxy.
- An engaging sci-fi storyline chronicles the battle between three unique races over 16 episodic missions.
- Simultaneously control up to 16 interplanetary battle maps through the use of wormholes.
- Exploit an all new dimension of strategic possibilities with Conquest’s exclusive supply line management features.
- Dispatch orders to up to six AI fleet admirals who implement your mission objectives, assess threats and react with organized tactics.
