Microsoft has released some screenshots of its upcoming 3D space trade and combat simulation, FreeLancer. The game is set in the 30th century and features 3D real-time character interaction. The player can choose to become a mercenary or a merchant in order to gain fame and fortune. FreeLancer will feature an interstellar marketplace that changes dynamically with regard to supply and demand, as well as a persistent reputation that the player must be aware of during the game, as the actions the player takes will affect future interactions. We'll be seeing the game later today and will be able to bring you a more in-depth preview at that time. Until then, take a look at these screenshots.
