What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Freeman: Guerrilla Warfare is an innovative combination of tactical strategy game, fps, and world conquest game. There are certainly a lot of cool ideas to be generated and added in the future and our community is the best source for that. So Early Access provides us a great opportunity to work closely with our fans, gather feedback and watch the game grow together.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are planning to release from Early Access in Q2 2019.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“There are 6 main areas we will work on during Early Access:
Day-Night Cycle
More unique squads to choose from(mortar team, medic squad, etc)
More maps(towns and field battlegrounds)
More varieties of weapon such as grenade launcher
Generic missions(Kill a group of bandits, escort caravan, etc)
More smaller features(more squad commands, select commander, diplomacy options)”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Current state of Freeman: Guerrilla Warfare has a playable sandbox mode with 12 towns to conquer and defend, 3 field battlegrounds and 5 factions. FPS system, strategy/commanding system, inventory/equipment, levelling, trading, advanced AI and territory conquest/defend/management are all in there but need further polish.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we add more content and features.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are currently very active on Discord, facebook and twitter. And we will also be active on steam once we are on Early Access. We will keep our community informed with updates on daily basis and gather feedback and advices to improve the game with the community.”

Update Version 0.931 - Companions, optimization, AI...

Hello everyone,

We have released the official version of 0.931. We have fixed a lot of bugs based on the feedback of the test version, such as the extra large enemy's visual range, one bullet insta kill and so on. we also optimized the behavior of AI soldiers, such as when the squad encounters hostiles, units in the rear will also actively move to the front and engage, or for example when the player gives the move order, the engaging team will try their best to move instead of always lying on the ground. The main updates are as follows.

1. Companion System

Companions like Anna can be hired from town pubs or captured in battles. We added personality dialogues to each of our companions. Through dialogue, you can get interesting information about their background stories, personalities, hobbies and so on. At the same time, players can improve their friendliness by chatting with them and giving them gifts. Enhanced friendliness can unlock more conversations and interactions - such as love. We added the gift shop, and players need to discover each companion's preferences through dialogue in order to buy the right gifts. Except for these entertaining interactions, companions are also of great significance to the game-play itself. You can organize them into your own team like soldiers, or you can make them independent from you and let them lead their own army, helping you to attack and defend cities. Each companion has different skills. Some are suitable for combat, some are suitable for leading, and some are suitable for managing towns. These skills include leadership, tactics, financial skills, town management and so on. Different companions have different requirements for joining, some need a large commission, some requires a high reputation. After the campaign is complete, each companion will also have a corresponding ending. The stories are only 20% done, and we will keep working on it.

2. Enhanced world map faction AI

The AI faction forces will do more complex things. For example, to gather troops to attack a city in a group, to reconnoiter the enemy city, to revenge when their cities are taken, and so on.

3. Improved Soldier Customization System

More proficiency attributes have been added, such as grenade launcher, throwing and armor proficiency. At the same time, the accessory slots are added, which can be used to equip grenade launchers, first-aid kits, night vision goggles and grenades to soldiers.

4. Added a number of bandit factions

- Desert Bandits: Appear In the desert zone of Cherniv.

- Mountain Bandits: They appear in the southern mountains.

- Pirates: Appear near the coast.

- Cossack Rebels: On the territories of the Free Cossack Army.

- Snow Wolves: Appear in the northern snowland.

5. Added the beginning background selection

Players need to determine their initial attributes, equipment and troops in the form of questionnaires when starting a new campaign.

6. Improved World Map

We expanded the world map and made clear geographical distinctions. The southern part of Cherniv Island consists of plains, peninsulas and mountains. The central part is desertification zone. The northwest part is snowland. And the northeast part is forest and swamp.

7. The game's lore.

Based on the current lore, we have written Cherniv's history, the background stories of various factions and the corresponding stories of each companion.

8. Optimize the combat frame-rate

In previous versions, players reported significant frame drops during combat. We have a series of optimization for this problem. The frame rate in combat is greatly increased. At the same time, we also added the V-sync option, which can turn on and off in the settings panel.

Other important modifications.

- Pressing the Y key can speed up the time on the world map.

- Added desert, snow and mountain maps.

- Many hairstyles, face shapes and facial textures have been added.

- Optimize the lighting effects.

- Modified some awkward UI operations.

- 3D combat strategy map.

This version is compatible with v0.93(test) save files only, if you saved the game in other versions you will need to start a new game.

“This is a neat looking FPS / strategy / RPG hybrid, with several Steam reviewers drawing parallels between it and Mount & Blade.”
PC Gamer

“Freeman is like a mix of Mount & Blade and Total War with a shooter part like in Arma 3”

“It has already met my Mount & Blade expectations and is making ground towards Jagged Alliance in its own enthusiastic way.”
Strategy Gamer

About This Game

Freeman: Guerrilla Warfare is set in a chaos filled world occupied by battling factions, bandits and warlords who seek to rule the world.

The game is about your career as a faction leader: Start with minimal assets, you need to make money, build an army, wage wars against other factions and eliminate your rival forces with thoughtful strategies and fine marksmanship and eventually conquer the world. The game provides a completely different shooter experience which strikes a balance between intense first-person action and general strategy.

The game's innovative combat system blends tactical FPS with real-time strategy, allowing you to command an army, plan for tactics in the God view, while immersing in the intense firefight as a foot soldier, in the first person perspective.


  • FPS meets Sandbox Strategy Game
Start your career with almost nothing, you must make money, recruit soldiers, loot villages, fight bandits, attack territories and dominate the world. The game is a combination of challenging action and a wider strategic theater.

  • Shooter and Real-Time Strategy
Experience the unique combat system which blends real-time strategy with tactical first-person shooter. You are expected to strategically plan the movements and tactics of multiple squads in addition to having to be an eagle-eyed sharpshooter and possessing catlike reactions.

  • Realistic Combat Simulation
The game is about realism. Killing 100 enemies with only a pistol is not possible. You will be challenged by highly intelligent AI that is capable of advanced tactical maneuvers such as flanking, surrounding and even fake retreating, almost like what you would experience in real combat. Only carefully planned tactics, equipment and cooperation between squads can bring you victory. Are you up to the challenge?

  • High Re-playability
The random nature of starting points, enemy AI and objectives will make every battle feel different and challenging. There is no linear gameplay: You have the freedom to decide how to progress in the game, who to fight, what equipment and squads to use and how to dominate the world.
