The Freelancer variants that were teased so many months ago are now live! And it looks like the variants should show up in the hangar.

No one has won yet it just has the two finalists in the hanger. The finale is tomorrow, they put the ships in the hanger so when we vote we get a better idea of the way the ships look. I can't decide which Freelancer variant to get.

It's a great idea to add these finalist ships to the hangar, it's one thing to see them on video - another one in your own hangar, in-engine.

 

Btw, they also added an ingame coat in the pledge store, for 5$. There's no picture but it's descriptions says: 

The limited Freelancer vintage UEE Environment Coat. Wind proof, capable of weathering difficult atmospheric conditions. For when you aim to misbehave!

Damnit, they are reading us like a book. I always aim to misbehave! It must be a brown coat.

You can learn all the math in the 'Verse, but you take a boat in the air that you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurtin' 'fore she keens.

Both ships will end up in game anyways. I love them both but if i had to chose one i would have to say shards ship. It just looks like the raw definition of a gunship. The funny thing is back when they were designing the guns i thought that shard was crap and had no chance. I am glad i ate my words on that one lol

 

edit: wtf can you not go inside the TNGS ships in hanger?

I <3 the MAX

 

Makes me want to buy a Freelancer again, but I have to restrain myself from doing so. Most likely getting one of the TNGS ships later on and my Connie will make up for the Freelancer.

Nope. Although if you get really creative with the 3rd person camera you can see tiny glimpses of the inside - there are seats and texturing and stuff in there, but you can't see much.  Kind of silly they didn't leave all the doors open even if they weren't going to make them interactive.

I have a Freelancer and I'm torn.

 

The max looks nice, the explorer appeals to the part of me that wants to say "sod trading, reach for the stars" and the MIS looks badass.

 

But they all feel like compromises.  I'll happily pay for any of the upgrades from my stock 'Lancer, but none of them are doing quite enough to sway me.

I'll definitely get the Freelancer Max in the game, it will be my dedicated hauler - that cargo hold looks huge, and the Lancer is an awesome ship. 

 

Dunno about other variants, maybe the Dur for the exploration even though I think a 300i might be more interesting for that job, simply so I can make a run if I encounter pirates or other hostile players/NPCs.

Keep in mind the MIS is a limited sale and will not be in the shop after Monday the 16th of this month.

 

I upgraded my base Freelancer to a DUR and purchased the MIS outright. Had to have it. The Freelancer has been my favorite ship overall for a long time.
