FreeOrion is a turn-based strategy game of galactic conquest inspired by the Master of Orion games. As is typical for 4X games, players have to explore their surroundings, colonize new planets, manage their economies, research spectacular technologies, build up military might and conquer their neighbors, and ultimately, the entire galaxy. Features specific to FreeOrion are the diverse fantastical species and peculiar history of the game galaxy, the design of new ships with a multitude of hulls and ship parts available after research, and the possibility of technological victory after researching transcendence.

The game's source code is licensed under the GPL v2 and its media under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 license.[1][2]
