Freedom Fighters, originally titled Freedom: The Battle For Liberty Island is set in an alternate history. The player takes the role of Christopher Stone, a plumber-turned American Resistance movement leader who fights against the Red Army that invades and occupies New York City. It was developed by IO Interactive, using a modified version of the Hitman 2: Silent Assassin game engine.

Emulation Information


Freedom Fighters has a native 16:9 display option, but it requires enabling it in its internal options and setting Dolphin's Aspect Ratio graphics setting to "Force 16:9". Using the widescreen hack with this title is not recommended.

Increasing the internal resolution can cause tears in load screens and in a few cutscene graphics.
