Welcome to the Bitfighter wiki pages. Bitfighter is a community project, so please help build these pages out where you can.
Bitfighter is a multi-player team-based space combat game. It's fast, fun, and frenetic. There are many game modes and unique maps. Players can (and do) create maps by using the built-in map editor. It's space exploration for warfare, construction, and beyond!
Bitfighter is designed for Windows, Linux, and OS X, and has an active development team.
