07.Dec.17 Free X-Weekend with release of XR VR and Updates for X Rebirth, X3TC and X3AP  (0 Comments)
Egosoft is happy to announce that our first Virtual Reality game is finally ready for release. Today marks the end of Early Access and the launch of X Rebirth VR Edition 4.30 on Steam and the Oculus Store.

With this launch also come a number of new features for XR VR, including improved HOTAS and Joystick support and a method to play in VR with mouse and keyboard. See different methods of playing X Rebirth VR Edition explained in this video:




Free X weekend and up to 80% discount

To celebrate the launch of X Rebirth VR Edition, we will make all X games available for free for the upcoming weekend on Steam. You can play during the weekend and try out all the games from Egosoft that you do not own yet. Best of all: If you decide you want to buy one of them, there are some massive discounts too. Go and check out our games on Steam here: EGOSOFT Games Overview.

End of Loyalty Discount: If you own X Rebirth and want VR Edition, buy NOW!

We are going to end the X Rebirth VR Edition loyalty discount on December 10th when this sale ends. So if you own X Rebirth and are considering X Rebirth VR Edition, you can buy it with a 30% loyalty discount added on top of the 20% discount during this weekend at a total of 50% off!

Updates for X Rebirth, X3: Terran Conflict and X3: Albion Prelude

X Rebirth 4.30: This update brings a number of improvements for controlling the game. HOTAS and Joystick improvements that we made during the XR VR development have been back ported to X Rebirth and come along with a default profile for some of the most popular sticks. Also controlling the game with gamepads got a lot easier thanks to a number of new features developed for X Rebirth VR Edition. Click here for a full list of features.

X3: Terran Conflict 3.4 and X3: Albion Prelude 3.3: These two updates bring a couple of low level engine improvements for better performance especially during large battles. We also added a borderless window mode and fixed some bugs. More about these updates here

EGOSOFT has put X Rebirth 4.21 in open beta today (details here) and will release a major update to X Rebirth VR edition after the weekend. We are sorry about delaying the X Rebirth VR Edition update, but there were some unforeseen complications with a Vulkan update and the new Oculus environment. Our update for X Rebirth VR Edition will have to be released together with the Oculus Update 1.18. Stay tuned!

25.Aug.17 XCON Twitch Channel  (30 Comments)
We are getting closer to XCON and our plans on how to reveal X4 online are also getting more concrete. It looks like we will have quite a few visitors in our small office. That's great and we think we are prepared for the masses; everybody should be able to play at least 10 minutes of any VR version they would like to test (Oculus, Vive, with VR controller, gamepad or with HOTAS and VR combined).

LIVE STREAM and Q&A:
Those of you who cannot join us in Würselen will be able to see a live stream of the event and of the X4 presentation. Because of the sheer number of visitors we will try to make one large presentation for everybody, and stream it to all of our rooms. You can ask questions from anywhere within the office AND from the internet through our new Twitch channel:

http://www.twitch.tv/egosoftofficial

See you on Saturday 15:00 CEST (13:00 GMT/UTC, 14:00 BST) !!

28.Jul.17 X Rebirth Virtual Reality Edition - Early Access launch, XCon 2017 and X4  (62 Comments)
Today Egosoft is pleased to announce the early access release of its first Virtual Reality game: the X Rebirth VR Edition.

The X Rebirth VR Edition is a new standalone game based on X Rebirth: Home of Light, completely redesigned and optimised for a Virtual Reality experience. Utilizing the latest advancement in VR technology with the Oculus Rift and Touch as well as the HTC Vive, the XR VR edition lets you experience space like you never did before.

View the exclusive XR VR Edition trailer here.

Features include:
  • A fully simulated economy in a huge universe – While based on X Rebirth: Home of Light, the universe and economy of X Rebirth VR Edition are specially designed for a Virtual reality experience. This is also the reason why the games are not savegame compatible.
  • A new graphics engine – The X Rebirth VR Edition will be the first title by Egosoft to utilise our new in-house developed engine, based on the innovative new Vulkan technology.
  • Take on a large variety of missions – Play as a freelancer, a pirate, a trader or search for your own adventures. Missions revolving around all aspects of the game will help you to find your way.
  • Pace and Balancing – All aspects of the game had to be rebalanced to create the best experience for the VR environment.
  • Switch between 3D and 2D mode on the fly – The user interface of XR VR Edition was specially designed to work entirely in an immersive first person VR cockpit experience and makes full use of Oculus Touch and Vive Controllers. However, if you feel like it, you can switch to your monitor and favourite input devices at any time.
  • Endless possibilites – Build your own ships and create an armada to fight your enemies or dominate the market with your factories and trade ships. You decide how you want to play.

TRADE, FIGHT, BUILD, THINK in the X Universe – the biggest sandbox this side of the galaxy.

From now on the XR VR Edition Early Access version is available from the Oculus Store supporting Oculus Rift and Touch and from Steam supporting the HTC Vive for a reduced early access price of 39.99 € or 39.99 USD respectively.


Early Access

Being our first Early Access game we want to bring the XR VR Edition to VR enthusiasts as soon as possible and get your opinion about our vision of a space game in VR. To help you getting started, we created the XR VR Edition - Early Access FAQ which provides answers to the most common questions.
