11.Feb.20 X-Soundtracks now available on Steam
Attention music fans! As you may have already noticed, Steam has recently redesigned and improved its system for selling and listening to game soundtracks. Soundtracks can now be viewed, downloaded and played directly in the Steam Library. In the context of these changes we were also active: From now on many X games soundtracks of the past years are available individually on Steam.


To celebrate the new features, Steam is also currently hosting a big soundtrack sale, in which we are also participating. Take advantage of the strong discounts and immerse yourself in the soundworlds of Alexei Zakharov, which have been delighting X players for years.

All soundtracks include the lossless FLAC format in addition to the conventional MP3 files. In the Steam client's music settings, look for the option "Download high-quality audio files".

If you own the Collector's Editions of X Rebirth and X4: Foundations, you can now view the included soundtracks directly in the Steam library. However, due to the new product structure on Steam, you have to download them again.



The following X soundtracks are now available on Steam:
Enjoy our soundtracks and have fun in space!

17.Oct.19 Update 2.60 release and delay announcement for X4: Split Vendetta  (54 Comments)
We're happy to announce the release of the update 2.60 for X4: Foundations. The main changes and fixes include:
  • significantly improved in-game economy
  • better navigation, both for the player guidance system and for AI ships
  • updated Logical Station Overview and Station Info menu
  • added Russian voice recordings
  • a whole host of smaller fixes and improvements

You can find the full change log here. We would like to thank you for your valuable and helpful feedback during the beta testing phase of this update.

We also need to inform you that the previously announced expansion X4: Split Vendetta and the associated big 3.0 update for X4: Foundations won't, unfortunately, hit their original targeted release timeframe of Q4 2019. We're now targeting a new release date within the first quarter of 2020 for both the X4: Split Vendetta expansion and the 3.0 update. Once we get a little closer, we will be able to announce a more specific date.

We're very sorry about this delay and would particularly like to apologise to all owners of the X4: Foundations Collector's Edition, which includes the two future expansions. During the development of the X4: Split Vendetta expansion and the 3.0 update, a number of things have emerged that we really want to see implemented, optimised and fixed in time for the next big step forward for X4: Foundations in order to meet our own expectations as well as yours. We simply need a bit more time to do so.

In order to give you some more insight into the current development of our game, we will shortly be announcing a date for an AMA on Reddit with Bernd Lehahn, Managing Director of EGOSOFT, where you can ask your questions about the X series and specifically about X4: Split Vendetta and the 3.0 update. We're also planning to do another live stream on our Twitch channel with Bernd and other team members where we'll be showing off 2.60 and will answer more of your questions.

Watch this space for announcements of specific dates for both the upcoming AMA as well as the live stream.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.

06.Aug.19 Announcing X4: Split Vendetta and update 3.0  (179 Comments)
X4: Split Vendetta is the next chapter in the X4: Foundations story. This is the first big expansion for X4, greatly increasing the size of the universe and introducing two new Split family clans along with their economy, new ships, weapons and station modules.

Along with the Update 3.0 to X4: Foundations, the X4: Split Vendetta expansion brings exciting new missions and adventures to the game. New gamestarts allow an even more varied experience in the biggest sandbox this side of the galaxy.

TRADE with the Split families or FIGHT against them. BUILD your own station designs based on the new modules and THINK carefully on your path through the new diplomatic missions.


Both "X4: Split Vendetta" and the free 3.0 update to "X4: Foundations" will be released in the fourth quarter of 2019. "X4: Split Vendetta" is the first of two expansions that will be available to owners of the "X4: Foundations Collector's Edition".

Watch the trailer for "X4: Split Vendetta" here.

For the first time ever, EGOSOFT will have its own booth at gamescom in Cologne, the world's largest event for computer and video games. You can meet us from August 20 to August 24 2019 in the new "Indie Village" in hall 10.2. Drop by and take a first look at the "X4: Split Vendetta" expansion and the big 3.0 update to "X4: Foundations" before they are released together in the fourth quarter of 2019. We are looking forward to meeting you at gamescom!
