Description

EGOSOFT is one of Germany’s leading game developers. Its team of industry veterans and dedicated game enthusiasts entered the international stage with the widely-acclaimed X-Beyond the Frontier space simulation game in 1999. EGOSOFT is now exclusively dedicated to setting new standards in the space game genre and continuing to improve the gameplay experience for fans of the X Universe. X games are space simulations played as action games from 1st person in a living breathing universe. TRADE FIGHT BUILD THINK is the common headline above all X games. Where the X games are unique is in their depth when it comes to simulating an entire universe of NPC ships and stations including a realistic economy. X games simulate a huge real "bottom-up" universe. Hundreds of stations and thousands of ships, trade goods between each other. Prices change based on supply and demand. Resources are mined, refined into metals transported to higher level factories with workers that consume food and produce even higher level goods. All ultimately leading to tech products at the top.

History

In 1999, with X: Beyond the Frontier, EGOSOFT established a universe which has since grown and developed into a great space simulation game series. With games such as X2: The Threat, X3: Reunion, X3: Terran Conflict, X Rebirth and X4: Foundations, EGOSOFT has created one of the largest sci-fi universes, and the biggest sandbox this side of the galaxy.
