    X - The Threat PRE-ORDER NOW

    Pre-order now and receive a card game for free

    "All good things come in threes" - that's what the old saying tells us. And again it prooves right! Now that we know who will be responsible for publishing and when we are likely to hold the game in our hands here's more good news:
    You can pre-order X already in the Egosoft Online-Shop!
    As it is it is worth every cent however everyone who pre-orders will receive a free card game!

    Currently you can only order automatically via PayPal (that means you need a credit card), but a friendly mail to often solves many problems.

    Be among the first to play the newest and finest space game from Egosoft. If you order NOW you will also receive the limited edition X-Trumps card game for hours of fun for the rest of your family, while you can play X ;-) Delivery shall be on the day of release!

    Cardgame Preview

    X for PC-less days

    We already reported that everyone who pre-orders will receive a free and exclusive cardgame together with X. Now we were able to arrange a little preview to show you what these cards look like. Every set consist of the usual 32 cards and each card follows the same schematics; describing these certainly is not neccessary, we will just let the pictures do the explaining :)

    (Click to enlarge)

    Also this cardgame will be very interesting for collectors since not every set equals the others...
