Meet the Egosoft crew and learn about X4 and the XR VR edition at the XCon 2017
There’s only a month left to the Gamescom (22th to 26th August 2017), in Cologne, Germany. While this is usually the time and place to present new games, we thought about doing it a bit differently this year by reviving an almost forgotten event, some of our longterm fans may remember as the XCon
. Last held in 2004, shortly after the release of X2: The Threat, the X-Convention (short: XCon) is an event to meet the Egosoft Crew in their natural habitat, the Egosoft HQ, and learn about the newest developments in the X-Universe. You can get some impressions from the XCon 2004 here
So what can you expect this time?
We will give you an exclusive first insight into our next big project: X4
. We will present our latest milestone, and talk about the intended gameplay, but also about what we have planned for the future. Additionally, you will get the chance to play the current early access version of the XR VR Edition
with the different VR Headsets, discuss with us your favourite aspects of the X-Universe games and learn about the secrets of game development. (Hint: It has something to do with pizza!)
If you would like to attend the XCon 2017, please let us know which date (26th/27th August 2017) would suit you best and apply for a seat on this webpage: https://www.egosoft.com/x4/signup.php
Registration ends August 13th 2017
. After this date we will inform you if you got a seat and send all the necessary information to find us.
We hope to meet many of those who we only know by their forum nicknames and are eager to show and discuss with you the history, present and future of the X-Universe.
If you’re a member of the press and would like to attend the presentation of X4 and the XR VR Edition at the Egosoft office (26th/27th August 2017) or would like to schedule a private meeting with us at the Gamescom (23rd to 25th), please get in contact with us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those of you who will not be able to attend, we hope to be able to stream at least a part of the event online. Please understand that as the plans are not finalised yet, we cannot share any more details at the moment. In any way, you will of course read about the XCon 2017 in the next edition of the X-Universe News.
