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.
