We're thrilled to announce that our newest expansion, X4: Timelines, as well as the major X4: Foundations 7.00 update are set to launch on June 20, 2024.


X4: Foundations 7.00 is a monumental upgrade, introducing a host of new features and enhancements that will elevate the X4 experience. Players can look forward to reimagined Teladi and Argon capital ships, new sectors and landmarks, a revamped external camera system, and the "Existential Crisis" endgame challenge. Continuous engine improvements, extended button remapping options, and a new controller profile will further refine gameplay. As with previous updates to X4, the switch to 7.00 is free of charge for existing owners of X4: Foundations. Find out more about the changes and new elements in our 7.00 Public Beta news and our 7.00 Trailer.

X4: Timelines, the new expansion, brings a revolutionary approach to the X4 universe. It features a thrilling storyline centred around Harper Donel, a trader whose encounter in the border territories will shake the foundations of the universe. Embedded in the new X4: Timelines storyline, you'll find a wide range of scenarios in which you will experience the many different aspects of X4 gameplay. Playing these scenarios will also unlock new missions within the X4: Timelines storyline, and bonuses for your wider X4 sandbox universe - among them reimagined, classic ships from X Universe history.

Mark your calendars for June 20, 2024, and prepare to embark on this exciting new journey through space and time. Wishlist X4: Timelines today, to be notified once it's available.

[Feedback] Boarding Times
In 7.00 Beta 7 the boarding times for the infiltration phase were adjusted to solve a reported issue where Experienced marines would take much longer then rookies. As such we would like to ask you for feedback on the new times (see forum thread).

Don't forget to add X4: Timelines, our upcoming new expansion for X4, to your Steam Wishlist. This way you will be notified as soon as it has been released. We will announce the release dates for the major 7.00 update to X4: Foundations as well as X4: Timelines soon™.

22.May.24 7.00 Public Beta 6 now available  (100 Comments)
We have another new beta version for you this week. 7.00 Beta 6 can now be downloaded in the usual way.

Changes to the new "Existential Crisis" endgame activity
Thank you for your feedback so far on this new 7.00 late-game feature, based on which we've made several changes to it. The feature was always intended to be optional, but now the "Existential Crisis" will be very much opt-in rather than opt-out. To make this happen, we're introducing a new research step that will be required in order for the Crisis to occur, meaning that by simply not researching that item you can very easily avoid it. A warning message in the game will make sure that you are aware of the potential implications of this research.

We've also updated our existing FAQ entry on the "Existential Crisis" with information corresponding to the changes that have been made:

❓ How do I start the new "Existential Crisis" endgame content?
The crisis will be become available upon reaching around half a billion in assets, most of which should be military. This is based on construction cost, i.e. not the monetary value you see in the Empire Menu. As you approach having a big enough empire, Boso Ta will contact you about a new research opportunity making use of your vast fleet. All you then need to do is complete this research and continue preparing your empire for whatever comes next. Boso Ta will later inform you of, and guide you through, the crisis.

We're looking forward to your feedback on these changes in our forum thread on the topic.

08.May.24 7.00 Public Beta 5 now available  (100 Comments)
New week, new beta, as we continue on the road to X4 7.00! Today we have made 7.00 Beta 5 available to you, and we would like to draw your attention to two particular elements that we need your feedback on:


[Feedback Request] New Standard Input Profile for Controllers
At the beginning of the 7.00 public beta we mentioned that we had introduced a customisable radial menu for quick access to actions in the game. This is designed to make X4 more accessible and enjoyable for players who use controllers, joysticks and HOTAS devices.

With today's release of Beta 5, we have gone one step further and added a new default controller profile to the game. We'd like to ask you to try out this new default profile and let us know how you feel about the default settings, which mappings you find better, etc. Please share your feedback in the corresponding Egosoft forum thread.

The default controller profile has been changed, specifically to make the new radial menus available on controllers (via buttons X and Y). If you have a custom profile already, it will not be affected. To try out the changes, save your custom profile and load the profile called "Default - Keyboard & Mouse / Controller".

Please note that all of this is still "work in progress". We will continue to work on these controller profiles and things will likely change as the beta progresses.

[Feedback Request] Subordinates Manual Ware Basket
In version 7.00, a new feature allows users to select specific goods for a subordinate ship to trade. Previously, when adding a subordinate to a commander, the goods traded were selected automatically. Now, players can access the ship's behavior menu and manually choose the wares to trade, after first deselecting the 'Automatic' option. This enables players to exclude any goods they do not want the ship to trade; note that at least one item must be selected. If multiple goods are chosen, the ship will search for trades based on this selection, prioritizing goods that the station identifies as critical.

Please test this feature and share your feedback in this Egosoft forum thread. Thank you in advance.
