09.Dec.21 4.20 update now available  (1 评论)
We're skipping the Spaceweed references, and delivering some improvements and fixes instead.

Along the route to the extensive 5.00 update, which will be released next year (see announcement), we are making a short stopover today to deliver the 4.20 update for X4: Foundations. The focus of this update is on fixes and small improvements, so we are not introducing any new features with this release.

>> 4.20 Changelog

We hope you have lots of fun with X4: Foundations, and thank you for your support during this unusual year.

25.Nov.21 X4: Tides of Avarice - Egosoft reveals next chapter of X4 space saga  (139 评论)

EGOSOFT today unveils the next chapter in its long-running space simulation franchise. X4: Tides of Avarice is the third expansion for the latest game in the series, X4: Foundations. X4: Tides of Avarice will be released for PC (Windows, Linux) in the first quarter of 2022.

>> Watch the X4: Tides of Avarice - Reveal Teaser <<

Meet new factions and experience their stories
Encountering and interacting with previously unknown, lawless pirate and scavenger factions, will challenge your perception of social order and justice in the X universe. In new sectors and dangerous regions, you will not only discover new ships and stations, but also encounter stellar phenomena that will significantly influence your plans and actions. What is it all about, and who are the mysterious manipulators that have learned to master a rare and vital resource? Your journey will lead you towards the answers. Set out and discover a new chapter of X4: Foundations.

Let new ships terrify and enchant you at the same time
Roam through the Windfall and Avarice systems, and discover numerous new ships from the pirate and scavenger factions of X4: Tides of Avarice. Among other new ships, you can look forward to the following highlights:
  • The Erlking, a terrifying pirate battleship with an experimental and unusual energy source, has been developed over many years by the Riptide Rakers, at great cost to their resources and lives, in a desperate attempt to take advantage of stellar phenomena in the Avarice system. In X4: Tides of Avarice, you will find out more about these curious events, while you upgrade the Erlking using research and resources acquired during your adventure.
  • The Astrid, an incredibly lavish and luxurious yacht, projects wealth and importance. Owned by the CEO of the Northriver Company, Brantlee Northriver, it is rumoured to be the fastest ship in the galaxy. With its sleek design, the Astrid is a ship unlike anything you've ever come across in the X universe. What mysteries might it hold?
Salvage shipwrecks to recycle resources
Have you ever come across a shipwreck and wished you could use it in a profitable way? In the Avarice system, the Riptide Rakers, a loosely organised group of scavengers and traders, have developed the means to salvage wrecks and use them in production. Either tow the wreck with one of the new tug ships, or dismantle the wreck right where you found it using a new deconstruction ship. Once you've reached a station equipped with a recycling module, watch your scrap metal turn into building resources.

X4: Foundations 5.00 Update
X4: Tides of Avarice is released at the same time as the extensive, free 5.00 update for X4: Foundations, which expands and improves the base game in several ways. The 5.00 update introduces a series of new capital ships. These ships have been re-imagined, and a new fleet of improved models will now be on sale in various shipyards. Several factions in the game will gradually start using these new and improved ships. The 5.00 update will also bring AMD FidelityFX™ Super Resolution (FSR) to X4: Foundations, using a collection of cutting-edge upscaling technologies to boost performance.

Further details about X4: Tides of Avarice, as well as the 5.00 update for X4: Foundations, will be released over the next few months as we get closer to the release date. X4: Tides of Avarice is now listed on Steam and GOG and can be added to players' wish-lists.

02.Sep.21 X3: Farnham's Legacy Donation Pack - Review  (3 评论)
As previously announced, we have now finished selling the X3: Farnham's Legacy Donation Pack. The donation pack gave you the opportunity to express your gratitude to our team of highly motivated community members, who spent the last five years or so working on X3: Farnham's Legacy. The game was released in May 2021, and we have received lots of great feedback from you - thank you for that!

Just to give you an idea of what you have achieved with the donation pack, we can tell you that we've rounded up the total donation sum to 5,000 euros for Médecins sans frontières / Doctors Without Borders. We've also decided to donate an additional 5,000 euros, not taken from the donation pack, to "Aachen hilft", which is a regional campaign to help those affected by the recent flood disaster here in Germany. We thank you for your support, and we are pleased that we were able to pass on a nice sum of money to some good causes.

X3: Farnham's Legacy itself will, of course, remain available, both in its original Windows version and also now as a native Linux version. We are happy to see every download, and hope you have a lot of fun during your time in the extended X3 universe, whether you are new to the series or a veteran X gamer!
