Release of X Rebirth VR Edition

Celebrated with free X weekend

Egosoft is happy to announce that our first Virtual Reality game is finally ready for release. Today marks the end of Early Access and the launch of X Rebirth VR Edition 4.30 on Steam and the Oculus Store.

With this launch also come a number of new features for XR VR, including improved HOTAS and Joystick support and a method to play in VR with mouse and keyboard. Click here for a full list of changes. See different methods of playing X Rebirth VR Edition explained in this video:

Free X weekend and up to 80% discount

To celebrate the launch of X Rebirth VR Edition, we will make all X games available for free for the upcoming weekend on Steam. You can play during the weekend and try out all the games from Egosoft that you do not own yet. Best of all: If you decide you want to buy one of them, there are some massive discounts too. Go and check out our games on Steam here: EGOSOFT Games Overview.

End of Loyalty Discount: If you own X Rebirth and want VR Edition, buy NOW!

We are going to end the X Rebirth VR Edition loyalty discount on December 10th when this sale ends. So if you own X Rebirth and are considering X Rebirth VR Edition, you can buy it with a 30% loyalty discount added on top of the 20% discount during this weekend at a total of 50% off!

New Updates for X Rebirth, X3TC and X3AP

Now available for download

X Rebirth 4.30: This update brings a number of improvements for controlling the game. Joystick and HOTAS improvements that we made during the XR VR development have been back ported to X Rebirth and come along with a default profile for some of the most popular sticks. Also controlling the game with gamepads got a lot easier thanks to a number of new features developed for X Rebirth VR Edition. Click here for a full list of features.

X3: Terran Conflict 3.4 and X3: Albion Prelude 3.3: These two updates bring a couple of low level engine improvements for better performance especially during large battles. We also added a borderless window mode and fixed some bugs. More about these updates here.
