The Teladi Outpost (abbreviated "TTO") is the first Downloadable Content (DLC) for X Rebirth. It was first announced on the 26th September 2014 and was officially released together with X Rebirth Update 3.0 on the 11th December 2014.[1]

Content


The Teladi Outpost establishes a connection to the Teladi system Fields of Opportunity, which lost its connection to the Teladi Company in the past. The system is divided into two sectors with different zones. Unlike in any of the other systems from the base game, Albion, Devries, Omicron Lyrae, the zones in Fields of Opportunity are not connected by Local Highways. A powerful engine and the usage of the Turbo Boost are therefore even more important, when travelling through this system.

 

Located within Fields of Opportunity is a huge Teladi habitat station called "Overwatch“. This station is home to many of the Teladi inhabitants of this system and provides the headquarters for the Teladi Union. It contains a shipyard to build Teladi ships and even produces many wares needed by other stations in this system.

 

TTO also features a whole set of new Teladi ships.   

 

Game integration


The content from the TTO DLC is available in every gamestart, newly started as well as existing ones, as long as the DLC is installed and activated in the game. You can check that by opening the extensions menu in the game.

The dedicated "The Teladi Outpost“ gamestart lets you start directly in the new system. Within all other gamestarts you will have to find the access point to the new system on your own. Alternatively you can click on the Spoiler link below.

 

There are two gates leading to the new system Fields of Opportunity. The first one can be found in Albion / Far Out / Exhaustless Mines. The second in Omicron Lyrae / Eclipse Clouds / Drippy Ascent.
