X Rebirth: Trading And Mining, Together At Last

It's definitely the prettiest trading I've ever seen. EGOSOFT's X Rebirth is expanding the options for space shopping, as they explain in a new video, that also covers how the game handles mining duties. Now split into two parts, basic inventory trading will be handled by speaking to actual (NPC) people and selling what's in your ship's pockets. Meanwhile, large-scale trading involves more familiar menus,…

I Am Space Agog At This X-Rebirth Gallery

The facile part of my brain that likes pretty things is currently whacking my internal dopamine button and I'm grinning like a quokka. That button is well worn after my last look at X Rebirth, where I watched X- Rebirth being unveiled through through tear-rimmed eyes. One eye was soaked in tears from the beauty and excitement from what I was seeing, and the other…

Eyegasm! 5 Minutes Of Gorgeous X-Rebirth Footage

Given that we have no "next-gen" on the PC, we miss out on the huge leaps forward that consoles get to have. Admittedly, we trade that excitement in for all manner of upsides, but I do miss feeling overwhelmed by a game. The last time it happened was in Planetside 2, when I was hovering over a tank column that was moving along a road.…

X Rebirth Is Still Floating In Space

You might recollect that X Rebirth was originally targeted for release a couple of years ago, but it's only now entering those final stages. Word (via Blue) is that it will appear at E3 under the banner of new publisher Tri Synergy. The announcement of this appearance is accompanied by a hand-wavey explanation of delay from the dev's bossman Bernd Lehahn, who says “It’s beautiful,…

Xciting Stuff: X: Rebirth Pathfinding Dev Diary

Hands up who likes complex space sims? Okay. Now hands up who likes complex German space sims? I thought that would thin you out a bit. The complexiest and Germaniest space sim of them all is the X series. It is a series that's evolved over time into something that actually feels like a place of work, but in an admirable way. Every game I've…

X3: Albion Prelude’s Sumptuous Spacestuff

Hang on. I just need to move all this space to one side to make space for more space. X3: Albion Prelude is a just released expansion pack for X3, bridging the gap to X: Rebirth, which should be with us early next year. The storyline of clashing corporations leads into Rebirth and there are new stations and ships to play around with. That's why…

Albion The Bridge: X Rebirth

When X Rebirth was announced back in April, there wasn't a huge amount of information to ponder so it seemed natural to expect something similar to previous games in the series. Turns out that while there will still be a great deal of piloting and trading, some things have indeed changed. The most significant shift is the focus to one ship, The Pride of Albion,…

Born Again – X: Rebirth Announced

Fans of the X series? Awake from your comas - the series is back with the freshly announced X: Rebirth. There's four images, too. And a trailer! I know there are mixed opinions of the space shopping X games (no skateboarding jokes, please), but really no one is in any position to disagree with their having named the first game's expansion pack, "X-Tension". Really, let's…

X3: Non-playable Demo?

While the kneejerk reaction to this is obviously one of mild incredulity, I can see why Egosoft have chosen to release this "benchmarking" version of X3 as a demo. It must be remarkably frustrating for people who build wide-open, sandbox titles and then find they can't adequately promote or explain their game with a demo version. Perhaps there's no way to chop out a chunk…

Star Quality? X3: Terran Conflict footage

I didn't really get on with the X games. Even by my high tolerances for videogame tedium among the stars, X3 seemed to be taking the piss a little. The scope and ambition of its Elite+++++ delivery is commendable, but there was something about its humorless space trudge that put me off. I do feel like I should go back, and plenty of my space-gaming…

X3: The Terran Conflict announced

News reaches us that Egosoft have announced the fourth chapter of their X: Beyond the Frontier series. It's called X3: The Terran Conflict. While details are sparse - the screen's from the original X3 - the lack of a "4" implies this is a standalone expansion "thing" rather than a true sequel. Egosoft have promised more missions than ever before. This is good. X fans…
