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 are well known for their love of missions. We exclusively predict a high incidence of conflict in the region of Terra.

It's at times like this, RPS wishes they still had the MP3 of "I am Elite" from the Adrian "Ian's Brother" Bell-penned Elite musical to listen in celebration, but we've long since lost it. Has anyone out there got a copy? It really is a thing of wonder. Anyway - it's looking at a third quarter release, which leaves plenty of time for X-fans to get excited in the comments thread.
