X3: Albion Prelude Announced

X-Universe News - Edition 46 announces X3: Albion Prelude, a new game in EGOSOFT's X series of space combat game to be released on December 15. The new game is to bridge the gap between X3: Terran Conflict and the upcoming X Rebirth, which was announced as coming this year, but seems pretty obviously delayed based on this news. They offer some screenshots and this teaser trailer, and here is a bit on the game:

X3: Albion Prelude provides a welcome bridge from the X Universe we know and love to the X Universe that will be experienced in X Rebirth. This new adventure will also feature more than 30 new ships and stations. A new Stock Exchange feature will enable players to speculate in local markets in a bid to increase their wealth. With this will also come tools to monitor and analyse economic developments and progress. Users with high-end machines will also benefit from some improved graphical quality settings. It is important to note that X3: Albion Prelude will NOT feature savegame compatibility with X3: Terran Conflict.

For owners of the X Superbox, X3: Albion Prelude will be available as a free download on Steam, while for owners of X3: Terran Conflict it will be available at the 'add-on' price of 9.99. For players new to the series, X3: Terran Conflict and X3: Albion Prelude will be available for purchase as a bundle. Time your purchase right and you could enjoy substantial discounts in the Steam holiday sale too!

I got stuck on X3 a while back... just earning money and building up a trading fleet. Never moved the storyline on. *sigh* more time sinks ^_^;;

It takes too much time, effort, and boring to actually get a decent economic setup going in X3. Forum posts often recommend flying to the far reaches of a sector, setting SETA, and leaving it overnight to play itself :\. And once you do get something happening, nothing can really stop it. At the same time, there isn't really much to do with it either. It's very sandbox and not very game.

The whole thing feels like it was never really intended to played as a commercial empire simulator as players do apparently play it. Hopefully Rebirth is a, er, Rebirth as far as this stuff is concerned. The biggest chunk of their game with the biggest potential just doesn't seem that fleshed out right now.
