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!
