The EGOSOFT Forums
have a follow-up to the recent release of X Rebirth
, the new installment
in their space combat series (thanks
). The post reflects the mixed reaction the game has met with, as
players are both delighted by what the game offers and frustrated by technical
issues. EGOSOFT's Bernd Lehahn outlines the problems they are currently working
on, and expresses their unhappiness with the bugs amid their pleasure at the
success of the release:
First, I would like to apologise to those of you
who have had technical problems. I have started a thread in the Steam forums
where I have listed the most common errors and have now collected a lot of
information about this. All of this will of course be made available here in our
support forum as soon as our server is able to remain stable under the load.
Secondly, I would like to say how amazed we all are here by the huge success of
the game. Number one on Steam for several days in a row at this time of year
when the big hitters come out... wow, we never expected that. It's crazy to see
that more than 10,000 people are playing our game at any one time on Steam (even
more if you include those who are in offline mode). Madness!
Great though it is to see that the game is so successful and that many people
are having a lot of fun with it, it pains me to see every case where the game
causes problems. Sorry folks, I can only apologise for that.
