X4: Tides of Avarice Announced

Ego-driven developer EGOSOFT announces X4: Tides of Avarice, a new expansion that will come to X4: Foundations in Q1 of next year. You can see the add-on in action in a Reveal Teaser Trailer and it can already be wishlisted on GOG.com and Steam. The base game will also be updated when this arrives. Word is: "X4: Tides of Avarice is released at the same time as the extensive, free 5.00 update for X4: Foundations, which expands and improves the base game in several ways. The 5.00 update introduces a series of new capital ships. These ships have been re-imagined, and a new fleet of improved models will now be on sale in various shipyards. Several factions in the game will gradually start using these new and improved ships. The 5.00 update will also bring AMD FidelityFX™ Super Resolution (FSR) to X4: Foundations, using a collection of cutting-edge upscaling technologies to boost performance."
