Where can I find out about the lore of the game?

Post by daifuco » Sun, 26. Jul 20, 18:26

I just started my first proper X4 game. I just barely touched Reunion and TC long long ago.
The X4 in-game reference keeps talking about a gate shutdown. One of the game starts also mention a paranid civil war.
Am I going to discover details about those events as I keep playing or they are just historical references for older players?
Where is the best place to read about the lore of the game?
Apparently there is something called the argonopedia but it is shut down. Is it coming back soon?

The best place for lore is probably the official encyclopedia, that you should be able to find here. You might have to register your game before you can access it, and I don't know if X4 qualifies. Be warned that it can be inconsistent at times. The main lore holds together pretty well, though. From what I understand there's also some lore scattered around X4, so keep your eyes peeled.

Argonopedia has been dead for several years, so the chances of it coming back are pretty much zero at this point.
I'm sorry, I can't hear you over the sound of how awesome I am :D

Here is another link to a fansite:
https://x-lexikon.bosl.info/index.php?title=Hauptseite
It has quite large fan base and provided me useful insights into lore on races and history of X-Games.

The Data Vaults in X4 also provide some in-game access to portions of the history too, so yes, you'll get more as you play. I think there were 28 of them.
From iron, steel. From wood, ash.
