We are pleased to announce yet another free update to X Rebirth, along with a new DLC called Home of Light which is available to buy now.

Key new features of 4.0 include:
  • Bulletin board system to keep track of offered missions.
  • Major overhaul of external view (enabled menus, target elements, external view in highways, and more).
  • Orders for multiple selected ships in the Property Owned menu (replaces 'Broadcast' order).
  • Trade Deals menu with profit estimates.
  • Economy logging and statistics.
  • Time acceleration using SETA.
  • New mission to obtain player ship jump drive.
  • New missions to hack stations and obtain rare or valuable items.
  • You can now find and craft rare weapon modifications that increase your weapon's stats when installed.
  • New in-game tutorials.
  • OS X and Linux versions now join Windows on full release.

The Home of Light DLC is the second expansion for X Rebirth and establishes the access to three new star systems, including the well-known Home of Light, home of the powerful TerraCorp.

For more details take a look at our new trailer and explanation videos which cover both the 4.0 update and the Home of Light DLC:

There's more good news too!

  • A new X Rebirth "Complete Edition" which includes both The Teladi Outpost and Home of Light DLCs is now available on Steam if you haven't yet bought the game.
  • X Rebirth and the X Rebirth "Complete Edition" are also now available on GOG, for Windows, OS X and Linux.
  • X Rebirth "Complete Edition" (listed as "X Rebirth Home of Light") is also available on the Apple App Store, for OS X only of course.
  • For those who are still undecided, we have a free demo available on Steam and a limited "Free Edition" on the App Store ("X Rebirth Home of Light Free").
  • Soundtracks for The Teladi Outpost and Home of Light are now available on Amazon and iTunes.
  • Farnham's Legend, the first of the X series novels by Helge T. Kautz, is now available as an ebook on Amazon.

It's coming. We're just coordinating the release with Steam, whose timezone is a little different to ours. Smile

Bad idea to bring back seta now we will get Ppl bragging about big empires as all they really did was seta while factories spew money.

Again, 4.0 is released, but we're still working with the guys at Steam to get HoL out to the general public.

guess the hol has not been released yet, they did mention was waiting for steam, only 4.0 patch should be downloadable just now.
