There is still audience and great attention for Egosoft after all :wink:

Great news!

Is there perhaps an official thread where we can put our ideas for x4/thoughts on rebirth, what we liked and what we didnt?

Will be possible to change actual weapons loadout on our ships, as it was in X3?
There are ships with more than one weapon slot. You can equip compatible weapons and assign them in weapon groups.
Example with a ship with two weaponslots.
E.g. slot1 laser installed, slot2 has a shotgun equipped.
Weapongroup 1: fire slot 1
Weapongroup 2: fire slot 2
Weapongroup 3: fire slot 1 and slot 2.

Either two shotguns or two lasers can be installed of course, too.

Thank you Egosoft for wonderful news! Merry Christmas!

PS: I know it's too early but please just consider open beta or some teaser version before releasing X4 to avoid unnecessary disasters in reviews :-)

@ Axeface: Recent threads on X4 speculation and Rebirth dislikes (many - take your pick) already exist and can be added to and so will get to the top of the front page.

Of course discussion of content of the betas should be in the relevant Public Beta forum.

Well, X4 news is certainly worth cracking out the old account and posting a generic, woop.

Of course, remains to see what else is released further down the road but the summary of what will be in X4 is a good start.

I long for the same feeling of depth and the sheer selection of choice I had in X2 as I lost months of my life to it at Uni, alas I never got further than 30 minutes of Rebirth and X3 was eventually pretty good but never re-captured that buzz I got from X2.

Well there are a lot of us fans who are still keenly interested in Egosoft even if the last game they released wasn't worth even the broadband cost it would take to download it. xD

I can't wait to see what they do with X4 so I can (hopefully) give them my money! What they have announced so far seems to have them on the right track though! :D

I probably would complain about X:R VR being a complete waste of time and money, but at least it will let them hammer out any bugs in the new engine there before releasing X4...

I never bothered with X3R because it was basically a stripped down over simplified version of X3 that wasn't worth the time but this VR version excites me so much. Please don't screw this up!!
You seem to be a little confused. It's X Rebirth VR Edition; nothing to do with X3 Reunion. :)

Stop talking about X:Rebirth VR, that's unimportant. More important are the little bits about an truly X4 in the making.

Now that's something interesting. Really looking forward to that one. =)

i am pretty sure ego already said no to that.
You have insider info on X4? Because the only thing Ego's said 'no' to was flying capitals in Rebirth. I don't see where they've said the same thing about X4.
Linolafett mentioned it in the German forum. Short version: There are S, M, L, and XL size ships. You can steer S and M ships yourself.

I like the bit about Vulkan. That should make it a lot easier to port the game to Linux and Mac.

A while ago I decided to skip the first generation of VR. Now I think I'll have to reconsider. Are you trying to bankrupt me? Those things cost a fortune! :D

One last question: Will the beta patches and early access be limited to Steam? And will there be a Steam exclusive period for XR-VR? Would be great to get that stuff via GOG.

Thanks for the exciting news, Egosoft!

Well, its still pre-alpha, so there is always a chance they will change their minds and get it right instead! I doubt they want another XR on their hands.

Can't believe they're finally working on/updating Albion Prelude! To me, that's way more exciting than Rebirth.

Still wish they'd make a real X4, a modern and updated X3:AP. Rebirth doesn't count.

well, its still missing even with XR because that wasnt building form individual modules. lets hope this time they make it right :)

Hmm more x game development. :(

Wished you would make a new IP set in space instead of redoing the same game over and over again.

I know bernd is x mad and doesnt wana do anything else but it would be interesting to see what egosoft as a company could do with a new IP and not be known just for 1 IP/game.

More modular stations. Means less unique looking stations as all stations will look even more the same just a mix of this and that and the other. Stations should be cool things with decent skins on not a mix of parts which u see on almost all stations which the last few x games have been like. Especially rebirth. Back in the days of xbtf and x2 etc stations used to look uniquely shaped and could identify them alot easier. Nowadays in rebirth there all jumbled up into a big mess of a hub where u dunno by sight what things are. True back in the older x games they were less detailed in poly and textures but at least they looked different from each other baring faction differences which often there wasnt except a color change iirc but least i knew what a spp looked like back in them days vs a cp.
