Gamescon interviews (CBJ mentioned various, care to elaborate?)

Post by nemesis1982 » Thu, 13. Sep 18, 21:24

So I was curious in the dying and now locked thread which name shall not be spoken CBJ mentioned several German Gamescon interviews. I know of two.

Gamestar, video narrated by Bernd: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AozXPfEq3Z0 (Courtesy of Tamina), (Or the cut verion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIkb-tsn85s (Courtesy of spacecoyote99)

Nerdstar, featuring Bernd in person: https://youtu.be/fLSBEsQScV0 (Courtesy of Skeeter)

Please refrain from complaining about missed opportunities, a lack of information or previous failures. There are enough topics already discussing that ;)

Other coverage that I've been made aware of, all in German:

• Gamestar: https://www.gamestar.de/videos/x4-found ... 97078.html
• PC Games: http://www.pcgames.de/X4-Foundations-Sp ... n-1263789/
• game7days: https://game7days.de/2018/08/25/gamesco ... n-egosoft/
• Gamers Global: https://www.gamersglobal.de/news/148544 ... neuerungen
• nat games: http://www.nat-games.de/2018/08/31/ange ... scom-2018/

Bearing in mind that they are probably all working from the same source material, don't expect much in the way of new information from them. :)

Thnx for the quick and concise reply CBJ. I understand that there may not be any new info. Und Deutsch ist kein problem ;)

Looking forward to the HQ info Bernd hinted at ;)

@spankahontis: As a master race any other language should be peanuts :P

As for a breakdown of the narated movie: https://forum.egosoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=399616

Some other tidbits I picked up:
- The game has been in Beta for quite sometime
- We'll get another update soon featuring the HQ
- We'll get a release date soon. 2018 is still the release year, Bernd seems to be sure about that. I found it strange that Bernd said he's not allowed to mention the release date as he's the owner of egosoft and they're self publishing.
- One of the articles wnats to have Bernd and Chris Roberts in a debate.
- Just every article ends with. Yhe game sounds great, if they deliver a functioning product and it does what they say it can do it'll be epic. (in german that sounds much better :P )

For the rest not much news.

Yes me as well. However, the question when is soon ;) Might be another month. Would love a slot we can expect it for.

A week or so ago the egosoft site was down and I got all excited thinking they announced a release date and the site crocked under the traffic. Ah well. Only thing to do is be patient!
