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 ;)

If anyone is interested in a new save game editor for X4 and would like to contribute to the creation of one let me know. I do not have sufficient time to create it alone, but if there are enough people who want it and want to contribute we might be able to set something up.

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!
