NEWS: X³: Terran Conflict announced

Post by BurnIt! » Sun, 3. Feb 08, 16:00

Computer games developer Egosoft and Koch Media, a leading distributor of games and application software, today announced the conclusion of an exclusive publishing and distribution agreement for the title X³: Terran Conflict. X³: Terran Conflict will be released under the Deep Silver label.

"The X series has always been one of our top quality brands, and an integral part of the Deep Silver portfolio," states Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, Managing Director of Koch Media. "So we are very happy to be presenting the gripping next installment of the X universe's story in X³: Terran Conflict."

"We look forward to adding another successful chapter to the X story, together with Koch Media," says Bernd Lehahn, Managing Director of Egosoft.

X³: Terran Conflict is a brand new, stand-alone game set in the universe of X³. It is the culmination of the X trilogy, with a grand finale that takes us all the way back to Earth's own solar system. Gamers can take on the roles of different characters in the X universe, or of a Terran military pilot, and experience a multitude of stories in the largest X universe ever featured – for X³: Terran Conflict will offer more missions than any other X game before. Meanwhile, X³: Terran Conflict will pose questions such as: How has Earth changed in all these years? And how will relations between Earth and its counterparts in the X universe develop?

X³: Terran Conflict is scheduled for release in the third quarter of 2008.

If it is a stand-alone game (as such, should not require an X3 installation, unlike Half-Life2 and Orange box), why is it called "X3"?

Or is it a total-conversion expansion?

Probably because its a continuation of the X3 story....
and possibly using an enhanced version of the X3 engine. (or exactly the same)

:D Awesome! It was about time, I think. And I don't care if it's X4 or a stand-alone expansion. I hope that, if nothing goes wrong, it would be the...well.... "largest X universe ever featured" and the best game ever made. :) ...it should be! :lol:

Well, if it's based on X³ they won't create a complete new DX10-Engine. Besides, XP is still the most-used OS, so it's likely to be supported.
