NEWS: First X3TC Teaser Video released

Post by Vassenego » Wed, 5. Mar 08, 18:00

Just a month ago X³: Terran Conflict was announced, but little information is yet available. Today Egosoft presents a first short teaser video for the game.

It shows some of the new ships and weapons in action. We hope you like this little foretaste.

As usual the video can be downloaded from the Downloads section of this site.


Have fun!

Check your codecs. There are also some gaming sites which can stream the video.

It works okay for me, but I have Xvid and DivX installed.

Looky priddy! :)

EDIT: It's encoded with XVID MPEG-4.

If you're having problems with the Codec, you need at least XviD (not DivX) 1.0.1 installed and that should clean it up.

Thanks for that Carlo :)

Would've posted the link after a small search, but I see someone's been quicker than I :P

Meh, here it is anyway:

Oh, it's a different one, but this is what Microsoft's site linked to :)

Huhh... Looks like you guys took a lot of ideas from XTM. :wink: (no offense)
And that you took a couple of drastic remodelling of the ships. Ohh well.... we got used to it (from X-BTF to X3, every ship had a new look), but with the "old" engine, it's just quite...unusuall.
But still: great job Egosoft, I'm really looking forward to this game!
:x3:
Ohh, and one more thing: I LOVE THAT MUSIC!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't hate Steam.
I don't love Steam.
I use it.

I'm curious as to the system specs of the recording PC - there's definitely some FPS issues there - hopefully that's just a case of little optimisation yet and running FRAPs at the same time.
Missile effects - interesting, but possibly a bit much... the missile impact explosions seemed quite big, too.

Other than a minor quibble about missiles and a comment on an alpha/beta-build's FPS, I like it a lot :D

My other half says "the music's much better!", and my 3yr old keeps saying "and again" every time the video finishes - he's certainly a fan!

*edit*
The video has now looped at least 20 times, and he's still saying "and again" after each repeat...

I've already put in a request for more music with CBJ.

I liked that Missile Frigate/Cruiser/Whatever-it-is.

Sounds like he's stuck - give him a gentle nudge & see if he says something else :)

*edit* having now seen the highQ vid..
Well - must say that overaall I'm most impressed.

Is it using the same engine (tweaked) or a new one ??
Is it truely 'in game' footage - if so I'm more than 'most' impressed.

As others have said - looks purdy :)

I'm relatively new to the X universe, but was still impressed by the current engine & how well its stood the test of time (although I suspect that the newer HW may have improved things over when it was released).

This looks like its gonna be a hit chap. :D
