Würselen/Planegg, Germany – In a further step to enhance and broaden the enjoyment of its X games titles, Germany-based software developer, EGOSOFT, and publisher Deep Silver today announced the forthcoming release of the X Superbox.

This compendium represents the full spectrum of EGOSOFT’s endeavours over the course of its PC games development history, stretching right back to the first X-series game, X- Beyond the Frontier, chronicling the adventures of Kyle Brennan in the X Universe and bringing that Universe’s story right up to date with the very latest version of X3: Terran Conflict, for which a new set of missions, entitled ‘Balance of Power’ has been specially developed.

The X Superbox contains the most up-to-date version of all of the X-series games, which have been updated to ensure compatibility with Microsoft Windows XP (SP2), Windows Vista (SP1) and Windows 7 (32 and 64-bit). All of these titles are also provided without DRM. A comprehensive contents and features list can be found below.

In addition to all of the X-series titles, the X Superbox also contains an all-new and exclusive X Encyclopedia, written by Helge Kautz, the author of Farnham’s Legend and other X Universe books. This 300-page encyclopedia, which covers historic events and personalities in the X Universe, amongst many other items of interest, represents the ultimate reference for all avid fans of the X-series of games.

EGOSOFT and Deep Silver are particularly proud to announce that the X Superbox will contain a bonus DVD that is bursting at the seams with additional content, most of which has been created and developed by players and fans of the X games, as well some other previously-unreleased exclusive bonus content added by EGOSOFT.

The community-created content includes guides, artwork, music, videos and modding tools as well as many of the most popular scripts and mods for X2: The Threat, X3: Reunion and X3: Terran Conflict. The scope and scale of this content is testament to the loyal dedication and the passion of the EGOSOFT gaming community.

The X Superbox will be available on general release in the UK, Scandinavia, Benelux, Australia, France and in the German-speaking countries on 08 October 2010. Click here to go to the EGOSOFT Online Shop and pre-order the X Superbox.

Whoa!

What about a North American release?

[edit] also, will the new mission for TC be released as a patch as well, or will it be exclusive to the superbox?

Sweet, I'll consider it an early birthday present for myself.

Like Vanguard3000, what about North America? But I'm not too concerned since I managed to get TC 1.0 upon released so I'm sure I'll be able to get this as well.

I'm getting it as soon as I am guaranteed I'll keep the job I have been offered. It actually should be by October Very Happy

And I guess the date for the 3.0 patch is the 8th October too? Or will it have a delay on web publishing to encourage the superpack sales?

Ah, I would preorder it but I don't have my new address for October yet... Sad

So I'll drool over this thread for a month, then order it when I do! Very Happy

Probably nothing to do with TNBT as in my opinion Ego would be wiser to hold off any info about that until the Superbox sells, otherwise it could ruin their sales.
