I'd like to know if the Soundtrack is included with Tides of Avarice?
similar to Split Vendetta or Cradle of Humanity.
Not exactly sure what you're asking here. If you want to listen to the soundtrack without playing the game, or just want to support that with an additional purchase, you can get the soundtrack on Steam (purchasable starting Friday, February 25th): https://store.steampowered.com/app/1788 ... oundtrack/

GoG is still thinking that the release date needs to be announced.
The pre-purchase option for X4: Tides of Avarice on GOG should be activated today at 3pm CET over at https://www.gog.com/en/game/x4_tides_of_avarice.
To Clarify about the Soundtrack when each DLC previously released (as a holder of the Collectors Edition) the Soundtrack was included as a nice bonus {included as seperate content]
I'm asking if the soundtrack is included with Tides of Avarice Expansion so on the March release date it follows Egosofts other X4 Expansions.

I look forward to the GoG refresh

Understood. The expansion and the soundtrack are two seperate products. Neither of them will be included in the X4: Foundations Collector's Edition, nor will there be a "Tides of Avarice bundle".

*ka-tsching* too :D
Egosoft games and DLC are actually the only ones left I still pre-order.
Not always perfect at launch, but support from developers is pristine :)

I'm Xcited!

Does pre-ordering include any benefits or is it the same as purchasing once the release is out?

I would like to know if The Tides of Avarice will be a new start or will it continue with where we are in CoH? Do I keep my HQ, ships, credits and so on, or start from scratch?

As with all patches and DLC, 5.0 and TOA will be compatible with earlier X4 saves, so it's up to you.
Come watch me on Twitch where I occasionally play several of the X games

I like the idea of EgoSoft staying in business for the foreseeable future so I pre-order everything. I'd hate to live in a world where I'm playing an X game and reminiscing when EgoSoft made all the awesome stuff.

Thanks for the clarification.

As a side note. Maybe future releases could encourage pre-order through something special. Samsung released one of their new phones giving pre-ordering customers i Korea a free NFT. I for one would love to collect something X universe related. :roll:

I heavily disagree.
I really dislike non-discount-type pre-order bonuses that are only available for pre-orders as it makes players who come at a later point to this franchise or players who want to wait for reviews to come out feel left out or not getting a complete product. Not to mention that most pre-order incentives are not pro-consumer, but a disguised customer manipulation by exploiting the "fear of missing out" to make the customer pay money before being able to know the quality of the product they're buying. At most a fair pre-order bonus should be a discount, nothing more, but in ToA's case I don't want a pre-order discount, I happily pay the full price even for a pre-order because I know how many hours of fun their games provide.

If there is something to be collected, it should be available to all, not just pre-orders, perhaps more physical products in the Egosoft store (ship models? official maps?).

Also, NFTs, I don't think we really need that junk fad nonsense here.
