X Rebirth - The wait is almost over! [PRE-ORDER NOW]

Post by BurnIt! » Thu, 8. Aug 13, 16:16

X Rebirth breaks the veil of silence and brings not only confirmation of its promised release date but also some answers to fans' questions and a new series of in-game videos.

Release date
The action-loaded space simulation from Egosoft and Deep Silver will be released in Europe on the 15th of November 2013. "After seven years in development, people are naturally wondering why X Rebirth took so much time," says Egosoft's Studio Head Bernd Lehahn. "The reason for this is the sheer scope of our project. We not only want our universe to be huge, we want it to be huge and teeming with life. To me, the success of the Star Citizen funding shows that many people are waiting for our kind of game. A single factory compound in X Rebirth may consist of hundreds of buildings, some of which are so large that ships measuring kilometers in length can dock inside them. The player can even disembark in order to explore the station and meet its inhabitants."

There's also some good news for our fans in North America: Egosoft and Tri Synergy will be releasing X Rebirth on the 15th of November 2013 for the US market.

We'd like to invite all our fans to visit the gamescom during the 22nd to 25th of August in Cologne. You will have the chance to play the new Egosoft title for the first time in public at the Deep Silver booth in hall 9.1 B11/C10. Be among the very first to set foot in the new universe of X Rebirth and gain a quick impression of its looks and gameplay.

New Developer Diaries and Videos
Today we begin a new series of developer diaries featuring some previously-unseen in-game material. In "What took us so long?" Bernd answers the frequently-asked question regarding the lengthy development time and then demonstrates the breathtaking beauty and scale of the new X-Universe.

'Complex, but not complicated' describes one of the principal features of X Rebirth as demonstrated by the much-simplified game controls. The video "In Control" is the first of a pair of linked-videos demonstrating the much-simplified in-game control and interface methods. This first one covers the use of a gamepad controller. We will show further videos such as this on a more regular basis up until release date.

Our new Steam website will also cover helpful information and breaking information about the game. Visit it now for system requirements, additional screenshots and video coverage.

X Rebirth will be released for PC in Europe on the 15th of November 2013 and in North America on the 15th of November 2013.

I am totally ready for something new. Graphics look amazing, looks like you really can get off the Skunk for awhile for station/person interaction.
It's the "let your crew pilot large ships" part that I can't get excited about.
Why would an admiral stay aboard a patrol boat instead of his carrier/battleship?
Everything else about this game looks awesome.
If you want to go fast, go alone.
If you want to go far, go together.
