Original Post:

We have all had to adapt our lives to extraordinary circumstances this year, and gamescom, the world's largest event for games, is no different. This year the event will take place in a purely digital form - and we will be there! As an official gamescom partner, EGOSOFT is taking part in the event's programme, but of course there is more to it than that, so here is a brief overview of our planned activities around gamescom 2020:

Unveiling of the second expansion for X4: Foundations
Get ready to hear early details of the second expansion for X4: Foundations. Following the release of X4: Split Vendetta in spring 2020, we will be giving a first insight into the next chapter of our current game at gamescom 2020. Whether you're on Steam, in our forums, on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Reddit, keep your eyes peeled to avoid missing anything!

Indie Arena Booth Online
For a number of years now, the Indie Arena Booth (IAB) has been one of the big crowd-pullers at gamescom. Dozens of indie developers from all over the world gather at this large stand, where a carefully-curated selection of games is available to try. Of course, the IAB will not take place in its usual form this year, but you can visit the booth as part of an online game. From the evening of August 27th 2020, you can attend the virtual Indie Arena Booth at online.indiearenabooth.com - we will be there too, with a neat spaceship booth. We look forward to your visit!

Livestream on Friday, August 28th, 2020
The first couple of gamescom days will be rounded off on Friday evening with a livestream on www.twitch.tv/egosoftofficial. Following our usual format, we will give you an insight into current development progress on X4: Foundations, starting at 7pm CEST / 6pm BST / 1pm EDT / 10am PDT. And, of course, we will talk about our plans for the second expansion and the next big update. Join us!

Reddit AMA on Saturday, August 29th, 2020
Working on the assumption that not all your questions will have been answered during the livestream on Friday evening, you will have another opportunity, a day later, to learn more about the current and future development of X4: Foundations. EGOSOFT founder and Lead Game Designer, Bernd Lehahn, will be available to answer questions in a Reddit AMA starting at 9pm CEST / 8pm BST / 3pm EDT / noon PDT. Please keep an eye on our official channels to find a direct link to the AMA on the day. In the meantime we invite you to join our subreddit at /r/X4Foundations.

We hope that there will be something for everyone on these unconventional gamescom days this year. We look forward to interacting with you and will be interested in your reaction to our plans.

See you around at gamescom 2020!

Great to hear a new info from you guys.
Looking forward for a Friday's stream and next day's AMA.

And... someone perceptive could discover a new expansion's name in logo section of IAB ;)

That's a second leak about this DLC (first one was during live stream) - you have a bad luck streak this time :)

It's not like we don't already know which one of the remaining two races comes next, as Borons are quite problematic to implement. :D

I'm kinda curious about DLC2 name, but I'll be a good boy and wait one more week.

I think the website leaked more details than just what the next race to be added will be. Possibly some ship or station designs, or maybe new mechanics. I did not see it as it was fixed by the time I noticed this thread but one can always speculate lol.

Spoiler alert - if you're smart and know where to look, you will still be able to see the DLC name :)

Hint: It's in the plain sight :D

I had a quick look before the leak was fixed, all I saw was the logo for DLC2. The screenshots only had a selection of X4 and DLC1, nothing more.

What I want to know is the release date! Will it really be Q1 2021? Hope we'll know for sure next week! :)

It seems to be the working title of the expansion. It was already known for some time, since Egosoft got a state funding for a project that is called X4: R***** ** ***** as early as June. While the document isn't public, its title is.

The logo uses a different title, one that is more poetic and fitting. That's why I think the logo is the real deal and not what you see in the trailer.

Hmm, that's good to know - the title in credits, while descriptive, felt a bit bland.

Yeah, that name in the IAB video credits is not the final name of the second expansion, I can tell you that much :D Still, also wasn't supposed to show up there. It's a first digital gamescom for all of us, I guess :oops: Anyway, keep an eye out for the real deal next week!
