Unveiling X3: Farnham's Legacy – a new chapter for an old favourite

Post by CBJ » Wed, 31. Mar 21, 22:54

Almost ten years ago, with the release of X3: Albion Prelude, Egosoft decided to bring development of titles based on the long-running X3 game engine to an end. However, a dedicated group of players from our DevNet community had other ideas!

The X3: Farnham's Legacy project kicked off in earnest in 2016 but, as with any community project, there were times when progress was faster than others. Five years on, and the team are now finally ready to show you their creation!

Set in the years after X3: Albion Prelude, as the chaos caused by the gate shutdown really takes hold, X3: Farnham's Legacy starts very differently to previous games in the X3 series. Trapped in an isolated area of space, you'll first need to make use of the new exploration features to find your way back to civilisation. Then, once you're there, you'll be able to use the new diplomacy options to help shape your relationships with the factions you find.

The new features don't end with the storyline, though. There are numerous other improvements, ranging from drone carriers, station-building services and an enhanced player headquarters, to a new ship browser and a hyperlinked encyclopedia. And of course, no new X3 game would be complete without new ships and stations!

X3: Farnham's Legacy will be released on May 4th, 2021. The best news of all, however, is that this new expansion will be FREE OF CHARGE to all owners of X3: Albion Prelude on Steam!

In the four weeks until the release, we will provide you with interviews of the team members to further fuel the anticipation. Please keep an eye on our usual news channels.

I hear that there will be something similar to pod racing. Can this be... planetary landings?!!

I guess it isn't an april's fool joke because the post was made yesterday. Whatever it will be, I'm excited. One of the best things would be a scalable UI. I would even pay for.

This was posted on April 1st everywhere east of Europe, but since you're a German company I'll consider this a very dirty trick if it turns out to be smoke. :mrgreen:

If this is for real it'll certainly get me to spend some more hours on AP.
