Cool. Still "Coming soon" on GoG, so I can't order it just yet...

Has an X Game ever reached version 5.0 before?

Will the main plots be finished this time?

Split Vendetta was clearly unfinished with placeholder values used for the "build us a fleet" mission and Cradle of Humanity had the fleet in the final mission get distracted by and attack every single Xenon station on the way to the final battle meaning only a handful of ships would reach the amplifier after what must have been an entire hour of SETA.

Less than one month away. Excited to finally be able to click the "Add to Cart" button on Steam. New Pirate ships! I have really missed seeing the Galleons, Brigantines, Carracks, and Blastclaws, from X3. Having these in the game really helps round out the universe.

Given how past releases went, probably not. That’s the way they release new paid content. I‘m also not sold on why I should buy this dlc. So far we know we get a few sectors, few new ships, two new factions, new plots (I guess 2-3?). Will see what the paid content creators show on the livestream and decide whether it’s worth the full price for me.

Looking forward to the new DLC; salvage mechanic introduction looks interesting. Also curious to find out about the new factions & sectors & the lore involved.

I'd like to know if the Soundtrack is included with Tides of Avarice?
similar to Split Vendetta or Cradle of Humanity.

GoG is still thinking that the release date needs to be announced.

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/
