    I tired to get into Terran Conflict and albion, but like most newcomers it was very daunting ( and the AI autopilot seems to have all the brains of a stuffed dog ) so it becomes very frustrating after sending off your little trading ship to make money...only to have it crash into a STATION before you can leave the system, or buying ships that spawn where you are when you disengage from the station

    I think It could be a really good game, if it was a little easier to get into and with a smarter AI

    still looks epic though

    also a multiplayer would be pretty awesome

    Its a new game engine the auto Pillock has been sacked and the old control interface has gone to make it a bit easier for the new comers .
    I have spent 1500 hours in TC and AP just got passed 1200 hour mark today ( dam need to get out more) but still having fun

    Love the whole X-series. Have played all of them since the first one was released back then.

    Seriously can't wait for X:Rebirth to finally being released :)

    It's in the Steam 'Coming Soon' section, but there's no price - not that that matters!

    Looking very forward to this. I've been playing through Terran Conflict recently, but as far as I'm concerned the pinacle of the X games is X3 with the xTended mod installed. I loved flying around in my Reaper with a Chimera docked as a little auxiliary ship. I was on my way to buying the unknown sector when I lost my saved games.

    Those interested can grab the X3:Gold-package for $25 which includes all of the X3-games and addons.

    If you've never played the X-series before, this is the best way to get hyped for X:Rebirth :p

    The Newsletter for X:Rebirth was sent this week to registered users aswell, with some good information about the upcoming title.

    X is a open sand box game set in space
    But I will warn you it takes 50- 100 hours just to learn what to do and then the rest of you life to master .
    Egosoft are one of the best company's out there they support there games for years after the game is lunched. and not talking about bug fixers you get bonus packs and add-on new ships and new sectors and missions to do all for free

    put a load of hours into x3 reunion. really enjoyed it. when I saw TC+AP cheap on steam thought it'd be fun. but I swear they made the autopilot by pouring soy sauce onto a dead octopus.... I remember shortcutting the whole dock procedure by racing into position before enabling autopilot. in TC it seems to spend several hours to fly all the way out then randomly travel in different directions.

    might keep an eye of rebirth, but not sure if star citizen appeals more

    Actually 49.99 euro on Steam now a bit expensive I think - I am an x series nutter 2122 hours in AP alone I actually have dead is dead in AP and TC, Techhead you know what I mean! I love the look of it but will hold out for a more realistic price I would have paid 39.99 but it is too dear for me

    Not long to go now. It's looking sooo good!

    I can't wait to see what happens when the modding community is let loose upon it.

    Looks amazing, but then they always do. Just hope the learning curve isn't as extreme as the third game. That was just menu after menu after menu. I didn't play it for long. Played the second game, though I found the pacing to be a little slow. I prefer Freelancer type ones tbh.

    From the looks of it, they've been spending some good time on making it a bit more user-friendly for people who aren't terribly familiar with the franchise or how to get established.
    No doubt there will be a few mods cropping up within the first months of release that'll offer some kind of in-game guide support for the confused and lost.


    I've always enjoyed the X series, so can't see this one falling short of taking the entirety of my attention for the next year or so.
