    Really excited for this one, I've always been a huge fan of the X series. Even with the fairly bad launch of Rebirth, I have been holding out for the next big instalment in the series to make an appearance.
    Glad to see the developers have gone back to us being able to pilot all the ships as that was one of the major flaws of Rebirth. Hoping for them to launch with all the modding support in place as well since that's a huge part of the X universe for me.

    This'll definitely be going on my pre-order list.

    I love the idea of the X games so much more than I actually enjoy playing them :D But nonetheless I'm excited for this.

    Meh, after being burnt badly with Rebirth I'll hold back my excitement.

    I was the same. Loved X3:TC and AP but skipped Rebirth. I've been watching ObsidianAnt's gaming livestream off and on over the past couple of days and X4 looks to be back on track.



    Looking forward to the headache learning curve and the music. I love X series music, always seems to get the right atmosphere.

    It will be a while till I play it I'm guessing.

    Just a heads up to anyone planning to pick it up, the learning curve is decidedly old school, other than that not much to report in yet as I've barely scratched the surface so far, but early first impression is positive.

    Excellent. Exactly what I was hoping for and why i'll have to wait to invest the time :(

    Came here to ask how the game is. After Rebirth, I'm very shy about buying into this.

    Have a look at the livestream mate until someone answers.

    He's got an overall impressions video that gives a general idea, after 16(?) hours or so he's still saying he's only scratched the surface so I take that as being back to good old form.

    Interesting. Looks like what everyone wanted Rebirth to be in the first place - a newer version of X3 (so X4 is rather apt then I suppose).

    Going to wait for a sale though.

    Having spent most of today with it I'll correct that to very f***ing positive.

    Looking smart to have held off buying it. Apparently plenty of bugs.

    And the scariest thing I just read: "X4:F is best thought of as X:Rebirth v2"

    ****. :sad:

    I watched hours of gameplay footage, I didn't get that impression.

    I'm hoping more like X2. X3 was relatively bland (even by the developers' admission) and Rebirth was a stillbirth. Gimme back my GTA IN SPAAAAAAAAACE + fleets, purple planets and wacky systems.

    Well I've played a few hours and it seems so far to play like X3, there are indeed a few bugs but nothing that has caused any crashes. The only bug that keeps annoying me is getting teleported back to the ship when roaming around the space stations. Performance wise I get 60fps (V-sync appears to be locked but I haven't dug around much) at 3440x1400 on my system (i9-7900x, 32GB RAM, 2080Ti, 970 EVO).

    I'm trying to resist playing this until the new year as I've got enough games on the go at the moment, gives the dev team a good chance to iron out most of the initial issues before I boot it up as well. Probably swap over to this once I have enough of exploring NMS... then this'll probably become my only space game for most of Q1, possibly Q2 as well.

    Glad to see it's performing well on a 3440 resolution, that was my only concern as I don't like downsizing my view.
