The collector's edition contains both X³ games, including all add-ons. The new add-on "The Aldrin Missions" for X³: Terran Conflict is released for the first time, offering numerous additional missions, ships, and sectors. The X³: Gold Edition represents the grand finale of the X trilogy, providing many hours of gaming fun.
For those who like to experience that outer space atmosphere outside of the game as well, the X³: Gold Edition also contains a soundtrack CD with music from X³: Terran Conflict.
The award-winning space drama X3: Reunion 2.5 begins in 2935. The Argon fleet is stretched almost to breaking point by the continuing attacks from the aggressive Khaak, while ruthless Yaki pirates hunt for a mysterious relic, and an equally mysterious machine, obviously left behind by an ancient species, poses a whole new set of questions...
X³: Terran Conflict 2.0 creates a bridge back to Earth's solar system. The player gets to take on the roles of various characters from the X universe, or a Terran military pilot, and set out on numerous adventures in the most extensive world of all X games ever. X³: Terran Conflict 2.0 raises questions such as: how has Earth changed in the course of all those years? How are the relationships between Earth and its brethren from the X universe going to develop?
The new add-on, "The Aldrin Missions", features the colony of Aldrin, which was lost centuries ago, and is now once again joining the Terran system. The Terrans are quite eager to reestablish the connections between Aldrin, separated from the rest of the universe for so long, and Earth. The Terrans are putting a huge effort into recolonizing the system that had been presumed lost for so long. The player takes on a crucial role in shaping this new Terran frontier, while exploring new Terran stations and facilities, and making use of a new ship and numerous additional features.
Personal Uplink: Both games now allow players to connect to Egosoft's new "Personal Uplink" community and compare their achievements within the X universe to those of others.
X³: Gold Edition will be released early in the 2nd quarter of 2009.
