'X³: Albion Prelude' Announced - Screens

by Rainier on Dec. 7, 2011 @ 12:07 p.m. PST

X³: Albion Prelude plays in a time between the old and the new X Universe. It shows a universe in flux, and prepares players for things to come. The old X Universe is passing; a new X Universe is about to be created.

The X universe is undergoing a period of massive change. What started as a conflict of interest between the Earth and the races of the X Universe has now escalated into a full scale war. Play a part in a war scenario bigger than anything the X Universe has ever seen before!

With the war as a backdrop, corporations are vying for power and are driving the X Universe in a new direction. A technological breakthrough will soon allow massive accelerators, forming highways in space and allowing the economy to expand in an unprecedented scale. Highways, a key feature of X Rebirth, are not yet ready, but you can see them being built and participate in the power struggles around the construction of much larger self sustaining economies.

Key Features:

  • A new plot throws you into the power struggle between corporations at a time of war.
  • More than 30 new ships and stations
  • New Stock Exchange feature allows advanced investment strategies
  • Improved graphics quality setting for high-end machines
  • Improved user interface introducing charts to visualize economic developments
  • Support for head tracking

Note: X³: Albion Prelude will not be compatible with save-games from X³: Terran Conflict.

If you buy the X: Superbox, or already own it, X³: Albion Prelude will be available as a free download via Steam. If you already have X³: Terran Conflict then X³: Albion Prelude will be available at an add--on price of just €9,99, for players new to the X Series, X³: Terran Conflict and X³: Albion Prelude will be available as a package for €19,99, while a standalone version of X³: Albion Prelude will be available from the MAC Appstore soon for €19,99.

Following the Steam version of X³: Albion Prelude Deep Silver will also release a special new retail edition with additional content in Q1 2012.
