Expanding the universe
The oncoming huge new expansion, X4: Split Vendetta, will greatly expand the size of the X Universe and introduce two new Split family clans. Of course, they will bring their own realistic economy, along with new weapons, ships, and station modules into the mix.
On top of that, players will participate in exciting new missions and adventures. New gamestarts will also bring more variety to the experience in the biggest sandbox this side of the galaxy.
True to the X games’ motto “Trade, fight, build, think”, players will be able to trade with the Split families, fight them, build their own stations based on the newest modules, as well as think carefully when dealing with the new diplomatic missions.
For the uninitiated, the X series is a sci-fi space trading first-person combat simulator series set in the X Universe. It was first launched in 1999 and has since grown into a whole franchise of its own. In this complex universe, players can enjoy awesome graphics and rich content. Moreover, the games feature hundreds of space stations, thousands of ships, and a realistic economy with prices that change on the basis of supply and demand.
