In the distant future, the X universe faces a period of profound and irrevocable change. While the universe stumbles towards an uncertain future, countless adventures await as new enemies rise in search of power. Enter a young adventurer and his unlikely female ally traveling in an old, battered ship with a glorious past - two people alone against the galaxy, playing a key part in the events to come. The fate of the universe rests in the hands of the player... X Rebirth represents a spectacular new beginning for the X series, offering loyal fans and newcomers alike a vast, vivid and extremely detailed universe to explore throughout the game. Varied gameplay elements such as action-packed space combat, detailed trading mechanics and high-speed space exploration with fast travel allow players to experience a truly unique space saga that will keep them hooked for dozens of hours. X Rebirth features a whole new user experience - it is easier than ever to start with, and remains as deep as fans expect it.
At this point I have to take a stand for Egosoft. Yeah, the game was more of a miscarriage than a rebirth on release. Just under the 'old' X-Fans, to which I belong, the game seemed strange, with missing features, only one ship etc. It should be a new...
beginning that should offer old hands and newcomers a new experience. Unfortunately, this didn't arrive at the beginning. Nevertheless: after four years patches are still released. So, nobody can say Egosoft just wanted to collect the money. It’s a really good game now, with a great atmosphere, and if you lack old features, you can replace them with a wide range of mods (carriers, capital ship bridge, etc.). And to those who aren't convinced by the story, I want to say that the story wasn't always the best in all X parts. In return, however, you get a universe in which you have all the freedoms and can do and let go before you feel like it. As thumbs up and thanks to Egosoft for constantly working on improvements to their youngest child.
