About

A game from the X series of games.

The whole series consists of four main games - X: Beyond the Frontier, X2: The Threat, X3: Reunion and X Rebirth - and the sequels to them.

Sequels, which include X3: Terran Conflict, can be considered as stand-alone games, their difference from the "main" games is that the sequels develop the ideas that first appear in the "main" games.

Genre of the X Series

All games in the series can be classified as “space trading and combat game”.

The general formula for the genre is very stable for years: the player begins with small spaceship with little money or status and works hard gaining status and power through trading, exploration, combat or a mix of various methods.

The plot in such games usually does not limit the player. The X series of games, for instance, allows the player to act, figuratively speaking, “in sandbox mode” - to perform all actions without restricting themselves to the plot.

X3: Terran Conflict

This is a stand-alone game based on X3: Reunion. It develops new plot lines and features.

The game has only single-player mode, but the player can play the role of many characters.

The player’s ship crosses areas of the universe inhabited and controlled by different races. All these spaces are interconnected due to the presence of special devices, Jumpgates, allowing for a large-scale travel in the game universe.

In the game world there are many stations and ships with which you can interact, in accordance with the genre of the entire series of games.

Updates

Several updates were released for the game, and this should be taken into account, for these updates corrected significant errors that were found after the official release of the game.

X3: Terran Conflict reviews and comments

Translated by

This Game, like all X-games, Is a great Open World, Sci-fi Computer Game, even today it represents for me a Milestone that other "newer" titles must reach first. With its System of military and "social" Ranks among the different Races and Companies, the open and dynamic Trading System, the Possibility of commanding large Quantities of Spacecraft. The very large Number of most beautiful Spaceships, which you can "fly" yourself and the Ability to recruit and manage Staff. In Addition, you can determine for yourself by your Actions whether one makes a Trade Simulation, a space slaughter epic or a Space adventure, an Ane-game game out of it. Whether you enter a "cold" war on the side of the United Nations or as a Terraner, or act as the most notorious Pirate in the Universe. Anything is possible here! Although the Game also has some Quirks (AI sometimes has Trouble controlling Ships sensibly) and the Universe presented has far too few Sectors.;) Whether with or without Patches, it's a great Game, even if it's been under its Belt for a number of Years. HABE THE SPIEL SEIT ES ON THE MARKT IS!!! Can also use the Scores At Steam. The specified playing Time of Steam is funny here, it is certainly several 1000 Hours that I have invested, invest and will invest here.

The X-Series is a Revelation in Simulation, Construction and Combat. Of course, getting into this Game is hard, that's the Way it's supposed to be. No one is tackled here with Velvet Gloves – get to know the Game and the Controls. Do your job player! Relying solely on iname Information is simply unreasonable for some pampered players these days. The true Player can be seen in the Fact that er/she Drifts around the Egosoft Forum, Seizewell and X-Vikeneite and gathers important Information (Map, landless Ships). Getting In, 2 Hours of Playing and then making one on thick Pants is not here. If only after 40 – 50 Hours, i.e. the first small Complex is up And running, you can slowly venture into the Combat Hustle and bustle with appropriate Equipment. Anyone who believes this is some Kind of Freelancer is on the Wrong Track. The Game is tremendously extensive. It Is the different Factions, their Factories, Weapons, Missiles as well as the different Types of Ships and –. And then we move on to The Ship's Purchase itself ... Speed, Cargo hold, Shields, Shield Generators, Hangar, Gun Pranks or the Rank required. Clearly, especially at the Beginning, the Player is slain with Information, but good Information is available in the Forum and should answer most Questions. Working without external Sources of Information is quite negligent and can be very frustrating. The Orders are not special, but what "Quests" can be found in Races a la Need for Speed, for example. Often it's "shoot down" or "bring me," especially the Xenon Hub plot (the 75,000 Micochips were quite rough). Often the Missions are without time Limits and can be neglected. What is particularly Fun are the Battles with the own Carriers, Destroyers and Hunters against the enemy Xenon. When your own Destroyer (with me the M2 Osaka) is bought for the First Time and sent into battle, you already feel a little reproduous.
