X Rebirth represents a spectacular new beginning for the X series
X Rebirth offers loyal fans and newcomers alike a vast, vivid and extremely detailed universe to explore and master. 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.
TRADE: The backbone of all X games is a fully simulated economy based on supply and demand and within a complex geopolitical environment. Your actions in this universe matter to a degree never before seen in space simulations because every ship and station in this game REALLY does have a task.
Stop a freighter from reaching its destination and its cargo will be stopped too, causing prices to rise.
FIGHT: Battles in X Rebirth know no limits. While beginners start with one ship, pros will own fleets of ships comprised of all sizes and classes. Battles will be fought on every scale, from one-on-one skirmishes to epic winner-take-all engagements between fleets. Which faction you fight for is up to you. Be a pirate or work for the police, join the military or just fight for yourself.
Take the action right into massive structures. Target turrets and shield generators to weaken your enemy, damage engines and jump drives to prevent their ships from escaping, or stop their factories producing to cripple their economy.
BUILD: Create your own empire! From trade stations to large factories, from farms to high tech military complexes - everything can be built by the player. As you progress through the game, you decide which stations to build in order to increase your influence and standing in the universe. For example, commercial stations can be built to earn money through trading, while military installations can be built to help win battles.
Extend and upgrade your stations to make them operate more efﬁciently, with every element visible in glorious animated detail. Harvest your own resources to keep your empire running smoothly.
THINK: A detailed and rich backstory with a deep and complex plot awaits you. Players can choose to engage in the missions related to the plot, or to follow their own path. Either way, the universe awaiting them will always be fascinating and interesting to explore and experience. Create your destiny.
Get up-close and personal with aliens and humans alike. Land on stations, meet people, then accept missions from them or hire them as crew members for your ships.
TRADE, FIGHT, BUILD, THINK... in the X Universe.
