After the thoroughly mediocre launch of X Rebirth Egosoft has now finally returned with an announcement for a brand new entry in the X series. Once it arrives X4: Foundations will bring with it the most sophisticated universe simulation the series has seen to date, the ability to explore, fight and trade with a variety of unique ships, and perhaps most interestingly of all, the options to construct your very own modular space station.

There are simply far too many details for me to cover in brief, so if you're interested in an overview of what exactly X4: Foundations is all about, you'll find what you seek in the recently posted announcement video down below. Have a look, its quite interesting:

If all of this looks like something you might enjoy, you'll be glad to hear that you won't have to wait for too long as X4: Foundations has been pinned for a 2018 release, though I'm afraid no date has been given just yet. On the other hand, if you would like to delve through all of the new features and gameplay details, make sure to visit either Steam or the official website as the developers have prepared a rather extensive list. Its going to take you quite a while to read through all of it, but on the positive side you'll know exactly what X4: Foundations is planning to achieve, so if you're a fan of the series I would say its well worth the effort.
