Classic X Space Sim Games Now Available on GOG

x 11-09-15-1

Today, the classic titles from the space simulation series X were published on Good Old Games.

The games released include X Gold (X: Beyond the Frontier with the X-tension expansion pack), X2: The Threat, X3: Reunion and the standalone expansion pack X3: Terran War Pack (which consists of Terran Conflict and Albion Prelude). The more recent X: Rebirth is not included but then again, it’s not like anyone wants to play it.

The X series can be bought here. Each of the games is at 50% discount right now and if you buy them all, you only pay 25% of the usual price.

I play games (I have a preference for old, weird and difficult ones but that's not the rule) and write articles about them that are sometimes a bit too long. Sometimes I also do things other than gaming, I swear.

    Classic _and_ broken by design.

    Glad to see them not bring up X:Rebirth.

    I still play X3: Albion Prelude quite a bit, partially because it’s awesome and partially because X: Rebirth was such a bitter bitter disappointment. The X games, minus the aforementioned X: Rebirth, are some of the best comprehensive space sims out there and offer you giant sandboxes in which you can do as you please (fight, build, explore, trade, etc.). The games do, however, come with a STEEP learning curve. Well worth the time and effort to learn, though, in my opinion, as building a galactic trading empire from the ground up, then using its economy to fuel a fleet consisting of multiple destroyers, carriers, frigates, corvettes, and dozens of fighters, then leading said fleet into a sector and going to war is a joy unlike any other.

    I was always interested in those but I fear they might be too complicated for me, I have no experience in this genre really.

    Egosoft support has always offered standalone executables for their games purchased through Steam. They like to lock into Steam to allow easy automatic updating, which GOG hasn’t supported until recently (GOG Galaxy is pretty nice).
