Update 2.0 Now Available for X4: Foundations, Linux Support Coming in Beta v 2.20

Egosoft have launched the v 2.0 update for space simulator X4: Foundations.

Along with Japanese and Russian localization, the new update includes shipyards, mods, and re-balancing:

  • Player owned shipyards, wharfs and equipment docks:
    Players can now build and operate their own shipyards. This allows leaving an even deeper impact on the game’s economy. Build ships for yourself or deliver them to the war factions. Participate in the faction wars on the highest possible level or just make a lot of profitsss.
  • Steam Workshop integration:
    Starting with version 2.00 X4: Foundations now also supports installing game mods via the Steam workshop. This will make it easier than ever for players to try out some of the already existing cool X4 mods!
  • Rebalancing of fight and economy:
    With Update 2.00 we changed a lot of parameters of the game economy and fight balancing. The goals include making crew gaining experience a bit easier, but also making a lot of changes to the turret and capital ship fight balancing.

In addition, the beta for version 2.20 is coming “very soon”. The beta will improve mouse controls. “Namely a more flexible configuration of the right mouse button and the often requested classic direct mouse steering (a.k.a. “boresight” mode).” In addition, the beta will introduce Linux support.

To celebrate the new update, the game is 25% off until March 7th on Steam. You can find the full change-log here.

X4: Foundations is out now on Windows PC (via Steam).
