Press Release

X Rebirth 3.0 and the Teladi Outpost DLC

Official 3.0 Trailer

X Rebirth Update 3.0 released
New update ready in time for the Christmas Holidays


Egosoft is happy to announce the release of Update 3.0 for X Rebirth today, which comes with a host of new features, improvements and bugfixes. These new features cover several different areas and we've created a set of videos which discuss the improvements made with Update 3.0: 

Exploration has always been a big part of the game so it shouldn't be a surprise that Update 3.0 focuses heavily on exploration by introducing the new Crafting Feature (video link). By finding Lockboxes, which are scattered around the universe, you will receive different items which you can use in different ways. Some can be used in missions, others influence NPCs during Smalltalk and some can simply be sold for good money. 

Selling and buying wares is a basic principle of any economic system. To make Trading (video link) more exciting and profitable the whole economy was re-balanced with Update 3.0.

For the Fleet Captains (video link) among you X Rebirth 3.0 resolves the problem of issuing commands to a number of ships at the same time by introducing the new Broadcast command.

While Station Builders (video link) will be pleased to hear that it's now possible to build stations in empty space zones, basically removing the limit of construction places.

We've talked about the updates to trade, fight and build, but we shouldn't forget the last of the four X Rebirth themes: Think. Ideally, you don't only want to think yourself, but also have employees who can think for you. To make your personnel smarter and improve their skills, NPC Education (video link) is another new feature you will find in X Rebirth 3.0.  

But this is far from everything. For those, who prefer a pirate-playing style there are several new ways of Hacking and Sabotaging Stations (video link) and also the Boarding(video link) of ships has been changed .

For more information about Update 3.0 changes and new features, we suggest reading the dedicated 3.0 manual, which you can download here.    

In addition to the many new features and improvements, you'll also be pleased to read that many bugs have been fixed and that the performance in different situations has been improved.

As usual, you can find the full changelog in our forums here. Steam will update your game to the latest version automatically, unless it has been configured otherwise. 

Teladi Outpost DLC

First X Rebirth DLC released: The Teladi Outpost
 
Most people know Teladi as a race of greedy, little lizards who only pay attention to a problem if there's a monetary advantage in it for them. While it's true that the Teladi are a rather profit-orientated species, prejudices have led to many antipathies against them in the known systems. If you've ever spent some time on a platform you've probably already heard some nasty words about the Teladi. Cut off from their own territory and stranded in human systems they're not really welcome in, there are certainly better places a Teladi could wish to be. Fortunately for the Teladi though, times change.
 
A gate realignment has made possible what the Teladi have long hoped for: a connection to two Teladi systems. X Rebirth: The Teladi Outpost opens these systems to the Teladi and of course, to you.
 
These new Teladi systems contain many new interesting places. Among them is probably one of the biggest and most impressive stations ever built: the Habitat-class Teladi superstation, Overwatch. Producing not only ships and wares, it serves as a home to most Teladi and is definitely worth visiting. When travelling the new systems you'll easily notice the new Teladi ships which no human being has ever seen before. You'll find new wares and upgrades for the Skunk and discover one or two secrets as well.    
 
But it's not all roses. While the gate realignment established a connection to Argon and Terran space, the connection to the Teladi territority was lost, so supplies have been cut off. On top of all that, Xenon and Pirate factions exacerbate life for the Teladi and dangerous regions can make the navigation through some sectors quite a challenge.
 
Lots of changes, but also risks await the player in the Teladi Outpost DLC - the perfect place to be for an entrepreneur, a trader or a fighter.
 
So what are you waiting for? Jump into the Albion Skunk, collect your ships and make some profit – or as a Teladi would say: Sahber ssu ogsom ssu eosh, wjasr.

The Retail Version Features a Limited Edition that Includes the Space Engineers Game Together With a Bunch of Extra Content

Prague, Czech Republic (October 31, 2014) – Independent developer Keen Software House announced that their pc-hit space-based sandbox game, Space Engineers, has been released to retail stores this week. The first batch of the retail version will be available in North America through Walmart and Amazon, in South Africa, Australia (exclusively through EB), New Zealand and throughout designated countries in Europe*. The retail version features a Limited Edition that includes Space Engineers, two bonus games from Keen Software House - Miner Wars 2081 and Miner Wars Arena, the official game soundtrack, exclusive art cards, a sticker and heaps of bonus digital content.

“Space Engineers has been growing constantly during its first year and by releasing this special boxed edition we are aiming to introduce the game to a broader audience and give them the chance to try our game” commented Marek Rosa, CEO and Founder of Keen Software House. “Another big reason that makes this release very important is that Space Engineers is one of the very first Early Access games that has made it into retail stores and we believe that starting with our game, players will change their perception about Early Access titles and take them more seriously. In this sense we are somewhat like pioneers that are trying to change the gaming industry!”

Space Engineers is entering its second year in Early Access development and recently celebrated an important milestone of one million copies sold. The game is supported by an enthusiastic community of players who are actively participating in the development by providing feedback and suggestions, and helping to further improve and expand the game.

Important Note - Space Engineers is an Early Access game, which means that it is still under development but already in a very playable state and contains a vast amount of new features that have been added since its first release (e.g. Multiplayer, Survival mode). The game is being improved on a regular basis through updates that add and polish features and content, optimizations and bug fixes.

Hello Everyone
 
We have moved our servers again since a fair amount of our users were having issues reaching our site or having very long load times.  This started when we had to move our network from Go Daddy.  Once we started receiving reports that users were having issues we reported this to the tech's at the new co-location but they could not fixed the problems.  Because of this we took the step of finding a company that could handle these issues and we are so far very happy with the results.  We have also purchased a very high end server so you should all see a real speed increase.
 
Please let us know if you were having an issue and if its now fixed or if you are still having an issue.
