Wednesday, 20th April 2011 18:54 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Deep Silver and developer Egosoft today announced the latest game set in the X Universe, X Rebirth, which will include a “radically new game design and top notch graphics.”

The space-sim heralds a fresh beginning, bringing with it a number of gameplay innovations “without compromising its successful origins.”

Set in the distant future, the X universe’s future is uncertain, and countless adventures will await players as new enemies come onto the scene in search of power. You, a young adventurer with an “unlikely female ally,” are travelling about in and old, beat-up ship and play a key art in the events as they play out.

According to the press release, the game contains a large universe to explore throughout the game along with varied gameplay elements such as space combat, trading mechanics and fast travel throughout the galaxies. X

X Rebirth will be released on PC and is expected during Q4 this year.

    @6 To be honest: No, they shouldn’t. There are way too many things you can do with the keyboard to make a console version out of this. Playing this game with just a controller won’t work!!

    I’m not saying it has to be perfect, but Darkstar One showed that the basics can be done.

    DarkStar One showed the negative aspects of it as well, as it was a very shallow game that ultimately wasn’t anywhere near as satisfying as the X-games.
