X Rebirth3 - Incgamers

X Rebirth is out tomorrow, which means it’s the perfect time for a launch trailer. Right? Right.

X Rebirth has you swanning around deep space, doing whatever you like. You can trade, or go into piracy, or work for the police, or build your own empire, or follow the main plot. Developer Egosoft claims that every single ship is doing something, meaning that you continually influence the universe with tiny actions; blow up a freighter, and its cargo will never reach its destination. That destination will then be running low on said cargo, and prices will rise. Etc.

I like the idea, but I’m still not wholly convinced that X Rebirth can live up to its lofty claims. Mind you, I was never a fan of its predecessors, and I’ve got to admit that – judging by this trailer – it’s unbelievably pretty. Peter’s playing around with it right now, so I shall wait for his review. Maybe this will be the X title to fire up my hyperdrive.

Keep an eye out for our review, which’ll probably be next week, and have a gander at an interview Peter conducted with studio director Bernd Lehahn.
