X4: Foundations

Fly every spaceship, EXPLORE space or manage an empire. TRADE, FIGHT and BUILD, while you embark on an epic journey.

X4: Foundations is a spaceship simulation game made by Egosoft. It allows you to fly all ships personally. From small scouts over a wide range of ship classes up to the biggest carrier, everything can be piloted from the cockpit or an external view. A big focus in the development of X4 has been to achieve a seamless and immersive experience when moving between ships. You can leave a ship, climb down a ladder, walk over the dock of a large space station into another ship you may have parked there and replace the pilot that was working for you just by clicking on his chair.

Very Good

X4: FOUNDATIONS is the long awaited sequel in the successful X series, brings our most sophisticated universe SIMULATION ever. you can start your journey from a number of different gamestarts and as a number of different characters, each with their own role, set of relationships and different ships and technologies to start with. No matter how you start, you are always free to develop in any other direction. Focus on exploration, make money with illegal trading and theft, command large battle fleets or become the greatest entrepreneur ever. It's all up to you to decide. Building space stations and factories has always been a foundation of the X games. After gaining enough money through fighting or trading, most players want to establish their own economy and start influencing the universe on a larger scale. In X4, it is now possible to be completely free and creative. Stations can be constructed from a variety of modules, be it production modules, living sections, docks or many other types of parts. The powerful new map system allows you to drag and connect modules using a connection system to design your own unique creations. Ships also offer a variety of upgrades. Engines, weapons and other equipment can be added in a graphical editor and actually seen on the ship. After failure of X-Rebirth I can say this is the game I've been waiting for - anything good from X3 and X-Rebirth got combined with modernized GUI and really fun package. The game is beautiful and fun and is going to require a lot of dedication.
