X3: Terran Conflict 2.0 – The
Aldrin Missions Now at Major US Retailers!
EGOSOFT’s final installment in
critically acclaimed franchise now available
EGOSOFT, renowned developer of the
acclaimed X franchise of computer games for PC, Mac and Linux, announced today
that the latest chapter of the X series, X: Terran Conflict 2.0 – The Aldrin
Missions, is now available at all major US retail outlets.
X: Terran Conflict 2.0 – The Aldrin
Missions features a host of new missions, new ships and much more – and is also
available on Steam, a leading platform for the delivery and management of PC
games and digital content with over 15 million accounts around the world. This
updated version of X: Terran Conflict is being published by IGS Interactive
“It’s been a long road, but it feels
great to finally give US gamers a chance to go and purchase this fantastic final
installment in the X series,” said Bernd Lehahn, managing director of EGOSOFT.
“The critical response to X: Terran Conflict has been nothing short of
phenomenal, and we’re confident that X3: Terran Conflict 2.0 – The Aldrin
Missions will only build on that success.”
As with the previous titles in the X
series, X: Terran Conflict 2.0 – The Aldrin Missions is a single-player space
simulation featuring fast-paced first-person space combat, free-form open
exploration of a huge dynamic universe, and large-scale management of the
player’s own intergalactic corporation.
In X: Terran Conflict (the
predecessor to 2.0), the long-lost Terran colony of Aldrin was rediscovered.
Now, after numerous years of isolation, the Terrans are keen to bring the
Aldrans back into the fold as part of their massive effort to colonize areas of
space thought lost or inaccessible. No colonization is easy, however, and you
will be asked to not only help in the shaping of the new frontier, but will also
be called upon to provide protection for the colonization effort against forces
determined to oppose the Aldrin Expansion. New Terran stations and complexes, a
new Terran ship and a host of other new features are introduced as you play a
decisive role in the shaping of this new Terran frontier.
“As with X: Terran Conflict, IGS
Interactive is extremely proud to be publishing X3: Terran Conflict 2.0 – The
Aldrin Missions,” said Paul Lombardi, CEO of IGS Interactive Inc. “This is an
absolutely stellar title for both fans of the X franchise and newcomers alike.
EGOSOFT has truly outdone themselves.”
X: Terran Conflict was released in
European retail outlets and on Steam on October 17, 2008. The reviews have been
overwhelmingly positive and X: Terran Conflict currently boasts a 78.2% ranking
on Game Rankings. IGN, the largest and most influential videogame site in the
world, said that “Clearly crafted by a design team on a mission and with a
vision, X3: Terran Conflict is a pretty and impressively ambitious voyage into
the heavens that should satiate the thirst of anyone who pines for life away
from earthly confines.”
