Deep Silver announces X Superbox space compilation
Deep Silver and developer Egosoft have revealed a new compilation to be published based on the famous X series of space trading and combat games.
The X Superbox is labelled as a special collector’s edition, which contains every X game patched and fully up to date, plus a range of additional goodies.
These titles include the original X: Beyond the Frontier, X:Tension (its expansion pack), X2: The Threat (the second game), X3: Reunion (the threequel), and X3: Terran Conflict (a standalone expansion).
The latest version of X3: Terran Conflict includes a new set of missions entitled Balance of Power, and a Dead is Dead mode.
The latter is a special challenging setting for the hardcore where when your character dies, that’s it, game over. Cleverly, it allows you to save via Valve’s Steam service, you just can’t revert to a save after you’ve snuffed it. Obviously you’ll need a Steam account to play this way, though.
All games in the X Superbox will be compatible with Windows 7 (32 and 64-bit), Vista and XP.
Along with all the gaming goodness, the compilation comes with a bonus X Encyclopedia, written by Helge Kautz, author of books based on the X universe. It’s 300 pages long and covers historic events, famous personalities and so on.
A bonus DVD will also come loaded with additional content, including modding tools, game guides, community created artwork and videos, popular scripts and mods. It’s certainly a comprehensive package.
Expect the X Superbox to be blasting into a shop near you on October 8th, priced £34.99.
