By - | Views: 10,856

The third major expansion X4: Tides of Avarice and another big free update are available now for space sim X4: Foundations. Egosoft continuing showing their commitment to their fans, and for lovers of open-world space sims everywhere.

It's an absolutely huge upgrade too, probably worth jumping back in if you bounced off it at warp speed at any time in the past. Some of what's new includes scrap recycling, AMD FSR support, new achievements, a personal office, new capital ship designs, special NPCs that offer new mission chains, new equipment mods, an expanded Encyclopedia, new voices and the list goes on. There's even more when you look at the DLC that brings in new factions, new areas to explore and much more.

Have a look at the new trailer:

And to Linux!
A great game and I will surely jump in again, as there is so much left to do in my universe.

I just don't seem to be able to get into it like I did with X3:reunion

No clue why as X3 had me hooked for possibly 1000s of hours

Well now that I have a HOTAS I might have to pick up X4 finally. Plus I would like something native to use with the thing as right now the only thing I have that can really take advantage of the Saitek X52 I have is Elite Dangerous and I would like something that can be played offline with it.

Be sure to check out Overload, apart from X4, of course

All ready own Overload and well frankly it doesn't play well with just a standard HOTAS, now I have heard good things about running two sticks in tandem for that particular game.
