X4: Foundations Update 7.00 and X4: Timelines DLC are out now

By - | Views: 30,202

X4: Foundations 7.00 Update and X4: Timelines from Egosoft bring some huge changes to the huge space sim and there's never been a better time to try it out.

The new expansion for starters, X4: Timelines, is something quite different. Designed for new players and veterns alike, Egosoft say it uses "novel ways to introduce new players to X4's core gameplay mechanics" and it introduces a whole new storyline that takes place outside the main X4 sandbox so its properly standalone (but still a DLC) that will give you "colossal challenges and unexpected excursions into the depths of the X series lore and history" and it's an "adventure that transcends time and space"

Check out the DLC trailer:

On top of that of course is the next major free upgrade, X4: Foundations 7.00. This brings in additional advice for new players, expanded tutorials, improved AI, a FOV slider, TAA support, improved explosions, improved shadows, additional sectors and landmarks, new accessibility options, a customizable radial menu for quick access to actions, a new late-game crisis for advanced players and so much more.

While Gothic is my most favourite game of all time this game, at least for me, may be the best game of all time. At least at the moment, haha.
Right now I am looking for games where the whole world is simulated and it goes on and on even without you doing anything. And this game is exactly that. You can just do nothing and after, admittedly probably several hundreds of hours, you will realise that the Xenon have conquered the whole, known universe. Or they might not have.

This is actually quite playable on the Deck, even performance-wise it works surprisingly well. The biggest issue I had (and it's a big one) was with the map, which has buggy controller support. I tried different configurations but even with the touchscreen, it's pretty much impossible to pan the map and select stuff on it. Hopefully with the update they fixed this.

Thanks for the feedback, guys! From what I´m reading in your comments, it seems to be playable and enjoyable for the most part on the Steam Deck. If I have to switch to Desktop for some parts of the game (base building), thats fine for me as long as I can play most of it on the Deck.
