Talking X3: The Reunion has gone gold.

From the website

Egosoft is today pleased to announce that X3: Reunion, the latest in the exciting space simulation series of X-Universe games has “gone Gold” with release dates to be shortly confirmed by regional publishers. The UK anticipated release date is expected to be confirmed by Deepsilver as 28 October 2005. The German version will follow very soon after.

Speaking from the Egosoft HQ in Würselen, Germany CEO Bernd Lehahn confirmed “X3 marks a genuine and dramatic milestone in our game development. Close on 2 years of hard work have brought us to the point where we are ready to take the space genre onto a whole new level and directly into the mainstream of gaming, and to keep it fresh into the future.”

Egosoft would like to thank our staff, publishers and all the fans who have helped bring us this far, and will continue with us for the future.

As a result of the news we have all been waiting so long for, you can now pre-order X3: Reunion direct from the Egosoft shop. English versions will be available first, and as a bonus will be shipping with a free copy of Helge Kautz's Farnham's Legend.

Stocks of this popular book, outlining the fiction and history behind the creation and characters of the X-Universe are strictly limited however, so they will be delivered on a first-come first-served basis.

Pre-orders are likely to be the English United Kingdom version no matter the destination region, and will be released on DVD. Orders will be sent via air-mail to destinations outside of Germany - should any changes be made to this early news then we will update you as soon as possible.

German pre-orders have two separate options as listed in the Egosoft online shop. One is the standard DVD version, whilst the other is the Collectors Edition, with the additional bonus material as already listed.

Lastly, whilst X³: Reunion is available exclusively on DVD in Europe, we are pleased to confirm that our US publishers Enlight will be distributing on both CD and DVD. Different formats may be exclusive to certain retailers, and once final local agreements are reached we will be pleased to update you all.

There is a living breathing universe waiting for you to fight, barter, steal, pirate, police, trade and build your way through it. Are you up to the challenge to claim the ultimate prize?
I had a feeling that oct 17th release date would be the Gold date, well almost though.

I was definitly hoping for a gold message this month. X3 will be the most beautiful space game to date, and if they managed to work out the few flaws that X2 had, IŽm sure it will be not just a beautiful game, but actually a very very good game.

I donŽt think we will see a demo before the game hits retail shelves. Also I read that X3 wonŽt have any 2D or 3D ****pits, so youŽll fly thru space either using the FPS-like camera or external camera. This disappointed me a little, but then again I can understand that it would be a lot of work to make ****pits for 70+ spaceships.
