X Rebirth release date announced

New space sim trailer released.

Space simulation X Rebirth launches on 15th November 2013

The game - seven years in the making - is the latest in German studio Egosoft's X Universe series.

Egosoft boss Bernd Lehahn said X Rebirth had taken so long to create because the developer wanted to achieve a "huge scale".

"I do not mean the physical size of the universe which is easy to increase," he said. "I am talking about a living, breathing futuristic universe crawling with life.

"Call them details, but at the end of the day they matter, and make the universe real."

X Rebirth no longer requires a PhD in advanced space game menus, according to Egosoft. Expect intuitive controls and streamlined menus. But there's still a fully simulated economy and a complex geopolitical environment. And on the combat side, space battles range from one-on-one skirmishes to huge fleet engagements.

To celebrate the announcement, a new trailer was released. Watch it below.

Lehahn said he will host a Reddit AMA soon, so keep an eye out for that one.
