Deep Silver announces X Rebirth

Is a "fresh beginning" for series.

Space simulation series X has returned after a three year hiatus.

Deep Silver has announced X Rebirth, a game it describes as a "fresh beginning" for the X Universe.

German developer Egosoft has created "radically new game design", "detailed" trading mechanics and high-speed space exploration.

"The space simulation X Rebirth heralds more than just an additional chapter within the X series, it is a fresh beginning bringing with it a number of gameplay innovations without compromising its successful origins," reads the official blurb.

The game launches in the fourth quarter of the year on the PC.

The first X game, X-Beyond the Frontier, launched in 1999. It was followed by a number of sequels and spin-offs.

The last game, X3: Terran Conflict, launched in 2008 and was described as the fourth and final game in the X series of space adventures.
