We're only two weeks away from the release of the new X4: Tides of Avarice
expansion and the accompanying major update for X4: Foundations itself. We're therefore moving from Beta to Release Candidate (RC) versions, and RC 1 of 5.00 is now available for download. As you can imagine, we're not adding major new features at this late stage, and are concentrating our efforts on fixes and smaller improvements. You can find the changelog in our forums
X4: Tides of Avarice - content creator videos incoming!
If you're not afraid of spoilers, you'll no doubt be excited to hear that the first videos featuring X4: Tides of Avarice content will be hitting the web tomorrow. A curated group of content creators has been given access to the closed beta version of X4: Tides of Avarice a few weeks ago, and have been playing this not-yet-final version. Starting from tomorrow, March 1, 2pm CET
(1pm GMT / 8am EST / 5am PST), these content creators will be allowed to upload their videos. Keep your eyes peeled - or give them a wide berth, if you prefer!
Thanks a lot for the support in the beta testing phase!
