X3 Series Updated on Steam to Support Linux

May 15th, 2013 by TimeDoctor


X3 Gold Box

The X3 series of space hustling sims from Egosoft have received updates on Steam to support Linux. Although previous X-titles were brought to Linux by Linux Game Publishing, these releases are now direct from the developer.

You can get each game in the series individually or all together in a temporarily discounted bundle until May 22nd. If you need a reminder of what these games are about, here’s one:

The X games hurl you into the most detailed universe ever created, right into the middle of an epic, intergalactic story filled with twists and turns at every jump gate. Become the hero once more as you TRADE, FIGHT, BUILD, and THINK your way to victory.

Immerse yourself in a living, breathing universe where all your actions have consequences.

TRADE to make money or upgrade your ship, FIGHT epic battles or capture enemy ships, BUILD your own stations and produce goods in your own factories, and of course always THINK about the consequences of your actions in the realistic simulated universe and dynamic real-time economy.


LGP releases Shadowgrounds, patches X2 & X3, restocks Majesty

September 16th, 2009 by Alkini

The LGP news is piling up. First, they released Shadowgrounds, the precursor to their previously announced next title, Shadowgrounds Survivor:

We have a surprise announcement for today! While we have Shadowgrounds Survivor due out at the end of the week, we are releasing its predecessor, Shadowgrounds, immediately, as a budget title! Get the story from the beginning today, and on Friday, find out what happens next!

Second, for the X2 & X3-related news:

A new patch is now available for X3: Reunion. This patch fixes the most serious issue reported so far, the memory leak that we have been looking for the last few months. If you have been having a problem with the X3 memory footprint, random crashes, or slowdowns, this should fix your problem.

A new patch is now available for X2: The Threat, which makes the sound pulseaudio compatible, and fixes some minor bugs.

X2 has a new version of the Demo available, with all of the improvements that the full [has]. We are also announcing a permanent price cut in X2, down from £30 to £20. Finally, we are announcing that X2 has now been added to our download catalogue. Resellers can download the files immediately, and are able to resell it as of midday tomorrow. Please see your favourite reseller for access. If you’ve been putting off checking out X2 and X3, now is a great time to take a look, with rental versions available as well as purchases!

Lastly, Majesty is back in stock:

For those that have been waiting, Majesty is now back in stock! With a new colour manual, and now with PenguinPlay support, order your new version today! If you already have a copy, and don’t want a new box, all the game features are available in the new Majesty patch which has just been added to lgp_update.
