Expansion pack for the open-ended PC space simulation due in early 2005. First screens inside.
German games publisher Deep Silver has announced an expansion pack for its PC space simulation X2: The Threat. Once again developed by EgoSoft, the expansion, titled X2: The Return, is scheduled for release in February 2005.
Originally released in late 2003, X2: The Threat offers a free-roaming universe in the vein of classic space trading games such as Elite and Privateer. Players start off with just a ship, and can build themselves an economic empire, complete with installations, trading routes, and spy satellites. While details on the expansion pack are slim, X2: The Return will add a new story line that can be followed--or not--while players explore the game's immense world.
