X Rebirth Launches This November, System Specs Detailed

X Rebirth, a title originally slated for a 2011 release, has just been given a proper release date. It’s due to come out on Nov. 15 in Europe, followed by Nov. 19 in North America, developer Egosoft and publisher Deep Silver have confirmed.

The game, which is a part of Egosoft’s X Universe series, is best described as a sandbox space sim in that it provides players the freedom to do whatever they want in the vastness of space, ranging from simple things like mining and fighting space pirates, to establishing an intergalactic empire.

“After seven years in development, people are naturally wondering why X Rebirth took so much time,” says Egosoft’s Studio Head Bernd Lehahn.

“The reason for this is the sheer scope of our project. We not only want our universe to be huge, we want it to be huge and teeming with life. To me, the success of the Star Citizen funding shows that many people are waiting for our kind of game. A single factory compound in X Rebirth may consist of hundreds of buildings, some of which are so large that ships measuring kilometers in length can dock inside them. The player can even disembark in order to explore the station and meet its inhabitants.”

In addition to the release announcement, Egosoft has revealed the system requirements for the game.

Hell, about damn time. I only hope they open it up for modding through steam, as many in x community modded the ever livin’ crap outta the x games.
