For the uninitiated the X series has been an amazing space game with good longevity. I still have X3 Albion Prelude installed. It is releasing on GOG today (I just checked my account and the files are not ready to download yet). GOG page - https://www.gog.com/game/x4_foundations You cant land on planets like you can in No Mans Sky with this game, but there are large space stations (you can build your own too), and you can fly / fight in any ship with many variattions of weapons while building your fleet and economical support. The dog fighting in all previous games has been superb, I dont doubt this will be more of the same. You need a Graphics card that supports Vulkan Expect all bugs to be fixed within two years (Egosoft are another company historically that are pretty good at polishing up the game and not leaving bugs behind) And the modding community is pretty good too (but usually the German side of the forum is where the more technically adept and dedicated community hangs out) http://forum.egosoft.com/index.php?f=152
For anyone else waiting for better improvements to No Mans Sky, the Atlas Rises update has been announced https://www.nomanssky.com/atlas-rises-update/ For me this makes NMS everything I wanted it to be, the Pathfinder and Foundation updates were good additions, but this looks like the icing on the cake. Just hope the performance has improved since the last update went a bit downhill in that department. There are hints in these notes that it is not the final update too. Currently the Internal depot has been updated today (about 2 hours ago) https://steamdb.info/app/275850/depots/ I expect GOG will (as usual) be the last to receive an update to the manual update files .. Worth the wait though to avoid installing GOG Galaxy client, which also disables any multi-player / server interaction which needs the client to work (now that there is a sort of multi-player element to the game, not my cup of tea) So usually there would follow an experimental beta for public testing, but I think this one will go straight into a full Public release, followed by a few patches as the public find the inevitable system quirks they cannot test and anticipate for.
