Egosoft has just announced that the X3: Terran Conflict space-sim is Gold and it will be launched in 5 October through Steam. I don’t know about you, but I even can’t remember how long it has been since I played a space-sim. Only FPS’s, RTS’s and RPG’s these days.

Terran Conflict will have much more missions, than the previous titles of the X series, that will guide the player through Earth’s evolution in the X Universe.
