Egosoft's X series gets a 'fresh beginning' in X Rebirth for the PC.
In the distant future, the X universe faces a period of profound and irrevocable change. While the universe stumbles towards an uncertain future, countless adventures await as new enemies rise in search of power. Enter a young adventurer and his unlikely female ally traveling in an old, battered ship with a glorious past - two people alone against the galaxy, playing a key part in the events to come.X Rebirth is set to launch for the PC during the fourth quarter of 2011.
