Big news for the highly-reviewed X4: Foundations
Egosoft announced today that the X franchise's first-ever online mode is now in BETA. X4: Foundations: Online Ventures lets players send a ship into other players' universes and allows visitors into their own. X4: Foundations: Online Ventures is the centerpiece of the game's first update, which also adds the ability to ask people for directions, reintroduces a more talkative Betty shipboard computer and fixes a list of issues.
While the online venture gameplay is now available to all with the normal version of X4: Foundations on Steam and GOG, the online feature itself is still in BETA. There is no risk to your saved games or to stability, but the ventures themselves might go wrong.
Participation in this new online mode is entirely optional and only possible with one unmodified saved game at a time!
