Apple Games Features X3: Terran Conflict
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games has posted a new article about Egosoft's X3: Terran Conflict, recently brought to Mac by Virtual Programming. The final chapter in the X3 saga continues the story of human, alien, and machine interaction with a story that includes exploration of the once isolated Earth solar system. Apple's article includes commentary from Egosoft's Bernd Lehahn and a list of websites filled with information about the game and its history.

As you complete Terran Conflict’s intersecting storylines, you unlock more characters who offer new challenges, allowing you to see the X Universe through the eyes of other races, including the aquatic Boron, the ritualistic insect-like Paranid, the aggressive Split, and the reptilian Teladi. The game’s eight corporations also offer secondary storylines that you can follow to see where they lead; don’t forget to explore out-of-the-way places too: they may hold fascinating secrets.

Lehahn elaborates: “When you choose a character, you basically select a starting point: a different ship, different relations to the races, another place to start in this huge universe, and a few special missions.”

There’s plenty to explore, and you decide how to experience those adventures: you can accumulate resources and ply the trading lanes with your wares, amassing a vast fortune in the process, or you can assemble a mighty military operation, building factories to produce ships and weapons and even training marines to board enemy capitol ships. Or you can travel the shady side and become an intergalactic pirate; just make sure you’re willing to endure the wrath of most of the pilots you come across.
