With the Shady Business Update X3: Albion Prelude receives three unique new plot lines and for the first time can be completely controlled with gamepads!.
X3: Albion Prelude 3.0 - Shady Business is available as a FREE update to everybody who owns X3: Albion Prelude. The game can be bought in the X3: Terran War Pack bundle or the ultimate collection of the classic X Universe, the X Superbox.
New Update to be released in July 2012 will add a Terran plot to the biggest X universe ever. Trade, Fight, Build, Think. All the freedom you ever wanted in a space simulation.
Available for purchase on Steam (www.steampowered.com) or for MAC on the Appstore.
The latest update includes two new mini-plots and a number of additional features and bugfixes.
One of the new mini-plots draws the Boron deeper into the war than ever before and provides the player with access to the mysterious Xenon HUB. The second re-introduces the secret Unfocussed Jumpdrive and the mighty Player Headquarters, the latter providing a new function to easily equip newly built or bought ships -- a function that all fleet commanders will no doubt appreciate.
With the ongoing war and the associated investment in new assets, it's no surprise that the various races have come up with a new type of ship to support their war fleets. With version 2.0 the X-Universe sees the first examples of this new category of fast, light escort carrier. If you are too busy doing other things to follow the regular war reports, version 2.0 brings a function to disable these reports until you want to take part in the war again. In addition, new graphs give you a better overview of your property and your current progress. We also have good news for all Polish players, as X3AP version 2.0 will include a complete Polish text translation.
X3: Albion Prelude plays in a time between the old and the new X Universe. It shows a universe in flux, and prepares players for things to come. The old X Universe is passing; a new X Universe is about to be created.
