Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to bring X Rebirth VR Edition to VR enthusiasts as soon as possible and get your opinion about our vision of a space game in VR. There are mainly two big focus areas during Early Access:

  1. The VR controller based UI: The XR VR Edition has an exciting new method to control the game. The HTC Vive controller can be used to point at UI elements and interact directly with the cockpit. We are looking forward to receive feedback by customers on the quality of this experience and improve it further before the official public release.
  2. The new Vulkan-based high performance graphics engine is still relatively early in development. This engine is designed particularly for our next big project: X4. The Early Access phase of XR VR Edition allows us to test this new technology on a wide range of different hardware.

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Between one and three months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“In addition to the two main areas of focus (VR user experience and Vulkan-based rendering engine), we are also finalising some other areas of the game which are currently in Beta. For example:

  1. Completing localisation to all supported languages (see list)
  2. Improving tutorial missions
  3. Adding Steam Workshop support

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is already very robust and well tested. We intend to keep savegames compatible beyond the duration of Early Access.

The following areas are still under development during Early Access and therefore may be incomplete:

  1. VR experience especially with VR controller (Vive wand)
  2. Vulkan based rendering engine (could effect stability or graphical quality)
  3. Localisation (can mean missing or incorrect text)

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to raise the price when leaving Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“To participate in the development process of VR Edition please subscribe to the EGOSOFT forum and visit the X Rebirth VR Edition forum. This will be the place to report bugs, make suggestions for the game and get updates about our future plans.

We will also try to post on the Steam forums, but cannot provide the same level of service there.”
