Taking place in the years after X3: Albion Prelude. Since the chaos caused by the gate shutdown really takes hold. This is where X3: Farnham’s Legacy starts very differently from previous games in the X3 series. Trapped in an isolated area of space, players will first need to make use of the new exploration features. As a result, players need to find their way back to civilisation. Afterward, they’ll be able to use the new diplomacy options. So they can help shape their relationships with the factions they find.

The new features don’t end with the storyline, though. There are numerous other improvements, ranging from drone carriers, station building services, and an enhanced player headquarters. All the way to a new ship browser and a hyperlinked encyclopedia. And of course, no new X3 game would be complete without new ships and stations!
