Following the award-winning X2: The Threat, the war for control of the universe continues in the graphically enhanced X3: Reunion.

With dynamic AI and a vast array of life, entire fleets can be assembled to accompany players from engaging in fierce battles to negotiating trades. Utilize strong-arm tactics and economic prowess to ascertain complete dominance of the universe.
Here are some key features of "X3: Reunion":
