Howdy folks, today we are taking a closer look at X4: Tides of Avarice. This is an expansion for the main game so make sure you have that before throwing any money down here. If you have enjoyed the main game and the two previous expansions, I think that it goes without saying, you are probably going to really like what they have done here. As I write this game is just about ready to come out so I thought that it would be pretty neat to take a look at some of the main features of the expansion that has me excited.
New Faces With New Stories To Tell
I have really enjoyed the sci-fi world that has been created here so far, but X4: Tides of Avarice to me has the best premise of any of the expansions to date. Set in a new region, we will come across some new pirates and scavenger factions that take what they want, no matter who is standing in their way. Add to this a strange group of manipulators that are able to harness the power of this strange and powerful new resource and we have a pretty cool sci-fi mystery going on with this expansion.
More Of The Same Is Never A Bad Thing
While the core gameplay of X4: Tides of Avarice has not changed, this expansion is giving you a ton of new things that you can do. From salvaging scrap in outer space or towing a wreck to a plant. You have workstations that you can interact with, new interiors such as a personal office, and much more. If you already enjoyed what X4: Foundations was offering, you are going to be very happy with the changes that are coming with this new expansion. It is giving you more of the same, but they are expanding things that little bit more which I think is very cool. As far as space sims go, not many are as deep and expansive as this one here.
That Latest Update
Along with the X4: Tides of Avarice is the new 5.00 update for the base game. I am very impressed with what I have seen here so far, but I do want to take a moment to specifically talk about the presentation of the game. This looks awesome, I think that they have done a really wonderful job of making you feel like you are someone who is trying to make their mark on the universe. If you enjoy sci-fi, I am sure you will get a real kick out of the way this game looks. The new ships that are in this game are the best to date, especially this epic looking space pirate ship called The Erlking!
Look, if you are already invested in the world of X4: Foundations, you already know exactly what X4: Tides of Avarice is all about and probably have the expansion on pre-order already. I think that this is going to give you a ton of stuff to do, but the new 5.00 update that is part of this is also going to make the whole game in general, look and play better than it has done before.
- This is looking like the best expansion yet
- I love the overall style they have going on here with this game
- I like the mystery aspect of the new story
- It is part of the new 5.00 update for X4: Foundations
- It can be a bit of a “what the hell am I supposed to do?” kind of thing
- You already have to be pretty invested in this series to care about this
