Today is an exceptional day. It brings an event that many surely didn't think possible – the release of X3: Farnham's Legacy, a new game in the popular X3 series. Furthermore, it is free to all owners of X3: Albion Prelude! A dedicated group of players from the Egosoft DevNet community have been working on this project since 2016, and they are hugely excited to unveil the results of their efforts.

You can simply download X3: Farnham's Legacy for free on Steam, if you already own X3: Albion Prelude, while the game will automatically show up in your game collection if you own the Terran War Pack on GOG.

If you enjoy X3: Farnham's Legacy and want to thank the project team, by doing a good deed, you can buy the X3: Farnham's Legacy - Donation Pack (GOG / Steam). 100% of Egosoft's proceeds of this Donation Pack will be forwarded to Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders. If you prefer to make a donation through another channel, please visit the website of Doctors Without Borders.

To feed anticipation for the release of X3: Farnham's Legacy, Egosoft has been conducting short interviews with the project team over the past four weeks. The idea was to find out why they started this project, how they discovered the X series games, and hear some of their insights into the development process. If you missed the interviews so far, here are the direct links to the respective articles on Steam:
