The newest iteration in the X franchise is vying to become the new biggest thing ala Eve Online. X Rebirth has launched on Steam and features a fully simulated space economy, as well as fleet warfare.

X Rebirth is striving to be the most realistic and persistent space simulator, allowing you to build your own economic and military empire, battle others for supremacy, or do whatever you like in this space sandbox. Every ship will have a purpose – as the description explains:

Every ship you see has a task. Stop a freighter from reaching its destination and its cargo will be stopped too, causing prices to rise.

I don’t know if I’d want to get into the whole space battle thing, but I really like the idea of building.

Create your own empire! From trading stations to large factories, farms to hightech military complexes, everything can belong to you. Build for trade and profit or to strengthen your military presence and dominate your enemies.

With their release came a launch trailer. I’ve got to say, the game looks really beautiful. All in-game footage, it’s pretty impressive. For those who love their space sandboxes and are looking for something new and awesome, I have a feeling this will be the game. It does cost a pretty penny, though, selling on Steam for Windows only at $50. But just check out this trailer:
