Egosoft's X series on PC is expanding its space horizon in new product X3: Terran Conflict, which will act as a grand finale to the trilogy.
Terran Conflict's a stand-alone title that'll take X recruits back to Earth's solar system where they'll get to strap on boots as different characters in the games universe or, explains the developer, a Terran military pilot.
Egosoft's saying that the game features the largest universe yet seen in the series - "for X: Terran Conflict will offer more missions than any other X game before".
It's currently pencilled in for release in Q3 2008. No screenshots as yet, but they can't be far off.
Egosoft's X series offers adventure, combat and trading in a sandbox space world, X3: Reunion in particular proving very good indeed.
