Deep Silver revealed that they're to publish Egosoft's X³: Albion Prelude this December 15th, dropping a new trailer into the mix to whet the appetite for the new game which will serve as a precursor to next year's biggie: X Rebirth.

"X³: Albion Prelude takes place in a time between the old and the new X Universe," Deep Silver have stated. "It shows a universe in flux, and prepares players for things to come. The old X Universe is passing; a new X Universe is about to be created.

"The X universe is undergoing a period of massive change. What started as a conflict of interest between the Earth and the races of the X Universe has now escalated into a full scale war. With the war as a backdrop, corporations are vying for power and are driving the X Universe in a new direction. A technological breakthrough will soon allow massive accelerators, forming highways in space and allowing the economy to expand in an unprecedented scale. Highways, a key feature of X Rebirth, are not yet ready, but you can see them being built and participate in the power struggles around the construction of much larger self sustaining economies."

Players who already own X³: Terran Conflict will be able to pick up the add-on for €9,99, though the new title will be free for those who already bought the X³ Superbox. For those players new to the X Series, X³: Terran Conflict and X³: Albion Prelude will be available as a package for €19,99.

Following the Steam version of X³: Albion Prelude, there'll be a special retail edition with additional content in Q1 2012.

Dammit, I knew I should have purchased the Superbox instead of Gold when the Steam summer camp sale was on...
