X2: The Threat is now set to redefine the space-trading genre. Though staying true to X: Beyond the Frontier, its predecessor, X2: The Threat is unique thanks to its freedom of exploration and uninhibited style of gameplay. A first-person space exploration experience, X2: The Threat immerses the player in a dynamic, living, breathing universe, where every event and action has “cause and effect” upon the entire gaming universe. Discover new worlds and life forms across countless sectors of space. Players can become a trader, bounty hunter, pirate, miner or a strategic combination of them all. The choice of how the player experiences that universe is up to them.
