X: Beyond the Frontier andX-Tension were released in together as X-Gold in 2000. A novel, Farnham's Legend, is based on the plot of X Beyond the Frontier Free Download.
Set in the year 2912, in the Beginning of the 30th Century, the player takes the role of Kyle Brennan, an Earth test pilot for the X-Shuttle, better known as theX-Perimental Shuttle, which has the ability to jump from one part of the universe to another via a wormhole without requiring a jumpgate.
During the test jump, something goes drastically wrong and Brennan ends up in an unknown part of space. He encounters an alien race, the Teladi, a highlycapitalist, profit-focused culture. Finding Kyle helpless, they repair his ship andloan him some money. They also give hints on trading in the X Universe, and may tell him (if he asks) about the Argon and other alien races in the X-Universe. The X Universe is a network of sectors linked by jumpgates. With his jumpdrive destroyed, and no idea how to return to Earth, Brennan finds himself stranded, alone and indebted to an alien race.
The player is free to choose how to continue the game, and if or when to pursue the main plot.
Through trade and exploration, Brennan eventually encounters the Argon, a race who appear human. However, it quickly becomes clear that the Argon have no knowledge of Earth, and most dismiss Brennan as a crank when he claims to be from Earth.
He is subsequently led to a group of scientists and scholars known as the Goner, which is an organisation dedicated to preserving information about Earth. He works with them to discover the forgotten history of the Argon — that they are descended from humans who were cut off from Earth centuries ago in a war with rogue machines known as the Terraformers. After convincing the Argon that Earth is real, Brennan works with them — specifically, with Ban Danna, Head of the Argon Secret service — to prevent the Terraformers, now known as the Xenon, from developing a super-weapon.
Depending on his status with the different X-Universe races, Brennan finally forms an alliance to attack the Xenon forces and destroy their super-weapon, thus completing the game. X Beyond the Frontier Free Download PC Game.
There are fifty-four star systems in the X Universe, and within each one there are numerous installations. There is at least one space station in each system, and they range from ordinary factories like solar power plants to shipyards. By trading with them the player makes a profit, which allows one to upgrade the X-Perimental Shuttle with new weapons, better shields, and increased cargo space.
It is possible to trade within a single system, but the player can earn credits much quicker by exploring other systems via the jump gates. Eventually, the player will be able to buy factories and thus earn much greater income.
Although each system has at least one planet, it is not possible to land on any of them. Factories, space stations, and other installations are located far from the planets and stars.
X: BTF was praised for its open-ended gameplay and the large number of systems to explore. The economy in the X Universe is dynamic, with the price of goods varying with supply and demand. For example, selling a large amount of one particular product to a single station will result in the price for further consignments dropping in proportion to their demand. The atmospheric musical score of the game was also praised, as was the varied dialogue one can have with many different aliens. However, several reviews complained that the voice acting, while atmospheric, was hard to understand and could make it difficult to follow the plot. X Beyond the Frontier for PC.
X: BTF was also praised highly for its «spectacular background graphics»,such as «gorgeous colored lighting effects and the highly detailed rotating planets».
However, X: BTF received criticism from some for giving the player so little equipment to start with. For example, the X-Perimental loses its weapons in the accident that brings it to the X Universe. These can be purchased once the player acquires sufficient credits to do so. Until then, the player is defenseless. The ship is also quite slow, and traveling between installations at first takes a long time. A time-accelerator device reduces the transit time, but it needs to be found and purchased, which means the game moves at a frustrating «snail's pace [for] the first 10-20 minutes». Still, [a]«fter as little as an hour of gameplay, with some shrewd trading... you should be able to outfit your X ship with a pair of lasers ... and the time-accelerating 'singularity time distortion engine,'» said one review
The combat system was lightly criticized as «being more of a goal to be overcome than a challenge to be relished», especially given the «suicidal as hell» «kamikaze» nature of enemy pilots, who appear constantly to wish to ram the player.
A final criticism was X: BTF's «skimpy manual», which leaves the player to work out most things for themselves. However, others felt «the documentation was extremely well done» and that «the game actually uses your complete ignorance of what's going on around you to add a sense of adventure and mystery to the tale.» X Beyond the Frontier Download Torrent.
