    So looks like Egosoft is making a VR version of their X: Rebirth game. If you never played an X Universe game it is essentially a 4X/Space Traders sort of game played from a First Person perspective. Rebirth upon it's release was a mixed bag as it was not as in depth as the previous X games though the learning curve was a bit lower (supposedly) I love the series I am excited to try this out in VR but even more exciting was X4 was announced to be in development (Which we knew) but this hopefully means there will be future VR support for that one as well.

    X-Universe News Edition 61 announcing X Rebirth VR Edition, X4 and updates to X Rebirth and the X3 games

    So any other X Universe fans here?

    OK, I honestly didn't know about that game, but looking the screenshots and the info on Steam looks pretty great.

    They are really amazing games. Rebirth had a lot of issues upon release and they fixed a lot of it but it wasn't the game long term fans were looking for. You can build literal space empires and control fleets at least in the older games. People would take over sectors and slowly push their empires outwards. Plus it is quite moddable so there is a sizable modding community. I always recommend people try X3: Terran Conflict but just be aware its got a bit of a learning curve. There is a good guide out there that helps called X3 Handbook from Apricot. Well worth it to read if it is something you want to try. For absolutely new plays X: Rebirth isn't a bad place to start IMO but it does have some rough edges. Definitely check out some of the sub-reddits on it if you get a chance. The developers are also quite active in their subreddits and their internal forums they run.
