X³: Terran Conflict is a computer game in the X series developed by Egosoft and released in the fall of 2008. It is the sequel to X3: Reunion and adds ships, station construction details, and additional trade management features. The release has seen a major update and minor patches to improve playability and resolve bugs. The game has been released to both European and North American markets. There is an expansion titled X3: Albion Prelude
The biggest change from X3: Reunion is the addition of The Terran's, inhabitants of Earth. New sectors, ships, and missions. There are mini-expansions that came along with the updates: "The Aldrin Missions"(with 2.0) and "Balance of Power Missions" (with 3.0). The game retains most of the game starts from Reunion, with the exception of Julian Brennan. To start you either have to pick the Terran Defender game start, or have a moderately good reputation with the Argons and go to Omicron Lyrae.
