X3: Albion Prelude 1.1 Patch Released

News PC FPS Simulation Deep Silver

For players of the latest game in the X universe, X3: Albion Prelude, a new patch has been released that addresses some serious issues with this game. Specifically, there was a major glitch that severely impacte3d on the games performance over long game sessions, which are incredibly common in this kind of game (for me, I would just leave my game running over night and come back to find my traders had netted me a nice income).

Among the major issue listed above, there have been a number of significant improvements within the game, listed below –
