Last week we mentioned that X3: Reunion for Linux was going forward with beta testing, which is going on ten months after Linux Game Publishing originally announced they would be porting this X2 - The Threat sequel (the original announcement). Well, those fortunate to have closed-beta access privileges at Linux Game Publishing were finally greeted with the X3: Reunion Linux binary yesterday. In addition to the Linux binary, there is also support for DragonflyBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD. X3: Reunion was originally supposed to ship for Linux back in August, but seeing as the closed beta testing hadn't even started until yesterday, don't expect the final release until the first half of 2008.

Below are a couple screenshots from the X3: Reunion installation process on Ubuntu 7.10 "Gutsy Gibbon". Later on we will be benchmarking future beta X3 releases at Phoronix. LGP's version of X3: Reunion does support the French, German, and Italian language packs. Also supported is the mod kit, cockpit mod, and bonus in-game functionality. X3: Reunion originally shipped for Windows and the X-Box game console two years ago.
