Back when we told you that LGP is porting Sacred Gold to Linux, we had also mentioned that the port of Egosoft's X3: Reunion would be completed shortly. Beta 9 was expected to be the release master, and this afternoon the private beta testers for Linux Game Publishing were greeted by this release. However, X3: Reunion Beta 9 is not going gold.

Michael Simms, the CEO of Linux Game Publishing, has stated that this ninth beta release is now considered their first release candidate. They have cleared out all of the X3-related bugs in their bug tracking system, but their last issue to work out involves the game's performance or there the lack of on Linux. Presently the game is running a little slower than they would like it to, but they are confident it will be worked out shortly -- and will certainly be cleared up before it goes gold.

X3: Reunion was originally scheduled for release on August 1, 2007, but it now looks like the game should arrive around August 1, 2008. The game is available for purchase through the LGP website.

In related news, the first beta for Sacred Gold hasn't yet started and Bandits: Phoenix Rising hasn't seen a new private beta release in months.
