Virtual Progamming today announced that X2: The Threat is now available for download. ” Its a dangerous universe, but someone has to kick its butt! From the freezing hell of the prison world of Artur to the pirate filled space-lanes of the deep black, X2: The Threat will take you as far as noble, (or craven), ambition will carry you. Command a freighter and trade your way to wealth and power, or become an admiral of your own fleet of mile-long destroyers and sweep your enemies before you. Maybe both? The choice is yours!” X2: The Threat is priced at US$39.95.
