Independent Game
Star Citizen is created by an independent developer. An indie game is created without the financial support of a game publisher. These chaps need our support! They help PC gaming become diverse and brilliant. Buy their games!
Co-op Game
Star Citizen has a co-op mode so you can play with your mates on the same side, usually through the main story mode
Online Only
Star Citizen can not be played without constant online access. This could be due to security reasons or because of the nature of the gameplay
MultiPlayer
Star Citizen is designed to be played with other people or it is heavily bias towards that type of gameplay
Online Activation
Star Citizen can not be played without first activating the game online. Once activated the game may be playable offline. If our Online Only button is also highlighted then you will need constant online access
Flightstick
Star Citizen can be played with a flightstick or joystick
Back of the Box
Star Citizen brings the visceral action of piloting interstellar craft through combat and exploration to a new generation of gamers at a level of fidelity never before seen. At its core Star Citizen is a destination, not a one-off story. It's a complete universe where any number of adventures can take place, allowing players to decide their own game experience. Pick up jobs as a smuggler, pirate, merchant, bounty hunter, or enlist as a pilot, protecting the borders from outside threats. I've always wanted to create one cohesive universe that encompasses everything that made Wing Commander and Privateer / Freelancer special. A huge sandbox with a complex and deep lore allowing players to explore or play in whatever capacity they wish.

Ok, so requirements are MASSIVELY different for AMD vs Intel? For CPU, my i7-4770 is a tad better than the FX-9590, and significantly worse than the i7-5960X.


And on the other end, the AMD R9-390 is quite a bit more powerful than the GTX 980…


So overall, quite confusing…

The game need a top intel and a top amd cpu to run, right now the best cpu from AMD is FX-9590 and it will have no problem to run the game with mantle or directx 12.The r9 390 has not been released yet so you don't know how it perfoms.

The devs are trying to make the best game ever. The way they describe the is "We are not making a game. We are making a universe!" So, really as long as people keep giving them money. They'll keep making the game better!

To sum it all up. They are trying to make the game that most, if not all, of us dreamed of and for that to happen it takes really good hardware.

I know someone with a 4770k @ 4.7Ghz GTX980 SLi with a 1440p and he can barely run the game at 40 fps on ultra.

maybe it is because the 4GB VRAM and not the performance of the card itself that is making him running only 40 fps ultra…

The "can I run it" app has lead me to this site. I am debating an upgrade to play this even though I can play now at 1080 on med, I'm just not sure which way to go; dump an OP GPU into this setup or start over on a new build entirely.
