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

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.

Medium is more of a possibillty, but requirements could change right before release. These current req's are crazy high! What's your resolution? That could mean the difference between medium and high settings.

With that current setup expect high settings for better fps. These requirements are crazy high, but MIGHT drop. As of right now, these are official, but they MIGHT drop. I'm looking forward to seeing how this runs on my rig. Should be interesting! :D


By the way, won't know fps until game comes out. It might be locked at 30 fps!

I am speaking like a man in stupid country without a proper job to have money for newer GPU's, CPU's and stuff.
But yes, i am humble.
I just hope i will be able to play FC4 at least at low, and i think i will if they make dx9 available.

Spec's might drop before the game releases. Also, you should be able to play on ultra, just maybe not at the fps you want. But won't know that until the game is out.

Hello guys, I am planning to upgrade my GPU very soon and I am wondering which brand should I go for. I was thinking to get a 780 (no Ti) or a r9 290 OC edition, which one do you guys think that I should get?(they cost the same)

Salivating over here on that 290…..
Actually the 290 is a bit cheaper(at least here in the USA) and offers about the same performance as the GTX 780. Just keep in mind that the AMD series runs HOT. So make sure to get a non-reference card to keep it cool. But if it's the same price for you, I would say go with the GTX 780. Runs cooler and offers the same performance.

Thanks for the reply. I think I will go with the Nvidia GPUs but I will wait a bit to see how the GTX 880 will be and then decide between their GPU models. I also read that Directx 12 will be almost like AMD Mantle.

Ultra doesn't sound too far off from what you can expect. I doubt these current requirements will stay this high closer to launch date, but who knows. Also, can't tell fps until game is out. Nice rig by the way, get it verified! :)
