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.

According to the req. up top, AMD is N/A for Ultra. That 9590 is nothing compared to that Intel.

Yes it'll be always online. Your rig will hold up well w/ whats out now. CPU will need a upgrade as time goes on. That 12GB of RAM should be good at least up until launch time.
Also, I'd say hold off on a 390, that 970 is pretty damn good, and I'm pretty sure even the devs don't know what can do ultra yet… optimize!

Yes, although I've heard AMD cards have had some issues during pre alpha, I don't know about now since it's in Alpha.

dont worry so much mate, I can play it on my modest rig on my res at medium 40-50 fps at its current state. And its just in alpha. This game scales really well.

This game looks so epic. Btw, if you would like to play this on lower than 1080p, my setup is enough for 40 fps low settings on my res, at least for now. I think I'll have to get a new card when they release new content tho :)

That a little odd. I'd assume you'd get more considering my rig gets 70-100fps in hanger and 30-60fps in Arena Comm. Either way, your right about needing an upgrade for the future content. We both will :/

The 970 is way better than my card. It justifies the FPS difference

Hard to say. With Arena Comm, You should be good on a high-max level around 60fps. With the Social module coming within the next month, expect fps drops

this game is very demanding. It needs a pretty awesome desktop pc to run on ultra, so you are right, one cant expect to run this game on lower end laptops. Maybe on those with 980M SLI, i7 16gb ram, but they cost a kidney.

Yes, you can play what's out now (Hangar + Arena Commander) in Max Settings, though the PC Requirements will be rising as more modules come and the game develops.
