The crowd-funded intergalactic juggernaut that is Star Citizen has smashed through more than $48 million worth of funding, with Cloud Imperium head honcho Chris Roberts announcing a new $50 million stretch goal.

The new stretch goal promises to add full blown alien languages to Star Citizen, with real-world linguistics experts being brought in to create distinct dialects for three of the biggest alien races present in the game…

Do you speak Banu? We will work with real-world linguists to create distinctive and realistic alien languages for Star Citizen’s three biggest alien races, the Vanduul, the Xi’An and the Banu,” said Roberts in a blog post. “No universal translators, no garbled animal noises: Star Citizen’s aliens will be speaking their own authentic languages!

To celebrate cruising past the $48 million mark Cloud Imperium debuted a new bomber, dubbed the Retaliator. There’s only concept art to go on just yet, but they are working on an in-game advert for the ship to be revealed at a later date.

Have you got involved in this absolutely massive crowd-funding campaign? Can Star Citizen ever live up to its hype or scope? Let us know!

The amount of money they've raised clearly shows the gaming community's desire for a quality follow up to Freelancer.
I hope this turns out well. :)

I hate it when games are hyped like this, because itll never live up to the endless expectations of its audience. I wish the game would not publish anymore "Hypenews", because they are only putting the already high bar even higher. I just hope the game wont flop. Ive seen too many overhyped games just fall over and die, even if they were still enjoyable.

Alien. Languages. It's like they are just catching random interns at RSI and screaming at them to come up with new directions to throw money at.
