Squadron 42. Yet updates keep getting added and the game is nowhere nearer to release, and now fans seem to be fed up of it. In a recent update to Star Citizen’s roadmap, many players have voiced concerns over cancelled content that was planned in previous roadmaps, only to be removed in the next update.
Crowdfunding for Star Citizen has surpassed $250 million. Originally announced via a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign back in 2012, where it raised just over $2.1 million, Star Citizen has subsequently gone on to raise an additional quarter of a billion dollars through additional crowdfunding on its official website.
Cloud Imperium Games has revealed the next major content update for Star Citizen is hitting the servers this very weekend. Star Citizen Alpha 3.5 adds a hefty bunch of new features, including playable female characters for the first time (that took six years, well done lads), and a significantly expanded character customisation utility.
Raytracing is the hottest topic around right now, although Star Citizen developer Cloud Imperium Games won’t be taken in by the hype.
Cloud Imperium Games have just added Hurston to Star Citizen, the game’s first fully explorable planet. The celebrate the event, CIG is offering a Free Fly even in Star Citizen next week.
The annual CitizenCon is in full swing and CIG fans are in place to celebrate all things Star Citizen. Does anybody us chuckle at the irony of Star Citizen’s fan event being called CitizenCon? No, just me? I’ll get my coat.
The enigmatic Star Citizen is still a difficult thing for us mere mortals to wrap our puny minds around, but those who’ve dropped thousands of dollars into this crowdfunded space venture are already busy exploring the depths of its universe.
Star Citizen has a new Legatus Pack that bundles together nearly every ship in the game, totaling 117 in all. The price? A mere $27,000.
Cloud Imperium Games don’t do anything by halves so we shouldn’t be surprised that their latest video feature on the single-player Squadron 42 portion of Star Citizen clocks in at over half an hour. Star Citizen’s undoubtedly one of those games where you get out as much as you put in, just be prepared to put a whole lot.
After countless delays, Star Citizen’s major 3.0 update launched around a month ago, and since then Cloud Imperium Games has been frantically trying to fix bugs, tweak systems and make the adjustments necessary for a solid gameplay experience.
The weird (and potentially wonderful, we just don’t know yet????) world of Star Citizen got even stranger this week with the introduction of yet another way to pledge your support. They’re now selling land-based tanks to backers, ranging in price from $95 for the Tumbril Nova Tank LTI Warbond, through to $725 for the Deluxe Ground Vehicle Pack LTI VIP. If you’re buying that last one then I can only reason you’ve gone absolutely insane, particularly since Crytek went public with its lawsuit against Cloud Imperium Games.
