From the mind of Chris Roberts, acclaimed creator of Wing Commander and Freelancer, comes Star Citizen. The 100% crowd funded game aims to create a living, breathing science fiction universe with unparalleled immersion and everyone is invited to follow every step of development. More than a space combat sim, more than a first-person shooter and more than an MMO: Star Citizen is the First Person Universe that will allow for unlimited gameplay. Recently, Cloud Imperium Games released a new video of its upcoming space simulator Star Citizen.
This new extensive video is dedicated to a brand new ship, the Anvil Aerospace Hawk. The Hawk is the perfect ship for bounty hunters, so the video also gives some attention to that activity that will be implemented among players in game, with mechanics like taking criminals alive and bringing them in to be imprisoned, alongside the ability for the criminals themselves to serve their time in some way, or to attempt a jailbreak.
On top of the hawk, we get updates on more Anvil ships, including the Terrapin, the Carrack, and the Hurricane. As usual for new ships, the Anvil Hawk is currently on sale, starting at $80. Sure that seems pricey BUT keep in mind that ship purchases are simply for the purpose of supporting development, and are completely optional. All ships will be available for in-game credits once the game launches.
On top of this, the release to all backers of alpha 3.0 is now one step closer, with multiple waves of users having been invited to test it on the public testing universe.
It remains truly is amazing to see how far the game has come along. It looks absolutely stunning and is turning into the game No Man’s Sky should have been.
