Earlier this year the Star Citizen announced funding for the game had passed $51 million thanks to the sale of new Star Citizen spacecraft that can now be bought and used within the space game once it finally launches.
Star Citizen originally launched as a Kickstarter campaign back in 2012 by legendary game designer Chris Roberts, best known for creating the popular Wing Commander series. To provide gamers with a rich universe focused on epic space adventure, trading and dogfighting in first person.
“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. Chris Roberts has 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. That universe is Star Citizen.”
