Star Citizen

When Chris Roberts started his Star Citizen crowd funding journey you have to wonder if ever expected PC gamers to jump on it like they have.

Today Cloud Imperium Games reached a massive milestone by raising $15 million since the campaign launched. Now that this figure has been reached, a new stretch goal has been unlocked as another flyable ship class, the escort carrier. All backers will now also receive 42-page Upgrade Handbook manual which explains how to customise and overclock ship systems.

Now that $15 million has been raised what’s next? The Star Citizen team have their eyes firmly fixed on a $16 million goal which will grant the following:

  • Arena mode: Arena mode is a simulation within the game, although it is not the simulator itself. Players will have access to an actual training simulator in their hangars, which will be used for the dogfight alpha. The Arena is something bigger. It is a galaxy-wide event, where players come to specific locations, pay their entry fees, and jump into space battles to prove who is the best dogfighter of all. Think of it as a combination of a sports tournament and modern-day gaming contests. Each winner will receive credits for the victory, and the best of the best will meet in higher and higher rounds until a grand champion is crowned.
  • A laser pistol for every pledger before this point. Keep your ship safe from boarders with a pistol by your side.

Those goals were previously revealed, but looking further ahead at $17 million, there’s new rewards which will include…

  • Ship upgrade package for every pledger containing an engine modifier.
  • Additional flyable ship class: battlecruiser

Will it reach $20 million? We starting to think that this could go all the way.

    If it hits $20M+ I’d expect half a space shuttle delivered to my house with a prebuilt Star Citizen game in it and all the controls and lights to go with it too :D.
