Star Citizen raises $16 million – New $18 million stretch goal revealed

Star Citizen raises $16 million – New $18 million stretch goal revealed

Star Citizen

We all got so wrapped up in the hangar reveal over the weekend that we forgot to post the news that RSI’s has now raised a whopping $16 million.

With more money in the development pot, the $18 million stretch goal was confirmed which includes an “Exclusive star system for pre-launch backers”. This is a pretty cool addition for early backers as only they will have access to this additional content location through their on-board computers.

The $16 million goal unlocked the Arena mode in which pilots can test their skills against buddies or strangers. Think of it as a testing area where there’s no risk of ship loss and RSI also mention the ability to place bets on competitions.  There’s a also a laser pistol to help stop pesky intruders boarding your ship.

After watching the game progress since it was announced, I’ll admit I personally took the plunge in backing the game, it was just too tempting not to get a slice of the action and get in early when the hangar and dogfighting modules are released in the coming weeks and months ahead.
