Star Citizen developer Cloud Imperium held their CitizenCon live stream last weekend, in a bid to not only raise awareness of their upcoming space-epic, but to also bring current financial backers up to speed with how the games development is progressing, as well as showing people what they’re planning on doing with the vast sums of money they’ve been receiving.
The game has already broken a world record for the most successful crowd funding campaign, but it continues to raise the bar as it has recently hit $58 million; a figure that is likely out of date now given the rapid success of their funding attempts. The most promising aspect of Star Citizen is that the developers have pledged to invest every penny into this games development and they’ve been forever adding new stretch goals, features, modes and more to meet the growing demands of their budget; and they intend to keep developing new content long after the games official release.
The latest stretch goal is community voted ships, judging by the current voting it looks like a repair ship will be the next addition to the game. All of the Arena Commander ships have also been unlocked this week, great for those (like myself) who have early access and a great opportunity to test out the games combat systems.
Thank you IncGamers for providing us with this information.
