Today Cloud Imperium Games released a new video of its upcoming space simulator Star Citizen, looking forward to Alpha 3.5 and beyond.
The video showcases a new mission giver that will appear in the upcoming version (which is scheduled to release this month). Her name is Twitch Pacheco, and she is a former operative turned criminal. She is also really badass.
We also get to see new weapons, and the first look at something that will appear in the game at some unspecified point down the line, procedural planetary caves which will bring us deep underground and add a further level of verticality to planets and moons.
On the side of not exactly awesome news, we learn that the Banu Defender has been delayed from Alpha 3.5 and alpha 3.6. That being said, considering the new flight model, the new character creator, a whole new planet and its moons, the upcoming release still has plenty to look forward to and then some.
If you want to see more of Star Citizen, you can also check out more videos about Alpha 3.5 and the new flight model, another clip showing off more of the upcoming update, the Argo SRV search and rescue ship, another recent video showing more of ArcCorp, and one showcasing the female characters that will also come in 3.5.
Just yesterday, the developer also released a batch of tutorials which are perfect to see what the game is all about.
For the sake of full disclosure, do keep in mind that the author of this article backed the game during its first Kickstarer campaign.
