New Star Citizen Video Shows the Origin 890 Jump As Crowdfunding Passes 226 Million Dollars

With development on Star Citizen progressing through its alpha phases, bigger ships are starting to get close to become flyable.

With its 123 meters from bow to stern, the Origin 890 Jump is one of those, and it’s also a luxury ship that comes with a pool and all of the amenities one may want to have to make the “I’m filthy rich” statement in space.

In the new video released today, the development team showcases the ship’s interior, as it’s getting prepped up for its flyable release in Alpha 3.6, which should come around June.

We also get to see the work being done to allow players to hit and disable individual thrusters and engines to immobilize an enemy ship, a glimpse of Microtech’s landing zone, another of the Banu Defender, and more.

In other Star Citizen news, we also hear that the game’s crowdfunding campaign has reached and passed another milestone, flying past 226 million dollars and now comfortably sitting on $226,238,364. The number of registered accounts is, at the moment of this writing, 2,328,292.
