Today Star Citizen developer Cloud Imperium Games released a brand new video dedicated to the game, showcasing interesting upcoming features.
First of all, we hear about the Friends system that is being developed and will let you track your contacts across all the platforms dedicated to the game.
On top of that, we take another look at prison gameplay, including a very spiffy glimpse of the prison facility that will be added with the upcoming alpha 3.9.
In other Star Citizen news, the crowdfunding total is now over $267 million.
To be more precise, it’s at $267,000,226 at the moment of this writing, with 2,520,626 registered accounts.
As usual, it’s known that not all of them are paying players. The number includes free accounts created for a variety of reasons.
