Today Star Citizen developer Cloud Imperium Games released a new video about the ever-growing space simulator.
The video focuses initially on the newly-revealed Esperia Talon ship, which is a fighter restored from an alien design that belonged to the Tevarin alien race.
It comes in two variants. The standard version comes with big guns (for a light fighter), while the “Shrike” version is equipped with lots of missiles.
The ship will be flyable in December and can be purchased starting at $90, with the usual caveat that you’ll be able to simply grind credits to buy it in-game.
The second part of the video brings to the table an interesting look at the motion and performance capture done for the game’s single-player version, Squadron 42.
To be more precise, it’s sitting on $309,337,574 at the moment of this writing., with over $500,000 made in the past day or so.
The number of registered accounts is now well over 2.7 million (currently 2,752,682).
As usual, it’s known that not all of them are paying players. The number includes free accounts created for a variety of reasons, including free fly events.
For the sake of full disclosure, the author of this article has been a Star Citizen backer since the original Kickstarter campaign several years ago, so you should keep that in mind while reading.
