The Intergalactic Aerospace Expo 2050 is continuing on Star Citizen and today it’s Aegis Dynamics’ turn to take over the exhibition space in New Babbage.
To celebrate, the developers at Cloud Imperium Games have released a new trailer featuring the popular starship brand starring the usual Jeremy Clarkson parody Jax McCleary.
We also get to take a look at a more extensive video in which the developers explain what they’re doing on the AI front, in order to give us smarter and more challenging enemies.
Do keep in mind that the game will be completely free to try until December 2, so if you’re on the fence or you’re wondering what’s the big deal, you can check it out for yourself and make your own mind.

In other Star Citizen news, the crowdfunding total is currently at $319,410,291 at the moment of this writing, having passed $319 million today.
This means that it made nearly $1.5 million in two days. This is normal during events like the IAE 2050, as sales of rare capital-class ships and limited starships encourage backers to open their wallets.
The number of registered accounts is also well over 2.8 million (currently at 2,873,264).
As usual, you should keep in mind that 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 like the one going on right now.
If you want to learn more, we recently got a sizable update on the progress of the single-player campaign Squadron 42.
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.
