Today Cloud Imperium Games released a brand new video of its growing space simulator Star Citizen.
The video focuses on two different topics. The first is a deep dive into the RSI Perseus gunship, providing more information on its capabilities and interior spaces.
The second part is something even more exciting, the tractor beam attachment for the multitool.
Not only you’ll be able to manipulate objects with it (with different effects depending on gravity), but also to use it as a sort of grappling hook to propel yourself around in zero gravity. It looks like a lot of fun, I kid you not.
You can check it out below.
In other Star Citizen news, the crowdfunding total is currently at
$335,275,828, having passed $335 million. This means that the game made roughly $16 million during the 13 days of the Intergalactic Aerospace Expo. That’s quite impressive.
The number of registered accounts has also recently passed 2.9 million and it’s currently at 2,908,487.
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 that just ended.
If you want to learn more, we recently got a sizable update on the progress of the single-player campaign Squadron 42 and a really lovely cinematic trailer. On top of that, we recently heard that a new studio has been opened to create new systems and content for Star Citizen.
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.
