Today Cloud Imperium Games released a new video of its upcoming space simulator Star Citizen, which continues to grow.
The video features a rather interesting look at new tools that the developers will be able to create rivers in Star Citizen’s planets.
On top of that, we also get to hear about the Space Combat Summit, which is basically an inter-discipline meeting between developers of different teams that work together to draw the path to make combat even more fun with future development.
There’s even a fun little surprise at the end, even if there are no promises about its actual implementation in the game.
You can watch it below.
In other Star Citizen news, the crowdfunding total just passed $342 million, and it’s currently at $342,469,194
The number of registered accounts is also approaching three million, and it’s currently at 2,947,188.
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 and more.
That being said, we recently learned that 2020 was a record year for Star Citizen’s successful crowdfunding campaign, shattering the previous record from 2019.
More insight about the game’s successful year and what can be expected going forward was shared by Cloud Imperium Games CEO Chris Roberts himself a couple of weeks ago.
If you want to learn even more, we recently saw 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.
If you’re wondering whether the game is actually fun to play, this is a good place to start.
The game’s alpha is currently playable on PC, and a star-studded single-player campaign titled Squadron 42 is in development.
For the sake of full disclosure, do keep in mind that the author of this article has been a Star Citizen backer since the original Kickstarter campaign several years ago.
