Star Citizen developer Cloud Imperium Games released new videos focusing on the growing space simulator.
The first video is rather impressive, and shows the first iteration of ship-to-ship and ship-to-station docking that will come in the upcoming alpha version 3.13.
We also see experimentation for the creation of planetary caves you can actually fly through, more props created for planetary homesteads, the UI for the new reputation system, and more.
The second video features a roundtable discussion among developers on the recently-introduced capital ship battles.
In other Star Citizen news, the crowdfunding total passed $345 million, and it’s currently at $345,562,961
The number of registered accounts is also approaching three million, and it’s currently at 2,965,680.
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.
We recently learned that 2020 was a record year for Star Citizen’s extremely 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 few 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.
