Today Cloud Imperium Games released another new video of the growing space simulator Star Citizen.
The video is split in two part, the first being dedicated to the upcoming capacitor gameplay hat will add more weight to the choices made in combat, prompting players to allocate energy resources where they might create an advantage.
The second part focuses on operator positions, that let crew members work a certain aspect of aa multi-crew ship while the pilot focuses on driving. We see specifically the missile operator role, that lets a co-pilot take care of aiming and shooting the missiles.
