Today Cloud Imperium Games released a new trailer and a bunch of images of its growing space sim Star Citizen.
The images are all about the Xi’an-built cargo ship Gatac Ralien which was revealed yesterday, showcasing both its interior and exterior.
The Railen is already available for sale starting at $200. Yet, you should always keep in mind that all ships will be purchasable in game with credits earned by playing, so you should consider a purchase only if your primary goal is to support the game’s continued development.
The trailer introduces Alien Week, which starts today. It’s the annual celebration of the first contact between humanity and the Banu, which is the first alien race ever encountered in the universe of Star Citizen.
You can check all the assets out below.
In other Star Citizen news, the crowdfunding total has passed $372 million yesterday and it’s currently sitting on $372,463,902
The number of registered accounts recently passed 3.1 million, and it’s at 3,148,533 at the moment of this writing.
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 recently ended.
We recently learned that a new studio has been opened to create new systems and content for Star Citizen, while Firesprite will work on the Battlefield-like mode “Theaters of War.”
If you’re wondering whether the game is actually fun to play, this is a good place to start.
The game’s recently-released alpha 3.13 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.
