Star Citizen Gets New Video About Massive Bengal Carrier & More as Crowdfunding Passes $370 Million

Cloud Imperium Games has released another video of the growing space simulator Star Citizen, focusing on the Bengal carrier and more.

Cloud Imperium Games has released another video of the growing space simulator Star Citizen.

This time around the star of the show is the massive Bengal carrier that was the star of the Invictus Launch week event.

We hear how the team turned what was basically an older prop into a ship capable of flying and fighting in the universe without feeling out of place compared to newer ships.

We also take a look at more of the work being done for the Orison landing zone on Crusader, including the spiffy shuttle that will ferry us around.

Another segment showcases work being done on the interior of the Anvil Redeemer, and on the whitebox phase of the Crusader Ares.

You can watch it below.

In other Star Citizen news, the crowdfunding total has just passed $370 million and it’s currently sitting on almost 371, more precisely on $370,891,249.

This means that the crowdfunding campaign has gathered about $11 million in support from the fans for the development of the game during the Invictus Launch Week event.

The number of registered accounts recently passed 3.1 million, and it’s at 3,143,292 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 just 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.
