Today Cloud Imperium Games released new videos about its growing space simulator Star Citizen.
The first video is a teaser of the Intergalactic Aerospace Expo event that is coming soon, while the second showcases the creation of a space station in the upcoming Pyro System with principal environment artist Josh Van Zuylen.
The Intergalactic Aerospace Expo will kick off on November 19 and will continue until December 1.
It’ll feature a free fly event featuring over 100 vehicles that everyone will be able to try out without needing to pledge for the game, announcements of new ships, and more goodies.
It’ll also include an in-game expo space showcasing the game’s ships, vehicles, and equipment, returning to Microtech for the second year in a row.
As usual, various brands of ships will be flyable on a daily rotation, and we’re going to get humorous videos with Jax McCleary (who Jeremy Clarkson fans may find familiar) and his Stig-like assistant.
Below you can check out the videos and the full calendar.
In other Star Citizen news, the crowdfunding total has just passed $395 million and it’s currently sitting on $395,131,743.
The number of registered accounts is now over 3.3 million, and it’s at 3,310,753 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 mentioned above.
If you’re wondering whether the game is actually fun to play, this is a good place to start. The online persistent universe has now reached version alpha 3.14, while 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.
