Today Star Citizen developer Cloud Imperium Games released a brand new video about upcoming ships in development.
The newly-announced exploration ship MISC Odyssey takes the lion’s share of the video, showing off a first look at the interior, including the vast hangar that will finally give pilots a chance to park fighters that aren’t ant-sized (or fish-sized, I guess. I’m looking at you Carrack).
On top of that, we also take a look at the Hull A, the Hull C, the Drake Vulture, the RSI Scorpius, and the first look at the whitebox for the Banu Merchantman.
To top it all off, we get a glimpse of the ship-mounted tractor beams and the refinery update for the Starfarer.
You can check it all out below.
In other Star Citizen news, the crowdfunding total has just passed $418 million and it’s currently sitting on $418,652,521.
This is quite significant because, with nearly 79 million in crowdfunding since January 1, the game has now surpassed the previous record from 2020 with a month to spare, marking another year of growth for the seemingly unstoppable crowdfunding campaign.
The recently-concluded Interactive Aerospace Expo contributed approximately $19.5 million, also beating the same event last year by a quite wide margin.
Lastly, the number of registered accounts has just passed 3.4 million, and it’s at 3,413,955 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.
If you’re wondering whether the game is actually fun to play, this is a good place to start. 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.
