We aren’t asking Star Citizen’s backers to stand by waiting for the game to be done. Our backers have been right there with us through the pre-alpha process, playing early versions of the Hangar Module, Arena Commander, Star Marine, the persistent universe and more.

Each patch helps us test and perfect another key aspect of Star Citizen. FPS, dogfighting and multicrew ships, as well as the initial planetside/social experience are all playable and the Squadron 42 single player adventure is coming soon.

Citizenship
We’re Here Because of You

Star Citizen’s backers made the game possible, and they will always be our first priority! Our job isn’t just to build the game you want, it’s to share the process with you. You’re letting us build our dream, and we’re more eager than anyone to share it with you.

Open Development

You’re going to hear exactly what we’re working on, when we’re working on it. From detailed monthly reports from each studio to question and answer sessions with the development team, the Star Citizen team is dedicated to remaining in touch with the community.

Ideas Wanted

You aren’t just listening to us, we’re listening to you. Ideas from Star Citizen’s backers have already changed the way the game will work… and there’s more to come! From balancing ship stats to testing new builds, Star Citizen’s backers have a voice in every step of the project.

Help Build the World

From the start of the project, Star Citizen has been about building a community… and now that community is becoming a universe! We’re giving players ownership of the Star Citizen world now so they’ll be invested in the game world when the persistent universe launches!

Player Organizations

Why wait to recruit your squadron, or form up with your guild? The Roberts Space Industries website has a fully-featured Organizations system that has already been used to create over 1,000 Star Citizen political, military and business alliances that will transfer over into Star Citizen’s living world. Find your friends and start planning for your galactic domination today!

Friends Today

We’ve created the tools to host your own Star Citizen organization without needing to design your own web site or host your own forums. Star Citizen lets you provide the artwork to generate an attractive organization home and then gives you the tools to recruit, promote and organize your own team!

Wingmen Tomorrow!

The groups you create today will carry over directly into the persistent universe. Star Citizen’s backers are already doing incredible things. By joining today, you’re shaping the galaxy’s political landscape.

Be Part of Something Bigger

Fly your Organization’s colors now and be part of the Star Citizen universe! Backers can begin forming alliances and rivalries today which will have a major impact on the Star Citizen persistent universe. Important organizations will appear in the galactapedia and ongoing game lore.

Leave Your Mark on the Galaxy

Organizations, like individual players, will have a profound impact on the future of Star Citizen’s world. Your team of friends gathered today could someday become the galaxy’s hottest spacecraft company, or you may go down in history as the squadron that eliminated a top fugitive!

Release approach

We aren’t asking Star Citizen’s backers to stand by waiting for the game to be done. Our backers have been right there with us through the pre-alpha process, playing early versions of the Hangar Module, Arena Commander, Star Marine, the persistent universe and more.

Watch it Grow

Star Citizen will become a fully featured game in front of your eyes! From the initial Hangar launch in 2013, which let players view their spacecraft and interact with their home base, to the flight model testbed Arena Commander, Star Citizen’s backers have a unique opportunity to watch (and impact!) the game as it comes together in module releases and with community-tested patches.

Reap the Reward

In addition to access to test the early stages of the game, Star Citizen’s early backers receive special flair, in-game currency and more rewards. It’s our way of showing appreciation for your key role in making Star Citizen happen.

Your Opinion Matters

We aren’t just sharing our progress, we’re asking our backers for their input! Star Citizen’s backers have already helped perfect the flight model and their input has lead to significant design updates to ships and systems. By releasing modules early, we’re letting you take part in the game’s pre-alpha test cycle at an earlier point than ever before.
