We can hardly believe it – we’ve already hit the $14 million level! The grace period has ended and the limited ships available during this promotion are back in the hangar. Anyone who pledges from this point forward will receive a different insurance package than the one offered to Original and Veteran backers. We can’t thank you enough for all of the support you have given Star Citizen in recent months. Rest assured, we will be back at work Monday creating the space game of our—and your—dreams. Fans are making Star Citizen the first-ever crowdfunded AAA game and we’re very excited about the fact that we get to share the process with you. Together, we are exploring new territory in game development.
If you haven’t pledged yet, there are still plenty of packages available and there will be plenty of great promotions in the future. Please continue to consider Star Citizen; we believe it’s going to be an incredibly worthwhile game, one worthy of the incredible fanbase that has already formed for it. We knew that space sims and PC games both needed a return to their former glory… but we had no idea so many people would support is in this endeavor. Stay tuned, because the best is yet to come!
With the $14 million unlock you’ve added Hibernation Mode to the game, allowing explorers to shut down their spacecraft in deep space and resume the game safely later. We will also be putting together a professional-quality “Behind the Scenes of Star Citizen” documentary and adding the much-discussed fourth land out option on Earth (city TBA.)
As previously revealed, the $15 million goal is next:
- Additional flyable ship class: escort carrier
- The Upgrade Handbook: an extra 42-page manual that walks players through the process of customizing and overclocking their ship systems! (PDF free to all backers before $15 million)
And now we’re excited to reveal the $16 million additions:
- Arena mode: The next generation of Wing Commander’s TrainSim allows pilots to test out their combat skills against friends or strangers in a simulation. Gain valuable combat experience without the downside of losing your ship in the game universe! Place bets on competitions across the galaxy.
- A laser pistol for every pledger before this point. Keep your ship safe from boarders with a pistol by your side.
Thank you for the amazing support. YOU are making Star Citizen happen!
