Star Citizen hits $50 million, releases Constellation trailer


Every time there’s an update on the mountain of money that Star Citizen has gleaned for its development, I like to call up its original Kickstarter page and laugh in disbelief at its paltry $500,000.00 goal. I mean honestly… how adorable. They’ve now officially got 100 times more than they initially requested, which means that through the process of obviously, the game is going to be the best thing ever made. Obviously.

In case you haven’t been keeping up with Chris Robert’s glorious return to the space simulator genre, the original Star Citizen Kickstarter has been subsidised to the extreme via the game’s official website. On said website, players can buy a copy of the game, which comes with a standard ship. Alternatively you can fork out wads of money to buy even cooler ships, which has obviously resulted in the quaint little $500,000 starting goal bloating itself into $51,075,243.


Naturally, because the game has hit a bajillion of its stretch goals, Star Citizen is getting a number of new features, the latest of which is alien languages. There’s also a first-person shooter mode (a teaser trailer of which is below) and a new Constellation ship advert.

The Constellation is a multiplayer ship, which means that you and a bunch of your buddies can pilot the thing and fly around the galaxy together like one big family. It’ll be like Lost in Space! Hopefully we’ll get a really annoying robot AI that shrieks “Danger, Will Robinson!” That’d be great. But not really.

You can check out the Constellation in action below. It’s another one of those fantastic trailers that’s made out to be like a car advertisement.

    They’re adding even more things? The longer this goes on, the less faith I have that it’ll a) get finished and/or b) actually be any good.

    • Miklós Szecsei

      Yeah I’ve got to admit, I wish they’d finalise a core game and ship it, and then add the trillions of stretch goal features via updates.

      • ToshZA

        That would be a good idea, yeah. Focus produces much better results than “all the things”.

    This game I fear is going to end in a lot of tears, the money being invested is huge the promises seem to be limitless. This game is going to be in development for years.

  • BinaryMind

    If they do ever finish this, it. will. be . EVERYTHING!

  • Wesley Fick

    I have no doubt that this will be successful. Chris Roberts is doing this thing exactly right.

    • Alex Rowley

      But so far its just screaming peter molyneux kind of promises, this game could be one of the best ever made if all of it comes out as planned and it just fills me with doubt lol.
      Still I am hoping it comes out as promised because it looks amazing.

    LOL up till 0:40 is a SPORE spoof :D
