"Ask not what your genre can do for you, but what you can do for your favorite genre.Let's put high-end PC gaming and Space Sims back on the map!
Star Citizen brings the visceral action of piloting interstellar craft through combat and exploration to a new generation of gamers at a level of fidelity never before seen. At its core Star Citizen is a destination, not a one-off story. It's a complete universe where any number of adventures can take place, allowing players to decide their own game experience. Pick up jobs as a smuggler, pirate, merchant, bounty hunter, or enlist as a pilot, protecting the borders from outside threats. I've always wanted to create one cohesive universe that encompasses everything that made Wing Commander and Privateer / Freelancer special. A huge sandbox with a complex and deep lore allowing players to explore or play in whatever capacity they wish."
Wow. And Wow again. If anyone was gaming in the early 90s on PC, Wing Commander and Privateer were awesome series. Well Chris Roberts is back to save PC gaming and Space Sims. This will be an open world space combat/exploration game like privateer, but has a game within the game within the military sector called squadron 42 that plays like a wing commander game and is a full campaign size, not a mini game. And it's on the Cry3 engine. I put down an immediate 60 bucks, what say you? This is what Bioware hoped The Old Republic would be and they failed miserably. Roberts will deliver. 100 detailed ship parts that factor into flying. Can't wait.
