Star Citizen, a video game where you can surf the cosmic highways in a digital ship that costs the same as an actual real-world motorcycle, hasn’t had the best of weekends lately.
With plenty of ambition backed up by an equal amount of cash to help finance, the Chris Robert’s universe of space exploration has plenty going for it, depending on who you ask. One thing that it didn’t have, that I completely glossed over however?
Voice acting apparently. And Star Citizen is shooting for the stars when it comes to hiring talent.
Straight out of CitizenCon, comes news that Gary “EVERYONE” Oldman will headline a cast of voices as Admiral Bishop in Star Citizen. He’ll be joined by Gillian Anderson, Mark Strong, Sophie Wu, Mark Hamill, Andy Serkis and more in the final game.
Oldman is the only confirmed voice with a role so far, while everyone else merely has a “REDACTED” under their name.
That is some proper solid talent there, talent which most likely wasn’t cheap to hire. Mark Hamill’s Joker laugh rates alone cost enough to finance a war between two small countries according to an unreliable source who may actually be me (totally is).
Hell, I didn’t even know that Star Citizen would have enough of a story mode to justify hiring such actors.

BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE! New screenshots for the single-player campaign Squadron 42 mode have also surfaced, via PCGamesN. They look rather lovely they do. Here’s a gallery of them to peruse while I figure out how to properly wake up after a rAge weekend that left me with a Rocomama ring-sting from a chilli cheese bomb burger:
Star Citizen will be out eventually. Probably.
