StarCitizenIt was just a few days ago that Roberts Space Industries announced that it had secured $29 million of your money in crowd-funding to make Star Citizen, breaking its own cash-collecting records. That total has now exceeded its latest milestone, by raising more than $33 million.

As with all new Star Citizen milestones, this new milestone means the game is getting something new and shiny – in this case, it’s the Anvil Carrack

“The Anvil Carrack has been the vanguard of every UEE exploration effort in recent years. Featuring reinforced fuel tanks for long-duration flight, a highly advanced jump drive array and a dedicated computer core room that allows it to put the maximum processing power into jump charting operations. Originally a military exclusive, the Carrack is now available for civilian use as a pathfinder spacecraft. Features on-board accommodations to allow for truly self-sufficient flight, including crew medical and repair facilities, and a mapping-oriented sensor suite capable of always charting a route home!”

The last stretch goal at $32 million unlocked a new ship in the way of the Aegis Surveyor, an "industrial-quality salvage ship" that’s all abut deep-space exploration and salvage. While it’s not loaded with cannons, it’s got tons of storage space and reinforced hulls.

the most recent goal of real import though was the $29 Million mark, which unlocked a ton of single player content, which Roberts Space Industries says will include enhanced mission design and more resources and animations to enhance fidelity, to help make Star Citizen a “true spiritual successor to Wing Commander.”

Check it out.

If you’re a fan of Roberts’ games, there’s a heck of a lot to be excited about – it combines the best of Wing commander and Freelancer. by the time you’ve finished reading this, they’re probably well on their way to $34 million.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
