Star Citizen passes yet another milestone

I just like using Space Ball references

In space, no one can hear you cha-ching. We’ve spoken plenty about Star Citizen before. Every dollar pledged, is another dollar that pushes it over the infinite crowd-funded barrier. In fact, the last time that I wrote about the game, it had explored the $40 million plus quadrant, with no end in sight. And right now that ship is setting sail at ludicrous speed, with over $63 million in the bank.

So what tier does $63 million unlock in Star Citizen? What digital fluff do backers get now? The MISC Reliant, if I’m reading the website correctly. Synopsis below:

MISC Reliant – With the success of the Freelancer “Built for Life” campaign, MISC has moved to join RSI and Consolidated in the single-seat introductory starship arena. Their silver bullet? A starter ship with more than one seat… and their ace in the hole: Xi’An technology. Where the Aurora is a pure utilitarian platform and the Mustang is a delicate, maneuverable personal transport, the Reliant is MISC’s most Xi’An tech-heavy ship to date. Featuring impossibly sleek lines, two separate crew seats and a vertical fuselage design, the Reliant’s streamlined cockpits glow with some of the finest xenotechnology available!

It took just two weeks for the game to raise more cash from the $61 million mark, which added the Espera Prowler once that was done. The next milestone for the game is set at $64 million, and will reward players with…pets. Yep, actual pets from your run of the mill cat who really doesn’t want to be in a cockpit when you’re doing barrel rolls to more exotic options. That’s a milestone that is already 50% finished.

Which is absolutely crazy at this point. It’ll be interesting to see if this game manages to support the weight of all its accomplishments when it finally arrives.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
