Chris Roberts ’ambitious space simulator can now be tested by those who have so far been wary of getting into community funding.
I’ve been making it for nine years, they’ve spent a good quarter of a billion dollars on it, but I still don’t see when Chris Roberts ’business, to whom I will be forever grateful, will arrive. Of course, a three-episode stand-alone project featuring world stars called Squadron 42 has grown out of Star Citizen in the meantime, but for the time being, we are indebted to the developers. In light of all this, it’s understandable that many are skeptical of Roberts ’promises, but Invictus Launch Week, which kicks off today, offers a great opportunity just for the climbers.
Thanks to this event, between May 22 and June 1, we can get a taste of what this dazzlingly space simulator can offer its supporters without spending even a forint on it. From a spaceship for a bunch, we can choose which one to take on a circle.
For the time being, Star Citizen finds itself in an alpha state, not so long ago as an upgrade to version 3.9, which is scheduled to change to August in August. If you’re wondering how the game stands now, be sure to give it a try.
