Yesterday, we reported that Cloud Imperium Games’ Star Citizen had passed 166 million dollars, well… scratch that. The game’s crowdfunding total is now at over 167 million dollars. More precisely, it’s at $167,134,692 provided by 1,920,416 registered users.
This means that the Star Citizen raised over a million dollars in a day, thanks to the anniversary sales, offering many ships at a discounted price. It’s pretty much your space Black Friday.
As usual, it’s worth mentioning that these ship purchases are entirely optional, and backers are buying ships for the sake of supporting the game’s development. All of them will be available in the game, and players will be able to earn them via normal gameplay.
On top of the crowdfunding update, we get a new video focusing on ground vehicles and alien ones, providing updates on the massive Banu Merchantman and Tumbril Cyclone humvee.
You can check out the video below. If you want to see more, you can check out more videos on the Aegis Dynamics Hammerhead, one on the Aegis Hawk, another showing the impressive procedural cities technology, one on quantum travel, one on improvements that are being made on the game’s already gorgeous graphics.
Before you watch the video, do keep in mind, for the sake of full disclosure, that the author of his article backed Star Citzien back when it hit Kickstarter a few years ago.
