Star Citizen – Alpha 2.0 offiziell auf dem Live-Server gestartet

Bei Star Citizen gab es gestern grünes Licht, um jedem Spieler, welcher Star Citizen bisher vorbestellt hat, Zugang auf das Public Test Universe (PTU) zu geben.

Chris Roberts und das Cloud Imperium Games Team (CIG) präsentieren nun der Community einen weiteren Schritt in der Entwicklung ihres Spiels, bei welchem die einzelnen Spielelemente (Module) erstmals zusammengeführt werden.

Als weitere Informationen entnehmen wir der Pressemeldung von CIG, dass es mehr als eine Million registrierte „Citizens“ auf der Webseite gibt. Ferner gibt es bis dato mehr als 32.000 Organisationen (Zusammenschluss von Spielern, vergleichbar von Gilden in World of Warcraft), von welcher die größte mehr als 11.000 Spieler umfasst.

Ebenso kann man erwähnen, dass die 100 Millionen Dollar Grenze bald von dem Crowdfunding Projekt überschritten werden sollte.

Aktueller Stand: $ 99,926,037 – Star Citizens: 1,083,023

“We are forever grateful for our backers and fans,” said Roberts. “They been there from the beginning when we launched Star Citizen’s funding campaign three years ago. And they’ve helped create the most passionate and loyal community in our industry. They are helping us every step along the way in creating the best damn space sim ever.”
