Star Citizen Blasts Through the $25 Million Mark

Posted Mon, Oct 28, 2013 by Martuk

As it will come as a surprise to no one ever, Star Citizen shattered yet another stretch goal over the weekend, sailing past the $25 million mark to unlock the enhanced alpha stretch goal. As of this writing, Star Citizen is already 23% of the way to its $26 million stretch goal, which will unlock enhanced capital ships.

Enhanced Capital Ship Systems – In addition to the command and control systems we’ve already outlined, we’re going to expand capital ship functions! Lead a damage control team to fight fires and repair key systems during battle, control internal bulkheads to slow boarders and man a number of consoles, like navigation and engineering, that will make commanding a capital ship feel even more immersive.

Following the stretch goal milestone, Chris Roberts penned his latest Letter from the Chairman to thank fans and reveal the $27 million stretch goal.

Banu Merchantman Unlocked – Banu traders are renowed for their merchant prowess, traveling the spacelanes and trading with everyone from humans to the Vanduul! Their sturdy, dedicated trading ships are prized beyond all other transports, sometimes passing from generation to generation of Banu. At $23 million we dedicated additional resources to making Xi’An spacecraft a unique experience. At $27 million, we will expand that same thinking to the Banu! Starting with the merchant ship, the design team will expand Banu technology to offer players a completely different way of experiencing their universe.
