Star Citizen continues to smash goal after goal, quicker this week than most previous. Last night Star Citizen smashed through its $33 million goal to unlock the Anvil Carrack spacecraft.
Anvil Carrack – The Anvil Carrack has been the vanguard of every UEE exploration effort in recent years. Featuring reinforced fuel tanks for long-duration flight, a highly advanced jump drive array and a dedicated computer core room that allows it to put the maximum processing power into jump charting operations. Originally a military exclusive, the Carrack is now available for civilian use as a pathfinder spacecraft. Features on-board accommodations to allow for truly self-sufficient flight, including crew medical and repair facilities, and a mapping-oriented sensor suite capable of always charting a route home!
As of today, Star Citizen sits at 20% of its $34 million goal, one that will probably be broken before the end of the Thanksgiving holiday if the past week is any indication.
