Star Citizen Crosses $16 Million in Crowdfunding

Star Citizen Art 1

Chris Roberts’ epic space sim Star Citizen is basically printing money for both him and his team.

How much money, in fact? Well, they just crossed $16 million dollars in crowd-funding, unlocking the following features:

  • Arena mode: The next generation of Wing Commander’s TrainSim allows pilots to test out their combat skills against friends or strangers in a simulation. Gain valuable combat experience without the downside of losing your ship in the game universe! Place bets on competitions across the galaxy.
  • Every pledger who backs before $16 million will receive a laser pistol. Keep your ship safe from boarders with a pistol by your side.

Now, if Star Citizen crosses 17 million, the features unlocked are as follows:

  • Every pledger who backs before $17 million will receive a ship upgrade package containing an engine modifier.
  • Star Citizen will feature an additional flyable ship class, the battlecruiser.
