Star Citizen’s New Damage Model is Probably Going to Melt Your PC

Roberts Space Industries have shown off the new ship damage model for Star Citizen, their crazy ambitious space simulator.

Featured above, the new trailer shows off both laser damage (burns, minor damages) as well as major, major ship destruction – you can literally see pieces getting broken off as they fly everywhere.

Things get really amazing and yet painful (if you can imagine how expensive these ships cost in game) when you see a ship be reduced to nothing but a cockpit, or in the case of the final ship, get the brunt force of a gatling gun.

Star Citizen has raised almost $75 million dollars in crowdfunding, and if you’re considering backing the game, you should head on over to the official website.

    One day, computer technology will catch up to the aspirations of Star Citizen and the full game will at last be released.

    Unfortunately, by that time we’ll all be in actual space ships flying around the galaxy trading and having dog fights. Then they’ll have to start over with Average Citizens, a game about playing a 9-to-5 blue collar joe jobber in 2015 Earth.
