Star Citizen boss Chris Roberts took to the game’s main blog to announce a new milestone for the crowdfunded game – one million citizens.
To be clear – in order to become a “citizen” of the game, you simply have to register for their official forums, or back the game via a financial donation. It’s not clear if the one million citizen milestone includes both or simply backers, however, as our fans have pointed out – simply registering for the forums gives you a citizen number above one million – leading us to believe this number includes both.
Alongside the new milestone was the news that every backer who has pledged towards the game will receive access to the game – there are no longer tiers or extra costs, you’ll get all of it now.
The game has reached over $90 million in crowdfunding money, and is seeming to only be adding more content to the game via backer-chosen stretch goals. Featured above, a new video was posted with the recently confirmed Gary Oldman, who is playing the role of Admiral Earnest Bishop.
“It’s amazing to have a community and team that believe so fervently in what is being built… Say it loud: PC games are back, space combat games are back… we are making Star Citizen possible!,” said Roberts in the update.
Editor’s Note: The article originally stated the game had reached one million supporters in crowdfunding, this is untrue as the update cites “citizens,” which are simply people registered to the game’s official forums. This has been since amended for accuracy.
