Chris Robert’s Cloud Imperium Games released another video related to the developer’s space simulator Star Citizen.

The video is roughly split in two parts, with the first being a rather interesting dive into the game’s QA process (with a bonus look on the Rover planetary vehicle), while the second features the mobiGlas, which is absically a multi-purpose wearable hud that plays the role of a more immersive in-game UI.

You can use the mobiGlas to check your vitals, analyze the environment to make sure it’s survivable without a suit, change your equipment, check the status of your quests or your finances, and much more.

On top of the video, that you can enjoy below, the crowdfunding campaign for the game has reached and surpassed just another milestone, and is now over 156 million dollars. To be more precise, the total tally is $156,129,887, pledged by 1,856,880 backers.

Incidentally, for the sake of full disclosure, the author of this article is one of those backers.

Currently, Cloud Imperium Games is preparing to launch alpha 3.0 between September 4th, and September 8th. That’ll give players a taste of the persistent universe, also allowing them to land on planets and explore them.
