Chris Roberts’ Cloud Imperium Games released a new video on Star Citizen, giving an update on the development of the game.
The video showcases several elements, including shops and shop keeper NPCs. improvements done to quest givers, the recently-announced Nox Space Bike, and animations.
The center piece is an extensive segment on visual and particle effects, including ship engine trails, smoke, explosions, atmospheric entry and exit vfx and more. They look really great.
Incidentally, the game’s crowd funding cavalcade continues. The tally has recently passed 153 million dollars, and is currently sitting at $153,216,155 from 1,833,643 backers. That’s quite impressive considering that it passed 151 million dollars only a month ago.
A second video released recently, alongside a complement of screenshots, showcases the Nox Space Bike, a beautiful open-canopy vehicle initially designed by the Xi’an, and adapted for humans.
You can check both videos and the screenshots below. For the sake of full disclosure, the author of this article is part of those 1,833,643 backers mentioned above.
