During CitizenCon 2015 in Manchester, Chris Roberts and Cloud Imperium Games detailed the upcoming alpha 2.0 of Star Citizen, that will move the game to the next stage, giving players the first taste of the game’s persistent universe.
It will include 38 playable missions, and will let you explore a space map measuring 1 million km by 1 million km by 200,000 km, the flat area will be 1 trillion square km, and the total volume will be 200 quadrillion cubic km.
Below you can see the list of features shown during the presentation.
Before the release of 2.0, we’ll actually get 1.3, that will come “very soon,” and include the following features:
A video showcasing Alpha 2.0 and its feature was also aired during the presentation, and you better sit down, because it’s absolutely breathtaking.
Additionally, the web-based version of the Ark Starmap has just been released, and it’s already playable here.
Personally, I find it quite funny that there are sites out there alleging that Cloud Imperium games is working only on trailers, while playable features have been regularly released to backers regularly for the longest time.
Funny notes of color aside, during the presentation a trailer recapping the progress of the game since its announced was also showcased, alongside a presentation of the star map and of the new referral program. You can check them all out below.
