Star Citizen Gets New Constellation Aquila Trailer; Crowdfunding Passes 158 Million Dollars
Star Citizen shows the new Constellation Aquila, and made another million in pledges in three days.
Cloud Imperium Games released another trailer of its upcoming space simulator Star Citizen.
The trailer features a variant of the popular RSI Constellation multi-purpose starship, the exploration-focused Aquila.
The Aquila comes with a redesigned cockpit for maximum visibility, and an Ursa rover in the hangar, to cruise around the planets you discover.
On top of the new trailer, we also learn that the game has passed another crowdfunding milestone. At the moment of this writing, it’s well past $158,000,000. To be more specific, we’re looking at $158,007,547 pledged by 1,866,979 backers.
Incidentally, it had passed 157 million on August 25th more or less at this hour, meaning that the game effectively made another million in three days. Most probably, this is thanks to the impressive demo showcased at Gamescom. Among other things, it revealed the upcoming alpha 3.0 and the first battle among playable capital ships.
You can check the new video out below. If you want to see more, you enjoy several more trailers of recent ships, another video on planetary outposts, one on the MobiGlas, two more gameplay videos, one on shops and kiosks, footage on derelict ships, more on explorable planets, and one on ship persistence.
For the sake of full disclosure, keep in mind that the author of this post backed the game on Kickstarter during the original campaign.
