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.

August 28, 2017

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.

RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
