Star Citizen Gets New Video on RSI Ships; Makes Another $650,000 in a Day
As Star Citizen's anniversary sale continues to be successful among backers, a new video showcases the Constellation Phoenix and more.
Today Cloud Imperium Games released another video of its upcoming space simulator Star Citizen.
This time around, the video focuses on the oldest ship manufacturer in the Star Citizen universe, Roberts Space Industries. The first ship showcased is the luxury cruiser Constellation Phoenix.
The second ship is the RSI Orion, which is currently the biggest mining ship in the game. As a matter of fact, the ship has been scaled up to almost double its original size.
Finally, we move away from shops and into ground vehicles with the Ursa Rover. It’s quite interesting to see how its design was influenced by size restrictions, since it has to fit in the cargo bay of a Constellation.
In the meanwhile, the anniversary sale continues, and the game’s crowd-funding tally has reached $168,807,597 at the moment of this writing. This means that it has made over $650,000 in twenty four hours. Registered players are now at 1,923,590.
It’s worth mentioning that all the ship sales are entirely optional, giving backers ways to support development. All of the ships will be available to purchase with in-game credits.
