Today, at the end of the CitizenCon celebrations, Star Citizen‘s developer Cloud Imperium Games showcased a brand new trailer of the game’s single-player portion Squadron 42. 

The video is absolutely epic, showing advanced cinematography, giant starships, space battles, and providing a look at the game’s star-studded cast in action.

One thing is for sure: Squadron 42 seems to be doing a lot better at employing Mark Hamill than the recent installments of a certain movie series (I’m looking at you, Star Wars).

You can check out the video below. While Squadron 42 still doesn’t have a release date, a roadmap will come in December, so we’re likely to know when we’ll be able to play this then.

Incidentally, Star Citizen is a crowdfunded project and at the moment of this writing, and the CitizenCon reveals bumped it to $195,007,319 in pledges from 2,102,502 registered users.

For the sake of full disclosure, keep in mind that the author of this article is one of the backers of the game since the times of the original Kickstarter campaign.
