Today, Star Citizen developer Cloud Imperium Games released a brand new trailer.
The video walks us through the many features included in the recently-released alpha 3.0 version, that is currently available to backers. This includes many goodies that are completely new to this update and quite a few that were available before.
There’s a lot to show, as the trailer is a full eight minutes in length. Funnily, the first part follows the adventures… of a box. You’ll see what I mean.
All in all, there is plenty of combat, both on foot and among ships, and the gorgeous visuals the game has gotten us used to.
You can check it out below. If you want to see and learn more, you can enjoy the spectacular vertical slice of the single-player campaign, and a version of the same footage with commentary from the developers, another video featuring the Coil, a teaser starring Mark Hamill. You can also read more about the soundtrack, and the plans for the next major update to the persistent universe, that will be alpha 3.1 in March.
For the sake of full disclosure, please keep in mind that the author of this post is one of the backers of Star Citizen‘s crowdfunding campaign.
