Star Citizen developer Cloud Imperium Games released a couple of new videos focusing on combat.
The first video is the weekly episode of Around the Verse featuring weapon balancing both on foot and in space, but we also get to see other goodies, including the first iteration of character customization.
The second video is the new episode of Reverse the Verse, in which Tech Designers John Crewe and Andy Nicholson talk all things ship balance and space combat experience.
Both videos are certainly interesting, as they shed light on some of the deepest and trickiest aspects of game development.
In other Star Citizen news, the crowdfunding total has passed another milestone and is now over 178 million dollars. To be more precise, it’s sitting at $178,194,460 at the moment of this writing.
