Today Cloud Imperium Games released another brand new video of its upcoming space sim Star Citizen.

The video, after providing a look at some rather hectic engagement between players in the most recent version of the alpha of the game, moves on to show the upcoming AI patrol and improvement to turrets.

After that, we get a glimpse of some of the environments being created for the upcoming alpha 3.3 (which will release in September), including the new procedural tools used to build them.

In other Star Citizen news, crowdfunding has now passed 190 million dollars, and it’s sitting on $190,138,736, provided by 2,058,870 registered users.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
