Latest Headlines for Star Citizen

  • Capturing a Visceral Feel & FPS Module Work

    Chris Robert's Letter from the Chairman is an interesting one where he discusses the work being done with performance capture. His hope is that Star Citizen will feel more visceral as a result of using one to three camera's on each actor's face, and up to fifty cameras capturing the movement of each player's body. According to Roberts, this amount of intensive performance capture will allow more emotion, nuance and subtlety than in any game he's ever created before.

  • The Future Persistent Universe

    It's no secret that studios tend to use writers as a sort of advertising. It's nothing malicious, just a subtle focus on the new stuff they would like to get promoted. The relationship is certainly symbiotic because where they get to manage the publicity of their games to some degree, we get to see things a little earlier than most, which allows us to produce articles while the information is relevant.

  • Change is in the Air

    My feelings on the subject of Star Citizen are shrouded in more shades of grey than the murkiest Seattle skyline. I'm a Golden Ticket holder, Imperator, High Admiral, and very nearly the first writer to report on the game as being a major movement in the gaming community. If I wasn't the first to point out how it'd shape the future of the industry, I was dang close.

  • A Great Deal of Hope for the Newly Minted FPS Module

    Since the idea was introduced as a stretch goal, the inclusion of a first person shooter component in Star Citizen has been a somewhat debated topic. There have been legitimate questions about how feasible it would be to add that sort of thing in an already ambitious project, and many have concerns that the attempt might come off feeling cheap or slapped in. We've all seen those games where something was just forced in for the extra bullet on the box.

  • State of the Game: Can Star Citizen Live Up to Expectations?

    Earlier this month, it was announced that Chris Roberts' Star Citizen had broken a Guinness World Record for the top crowdfunding project of all time with $55 million being raised to help develop the game. While $55 million is far from the biggest game budget of all time, it's still an impressive amount of money to be raised by little more than word-of-mouth and a Kickstarter campaign.

  • Controversy and Crysis?

    Star Citizen has had its share of detractors from the start, though you wouldn't know it from the way their continuing crowdfunding campaign has been progressing. While there have been questions about their open development model and potential feature-creep, fans have continued to be staunchly in Chris Roberts' corner from the start. There is one issue debated even among the fans, however. That would be their use of Crytek's CryENGINE 3 for the backbone of the developing game.
