Star Citizen – Become a Space Pilot in this New Game Concept
Star Citizen is a space flight simulation game that will let its users have a taste of parallel universe! Enter the virtual reality, pilot a spaceship and built you very own living avatar! It is an upcoming simulator video game developed for Microsoft Windows and Linux. The game belongs to the genre of space trading and combat simulation that allows its users to experience space flight. Star Citizen can be played by either one player or multiple players. It is supported by Oculus Rift and is constructed on an altered version of CryEngine 3 game engine. Due to Oculus Rift support, the video game feels absolutely immersive and offers a perfect experience of an alternate world.
Star Citizen is created by Chris Roberts who is also known for Wing Commander, one of the famous space combat simulation video games, and other games such as Wing Commander: Privateer, Starlancer and Freelancer. Being managed by Roberts’ Cloud Imperium Games Corporation, Star Citizen is currently under development.
The development of Star Citizen began in 2011 on a modified version of CryEngine using a modular design. The fist module was titled Hangar Module and was released on 29th August 2013. Hangar Module let the players explore the virtual ships from a 1st person point of view within CryEngine 3, which will be later updated to CryEngine 4. The second module released on 4th June 2014 and was called Arena Commander. The second phase allowed users to test their ship combat portions against other opponents. Arena Commander has a precise ship flight model with several factors like mass, thruster positioning and ship damage to simulate space flight. Other modules are scheduled to be released soon. Star Citizen will support AMD’s Mantle graphics API.
Star Citizen will take place in a persistent world which means that the world will continue to exist and the changes made will remain intact even when the users have logged out of the game. The game will feature persistent ships and stations, lawless planets and armaments. There won’t be separate game servers and players will be connected to each other through an instance match making mechanic. To play the awesome, you only have to buy the initial version from their website.
