People Are Throwing Ridiculous Amounts of Money Towards Star Citizen as It Breaks $170 Million in Funding

New Star Citizen Video Released

I guess it’s safe to say the economy isn’t that bad after all. Today, we learned Star Citizen has just passed another major milestone in crowdfunding. It’s now over 170 million dollars! That is no joke and truly an unprecedented amount. To be more precise, the total bounty is at $170,266,901, with 1,926,355 registered users.

Star Citizen Passes 150 Million Dollar Crowdfunding Milestone

The recent spike can be attributed to the ongoing anniversary sale, which brought in over five million dollars in a week. As usual, this kind of sale is intended to support development, and the game’s supporters surely appear to be eager to provide it. All ships will be available for purchase in-game with credits that can be acquired by playing.

Also, a new video has been released showing the rework done to the Cutlass Black, which is basically the ship of choice for criminals and pirates. The ship will be flyable in the upcoming alpha 3.0, and it looks really aggressive. You can check out the video below.

From the mind of Chris Roberts, acclaimed creator of Wing Commander and Freelancer, comes Star Citizen. The 100% crowd funded game aims to create a living, breathing science fiction universe with unparalleled immersion and everyone is invited to follow every step of development. More than a space combat sim, more than a first-person shooter and more than an MMO: Star Citizen is the First Person Universe that will allow for unlimited gameplay. Recently, Cloud Imperium Games released a new video of its upcoming space simulator Star Citizen.



    I play it once a year using the $45 dollar starter package.

        I’m playin 3.0 right now homie, hopefully they will get 3.0 working by 2019.

        • Aranphor

          And full of shit as well. I play it and 3.0 is on track to be released around Christmas. Now back to your scheduled lie from dumbass. 🙂

          • HNTR KLLR

            A release by christmas 2017? Are you joking?

          • Donald Trump’s Trumpet

            how are you in the PTU if all you have is a starter package and only play once a year. you should be well down the peaking order. something tells me you are a silly troll.

          • HNTR KLLR

            I got the subscription, but i’m going to cancel eventually and refund the account.

            But anyways, I think any 3.0 release before christmas is crazy-talk, unless it’s the totally broken version we see now.

    According to troll and haters, 2017 would be the worst Anniversary of CIG history… it is the best 🙂
    What a surprise.

    3.0 is currently going through heavy test process done by thousands of dedicated backers. Came from 8 paleyrs per isntance to 50, memory leak are under control and the most annoying bug (cpu spike from time to time) is now linked to physical grids collision by Developers. Going to be fixed in the next coming days.

    3.0 is amazing… nothing less even in its still imperfect sate.
