Guys, we have to say that this game is really tickling our fancy. It’s been a long time since we’ve had a decent space sim that can meet the needs of some many people. We’ve been looking for a game to break out the joysticks for and this is it!
Star Citizen is an RPG style space simulator that allows for on and offline gameplay as well as single and multiplayer. Not only is their a persistent server hosted by Cloud Imperium (the developers) but you can host your own server with all the mods and ships you could want. Mods will also be allowed for submission and approval by CI and possibly added to the persistent server as well.
Realism is the focus of this game. The amount of detail is explained to be 10 times that of current AAA titles. For example, current character models in titles today are around 10,000 polygons whereas the character models in SC are around 100,000 which allows for much more customized characters. And don’t think the detail ends there. As detailed as the characters are, the massive star ships are just as detailed with thousands of visibly moving parts and 7 million polygons.
Realism is in the physics as well. You can see all the thrusters on your ship working together to add yaw, pitch and roll to your fighter. Realistic damage is a thing. Should a thruster be damaged, it will affect your maneuverability and you’ll have to adapted to stay alive.
There’s so much more we want to talk about so we will be making a video in the next few weeks describing why you should be interested in this game.
