Word is on the virtual streets of a new FAQ released for Chris Roberts triumphant return from the gaming wilderness: the space sim known as Star Citizen. The document details not only the preliminary PC specs you’ll need for the game, but also how they feel about modding (very strongly encouraged) and how microtransactions will work.
As the game is based on CryEngine 3, you’ll need something with a bit of heft to get it running. Minimum specs are listed as a dual core CPU, GTX 460, and at least 4GB of system memory. Recommended specs include an i7 2500, 2600, or 2700, and a GTX 670 or better.
The official word on modding is that “Players will be given full control of their game! When operating private servers, players will be able and encouraged to mod the game. It doesn’t stop there, though: we hope to institute a ‘mod approval’ process that will allow the best of the best player created ships and other additions to be integrated into the central persistent world as well.”
On the subject of microtransactions, the FAQ has this to say: “To play Star Citizen you need only to buy the initial game. There will never be a monthly charge for usage. Some in-game items may be available as microtransactions, but we will NEVER sell anything that can’t be acquired through honest (and fun!) gameplay.”
