Roberts Space Industries have revealed that Star Citizen‘s total crowdfunding drive has now passed beyond $17 million.
To celebrate, backers will receive a special ship upgrade pack, for everybody who has pledged prior to this point. “An engine modifier will be added to your account shortly and in the near future you should be able to see it in your hangar,” writes the RSI page.
An additional class of ship has also been unlocked in the final game: the “massive battlecruiser”.
The stretch goals for $19 million, the next milestone, include space stations across the galaxy which players can fight for and control, a free “Jane’s Fighting Ships”-style manual for all pledgers, and monthly episodes of the RSI Museum.
