UPDATE: Thankyou to everyone for pointing out that the game has, in fact, actually passed $31 million. Guess that’s what we get for waiting 24 hours to post this article! Damn you, Star Citizen.
Another week, another outrageous milestone for the apparently unstoppable Star Citizen, which has now raked in over $29 million in crowdfunding from excited space-fans across the space-world.
This new million-dollar slice will be used to bump up the single player ‘Squadron 42′ campaign, to make it “a true spiritual successor to Wing Commander”.
“Squadron 42 can go above and beyond anything you’ve seen before,” writes Roberts. “From opening with an epic battle instead of a training patrol to missions that seamlessly combine boarding and space combat, we aim to put you right into the action! Additional funding will let the team realize this, with enhanced mission design and more resources and animations to enhance fidelity.”
Cloud Imperium have even put together a little video for us all to celebrate. Take a look:
