Star Citizen developer Cloud Imperium Games resumed its Inside star citizen video series featuring the first release of 2023 showing off some pretty cool features coming your way.

The video focuses on what’s new coming with Alpha 3.19, which will be the update after the next one (3.18 is coming soon and is expected to be the biggest since 3.0 in 2017).

First up, we take a look at the crashed ruins that will be scattered across planets in both the Stanton system and the upcoming Pyro system, giving players more landmarks to visit and explore.

The second part of the video is perhaps even more impressive, showing the redesign of Lorville, the first “landing zone” created for the game being radically changed. Interestingly, it will arrive earlier than originally planned, which is rare for star citizen.

Even more interesting is the fact that it paves the way for the implementation of interiors (which we’ll hear more about in a couple of weeks) and includes plenty of trenches and tunnels to fly through, which is a radical departure from the original design. full of barriers that tended to disrupt or even kill pilots who weren’t extremely careful and conservative with how close they approached buildings.

You can take a look at the video below.


Meanwhile, the crowdfunding cavalcade driving the development of Star Citizen continues unimpeded, and the game has received a a whopping $546 million ($546,539,356 to be precise) from backers.

The number of registered users now stands at 4,384,428, though not all of them pay as many register accounts to gain access to the popular free fly events that give the chance to try the game without committing any money. According to the latest information from creative director Chris Roberts himself in October 2022, 1.7 million players are paying customers.

star citizen It’s just off its best year in terms of crowdfunding, with $113 million committed in 2022, an increase of 31% over 2021. The account has risen steadily year-over-year since 2018.

Full disclosure: The author of this post has endorsed star citizen all the way back when their crowdfunding first launched in September 2012 (day one, in fact). If you think you’ve waited a long time for the release of this game, chances are you’ve waited more extensive.
