Star Citizen alpha slots are all gone. Funding soars in past 24 hours

Star Citizen

Yesterday we alerted you to the fact that the Star Citizen alpha slots were quickly running out and it appears gamers have jumped into action and snapped up the remaining slots.

Overnight the slots have sold out which means that only the $5 module passes are available for anyone who was wanting to get involved in the testing. Since we reported the news yesterday, a further $209.000 has been raised by Cloud Imperium as gamers dashed to grab up the last few thousand places on the alpha test. If you didn’t get on there’s a lesson to be learned. Don’t wait until the last minute.

There’s no doubt that Star Citizen is really picking up pace and PC gamers who have been watching the development but may not have been entirely convinced by the game are taking notice. The reveal of the Dogfighting Module undoubtedly helped push up the backer numbers. With the Dogfighting Module hopefully just a couple of weeks away from release now it’s an exciting time for space sim fans.

If you’re going to be playing then IncGamers has an Organisation set up and we would of course welcome gamers to join in the fun.

Thanks to site visitor Nick for alerting us to the alpha slots running out.

      The best game in PC history starts now. Normally we would wait another year for a beta and many gamers would be begging for BETA ACCESS! There would be posts on the games forum from little boys who couldn’t join the Army and instead stayed at home with Mum. They cyber cry about cyber things they didn’t get.

      Well now those adultkids will be pleased to know there are modules that can be downloaded for this game already. We can play! This game and it’s developers simply rock and your too late for a pass. Well not really they can be purchased however it is limited to specific testing i.e. Beta Passes will be sold separate. Passes to each individual module (there are many) will be sold individually and so they should. People will cry about all that too “But I didn’t know about the game 6 months back!”.

      How the world continues to go round but now it does so in Chris Roberts game.

      I’m wondering if my bounty hunter level of funding on Kickstarter would get me access to the alpha or just the beta, anyone know? Thanks.
