Star Citizen hits the $60 million in funding – More ships coming

In just over a week Star Citizen has raised another $1 million. Kerrrching!

After the FPS reveal at PAX the fans have once again dug deep and pushed the Star Citizen funding up to $60 million. With that news comes two additional goals which are as follows:

At $61 million, you’ll unlock the boarding ship…

  • Espera Prowler – Named after the UPE military designation, the Prowler is a modernized version of the infamous Tevarin boarding craft from the First Tevarin War. With the recent discovery of the lost Tevarin planet in Kabal System, Espera’s engineers were given unmitigated access to examine the preserved ships found in several of the caches, before meticulously recreating the design choices. The Prowler’s effectiveness as a rapid personnel deployment vehicle was mainly due to its silence. The boarding was constructed using a variety of techniques to minimize its signatures and get close to unsuspecting vessels before quickly deploying their boarders via EVA. With the updated Prowler model, you will find the perfect fusion of two culture: the elegance and effectiveness of the Tevarin war machine combined with the reliability of modern UEE technology. (While lacking some of the upgrades of the modern version, vintage Tevarin-built Prowlers restored for modern spaceflight are prized by owners lucky enough to locate them.)

And at $62 million, the passenger liner!

  • Genesis-class Starliner – The Genesis is yet another landmark in Crusader Industries’ proud history of transport designs. This ship utilizes award-winning manufacturing techniques and the highest quality parts to create one thing; a next-generation passenger ship at a price that won’t break your budget. Crusader Industries’ proprietary NeoG engine technology offers some of the most efficient flight for a ship of its size. The Genesis line has been cited in Whitley’s as “one of the most reliable and safe public transport ships on the market.” Genesis Starliners are available in a number of stock configurations, focusing on everything from passenger capacity to freight to overall comfort. The UEE military operates multiple Genesis conversions for support roles, including SWACS and starflight test operations.

At $60 million the Aegis Bulldog-class Twin-Engine Deep Space Fighter was unlocked in case you were wondering what the team will now have to add to the game.

Voting for the next ship us underway on the Star Citizen site but I was really hoping we’d see the “Chris Roberts Fart in a Bottle Reward” as discussed in this week’s podcast. Damn you Cloud Imperium.
