Star Citizen reaches $30 million in funding

Star Citizen

It’s taken just three days for Star Citizen to raise another $1m, it’s so fast I had to double-take the update.

With the new goals focusing in adding news ships Cloud Imperium are encouraging fans to dig deep and part with cash to bring more ships to the game. It’s a bit weird if you think about it, we’re dipping in for ships which nobody has seen but the concept sounds great. In fact nobody has actually flown a ship yet properly. Gamers are a weird bunch sometimes.

For reaching the $30 million mark a new ship has been unlocked.

Origin 890 JUMP – The rumors are true: Origin Jumpworks has a larger ship in the works! The Origin 890 JUMP is an interstellar super-yacht with exquisite styling and an array of high quality upgrade options. Travel the stars in style with multiple decks, high visibility windows and a small boat bay. Whether you’re outfitting it to explore new worlds or to take a pleasure cruise through Terra, the 890 JUMP is the epitome of luxury, class and refinement!

Looking ahead to the $32 million goal Cloud Imperium are wanting to put together the Aegis Surveyer:’

Aegis Surveyor – The Surveyor, from noted military contractor Aegis, is an industrial-quality salvage ship. Equipped with a reinforced cargo bay, a long-range jump drive and launch pods for unmanned drones, the Surveyor is an ideal ship for taking advantage of deep space wrecks. Tractor beams, floodlights, scanner options and docking ports round out the tool chest on this capable, utilitarian spacecraft.

Once again backers are being asked to vote for more ship additions on the update page. There’s also some Gladiator artwork as a reward for this latest round of funding which shows turrent customisation.
