Star Citizen reaches $61 million and unlocks the boarding ship

Star Citizen

New ships are keeping the money rolling in as Star Citizen raised another million in three days.

If someone had told you they could raise a million in a few days from crowd funding you probably wouldn’t believe them. Cloud Imperium are keeping the cash flowing into Star Citizen as they hit the $61 million funding goal, and looking at their funding chart, it appears that in three days they’ve raised a further $400,000+ which has pushed them to the latest goal.

What do you get at the $61 million mark? The boarding ship Espera Prowler.

  • 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.)

Offering new ships and allowing fans to vote for the ones they want to see added appears to be doing the trick.
