Arena Commander (Dogfighting Module) released Star Citizen News
Posted by w0dk4 on 2014/6/6 12:25:58 (8488 reads)

After many delays, finally the dogfighting module called "Arena Commander" for Star Citizen has been released.

The multiplayer part of the module will be rolled out based on your citizen number, so if you backed Star Citizen early, the higher are your chances to get in.

Also interesting is the Freelancer-style mouse aiming, where weapons follow your mouse cursor.
If you turn "Coupling" off (Caps Lock button), you will get something similar to "engine kill" in Freelancer, though it is more of a "lock velocity vector" right now.

I think the majority here follows the development of Star Citizen very closely, but I just wanted to highlight the latest developments so nobody misses out.

The crowdfunding campaign has reached more than 23 Million US Dollars - which means that the game is fully funded by the community.

Star Citizen funded, breaking crowdfunding record! Star Citizen News
Posted by w0dk4 on 2012/11/30 13:10:18 (10090 reads)

Star Citizen, the crowdfunding space-sim project by Chris Roberts (creator of Freelancer and Wing Commander), has been successfully funded.

Also, the project established a new crowdfunding record for video game projects with nearly 7 Million Dollars!

The team about Roberts has been very active in communicating with the community during the campaign, giving information about the game mechanics as well as showing off - surely a factor for breaking the crowdfunding record. But they also promised in their pledge statement to keep the updates coming.

So head over to the official website to keep in touch (...)

Chris Roberts announces new Space Sim "Star Citizen" Star Citizen News

Check out the official website including crowd-funding here:

One of the most interesting piece of information regarding Freelancer:

A central server system for the persistent universe will be required to assure security, prevent cheating and other bad behavior. We also plan to provide a version that allows private servers similar to Freelancer to be maintained and run by the pilot communities. These would support single and multiplayer space combat battles where teams could hone their skills without having to use the public servers.

The countdown is over and Chris Roberts' new website for his new game is online. Read the following statement by Chris Roberts and get excited:


If you’ve made it here, you probably know who I am. Maybe you have heard of Wing Commander and its sequels, or perhaps Strike Commander, Privateer or Freelancer.

If not, you’re still welcome!

I grew up making video games. I sold my first game at the age of 13 and created Wing Commander when I was 21. But 10 years ago, at the height of my career I took a break. Not because I stopped loving or playing games but because I had become frustrated with the limits of the technology at the time to realize my vision.

I decided to pursue my desire to create detailed worlds and tell sophisticated stories in film.

I always said the moment I became interested in making games again was when (...)
