Star Citizen developer shows off its star-studded Squadron 42 campaign

Star Citizen CitizenCon – New Features Detailed CitizenCon 2018: Star Citizen 3.3 update launches to backers, features technical milestone
Charles Bowen | 12 October, 2018, 11:54

Cloud Imperium Games has rolled out a new trailer for the single player portion of its ambitious and totally-coming-out sci-fi title Star Citizen.

Star Citizen is a massively multiplayer online experience that empowers players to build a life in the stars while engaging in first-person shooter and vehicle battles, exploring massive celestial bodies, and discovering adventure in an ever-expanding sandbox galaxy.

The show is now live with the opening keynote and although the demo is glitchy (it's crashed once already!) they've showcased the Lorville main city landing zone on the planet Hurston, as well as a new large ship called the Kraken.

The new planet and city teased in the keynote will roll out to backers over incremental patches.

Co-developed with Faceware Technologies, "Face and Voice over IP" allows players to connect their webcams and control their in-game character's facial expressions with their own, creating a new level of immersion never before seen in video games.

As well as that new feature, the Stanton System system will be populated with enemy AI for the FPS sections.

There are also a bunch of new weapons and ships, which you can check out on the official site.

Squadron 42 is set to be a more linear, cinematic experience than the persistent-world of Star Citizen, inviting players to "join the courageous men and women of the 2nd Fleet as they stand strong against the greatest threats the UEE has ever faced". I also can't wait to get our new planet, Hurston, and it's major city, Lorville, out to everyone. It's clear that many such fans are not gamers: one reply to Hamill's tweet seems to think that Squadron 42 is a Netflix show, much to the amusement of davidnfilms on Reddit, who says: "we've reached people guys... like a lot of people".
