You may recall Star Citizen, a game that has been in development since 2012, which feels like ages ago. But a new trailer for the game was just released which showed a lot of celebrity actors that will come in the single player mode of the game. Surprisingly though, there still wasn’t any mention of the release date for the game.
Star Citizen has been in development since 2011 for PC, and is mostly finance by a large crowd-funding campaign. The game’s full launch was anticipated to be in 2014, but delays and product expansions of the gameplay features have led to postponements. A large part of the crowd-funding money has gone in roping in big name actors in the game’s Squadron 42, which is a single player mode. Check out the trailer below.
The trailer released by the developer Cloud Imperium Games was shown at CitizenCon, a Star Citizen fan event. In the trailer actors like Gary Oldman, Mark Hamill, Gillian Anderson, Mark Strong, Henry Cavill, Liam Cunningham, John Rhys Davies and Ben Mendelsohn make up the impressive lineup of celebrities.
In Squadron 42, which is said to be a cinematic single player adventure, you will see yourself playing as a rookie combat pilot, where you will come in contact with the characters that are being played by these celebrities.
Squadron 42 will cost you $45 and will give you instant access to the Arena Commander mode, which is a racing/dogfighting mode in the game. However, the mode is still in development with no hint of a release date.
Over the years, Star Citizen has given out such playable modes for PC players in a series of alpha components since 2013. From exploration to combat in space were the main features of these playable components.
