Star Citizen hits $18 million funding goal, $20 million will bring combat to select planets

Saturday, 7th September 2013 14:52 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Star Citizen has surpassed its $18 million funding tier, and now backers will receive an “exclusive star system” as noted last week when it smashed the $17 million funding tier.

Now, a new tier has be set for $20 million and if met, players will be able to participate in some firs-person combat on select planets which are “lawless.”

Combat was already enables through boarding, landing, and on space stations but this will enable players to “take the fight to the ground.”

A preview of the Terra Prime landing zone was also posted on the official update, and it’s also below.

Some changes to prices in the store have also been changed, and you can have a look through the list through the link.

Star Citizen is slated for release on PC in late 2014.

    $18,000,000?!? Christ. There are impoverished third world countries that won’t see that much money in a year.

    This game reminds me why PC gaming is still alive 8)

    Wing Commander III was a classic PC game!

    I wish they’d stop portraying this as crowd funding. It isn’t. It was before, but now they’re just making money selling ingame items for an unfinished game. Quite clever, but it’s not crowd funding.

    #1 he talked for weeks about how awesome PCs are and that no one makes PC exclusives anymore, how great the graphics could be etc

    So he got tons of money from all the PC players and then announced he may do a PS4 port after the PC version is released :)

    I am looking forward to this.

    You know, this would be the most amazing ‘take the money and run’ con ever if it did turn out to be that. They’re under no obligation to actually finish the game, after all, or even make it beyond a few simple modules to keep people interested long enough for them to hit their ideal goal.

    I don’t think that’ll actually happen, but still.
