Star Citizen surpasses $21 million stretch goal, Salvage Mechanic career confirmed
The next stretch goal of $22 million will add a facial capture system which will allow players to use their cameras to place their face on their pilots.
Additionally, Chris Roberts also revealed that the $23 million stretch goal will contain the Xi’an Scout. Here’s the description, per r.com/star-citizen/news/salvage-mechanic-confirmed-as-star-citizen-breaks-21-million?utm_source=feedly” target=”_new”>TenTonHammer:
Xi’an Scout Unlocked! The Khartu is the light attack craft of the Xi’An military. Contrary to Human ship design, the Khartu doesn’t have a traditional main thruster, instead featuring an array of maneuvering thrusters on articulated rigs. This design allows for incredible agility, making them the bane of UEE pilots, who bestowed the nickname ‘Quark’ because when all of the thrusters are firing, the ship looks like a spark flying through space. The Xi’an Aopoa corporation also manufactures an export model, the Khartu-al, for sale to human civilians as a dedicated scout/explorer. The export model features the same Xi’an maneuvering rig, but control surfaces modified for human use and a more limited armament.
Star Citizen is slated for release on PC in late 2014.
