Star Citizen has one foot out the door and Squadron 42 keeps making passive aggressive comments. Probably.

Star Citizen story module Squadron 42 is ready to strike out and forge a new life for itself.

As announced in December, the campaign mode is going solo, and will be available either as a standalone product or add-on to the base sandbox game. This division will occur on February 14, which is pzuzlingly anti-thematic; Valentine’s Day is the day we try very hard not to break up.

Well, whatever: if you’re keen on the star-studded story but can’t be arsed with the open-ended sim MMO, you’ll be able to pick up one without the other – and vice versa, of course.

If you do want both modules, you might want to consider picking them up as a package by pledging the appropriate amount to the crowdfunding campaign before the big day; it’ll save you a few dollars, apparently.

Visit Roberts Space Industries for more information. Neither module has been dated for full release, although they’re expected this year.
