Star Citizen has now hit $23 million in funding, which has unlocked the Xi’an scout plane. According to Cloud Imperium’s Chris Roberts, the goal isn’t “simply to add an extra ship to the game,” but to add a new type of ship which can be expanded upon. “Once we’ve put the effort into building an alien experience for the Khartu, we can apply it to other Xi’an ships moving forward. Essentially, the extra funding lets us build an even more immersive universe,” he said. The next stretch goal is $25 million and upon being reached it will provide a larger alpha testing net with extra servers and worldwide infrastructure. This will also expand the number of remaining alpha slots. Thanks, Massively.
