Star Citizen developer Cloud Imperium unveiled the new multi-crew feature today at gamescom, and if you missed the Twitch stream. you can have a look at the demo for the feature below.

The feature allows multiple players to hop into a spaceship and pilot it together.

According to PCgamesN, the feature builds on the Arena Commander module, and allows players to work the controls, shoot turrets, and create their own space walks.

No matter what the pilot does, each player will have their own version of gravity, so if the ship goes into a spin, the individual player will remain upright.

“You’re not going to have 50 systems to adventure in, but I think most people are going to have a lot of fun,” studio boss Chris Roberts told the site. “I’m actually expecting people to make up their own action story arc.

“So what we’re planning is, we’ll just have different areas you can fly in and visit and do things in, or have some AI that will spawn.”

Objectives are also likely to be “self-set,” and there will be more “team-oriented stuff” which would allow for a combination of larger multi-crew ships and smaller ones as well.

It’s still in the early stages, but you can have a look at how things are going through the video above.
