Star Citizen isn’t finished yet, but alpha 2.0 brings so may new features and doodads that it’s worth noting.
A new Star Citizen trailer debuted at The Game Awards 2015 to honour the launch of the space sim’s second major alpha release.
The gameplay-heavy trailer is full of vim and vigour – and is it just me, or does the soundtrack channel a little Mass Effect?
Mark Hamill, who has an important role in campaign mode Squadron 42, was on stage partially to promote Star Citizen, although he threw a bit of Star Wars and Joker love in there because why wouldn’t you. Chris Roberts was also in attendance.
In addition, for the next week, everyone with a registered account with the game has free access to three ships to play in Arena Commander:
Aurora MR, Mustang Alpha and Gladius.
You can even invite a friend to try it out. Check out the Star Citizen website for more information.
