The best bit of the Star Citizen Citizencon stream was clearly this giant sandworm

Star Citizen gets a bit Dune, a bit phallic and a bit shit-your-pants in this snippet of footage from a recent fan event.

Watch on YouTube

Taken from the Star Citizen CitizenCon stream, the snippet of footage above was uploaded by fan channel Star Citizen Universe.

According to Star Citizen fans on Reddit who were watching the full stream, the console you see part way through was an accidental restart of the scripted events of the demo, which is why it ends suddenly.

Apparently the stream then took another look at the worm but at the end of the encounter the camera zoomed out through the atmosphere, allowing viewers to see how Star Citizen’s engine displayed it at different scales.

Anyway, there you go: it’s a giant sandworm in Star Citizen. Given this was a scripted event it might have been part of a mission. Unfortunately the Star Citizen story campaign has been delayed so we probably won’t see this in playable form for a while yet.

There is absolutely no need to leave half a dozen quotes from Dune in the comments section; surely nobody could view this footage and think of anything else.
