Star Citizen’s crowd-funding campaign is nearing its end, therefore, Chris Roberts and his team decided to push it a little bit more and announce a new stretch goal. After all, they are currently well over $4 million and they’ve already set the record for crowd-funding games.
As said, Star Citizen has hit its $4 million goal, meaning that it will come with 60 star systems, additional flyable ship on launch and enhanced boarding options, Track-IR support and a new alien race. Good news for all modders too, as Cloud Imperium will offer professional Mod Tools for free.
If the game reaches its $5 million goal, it will match Privateer (in size) as it will feature 70 star systems to explore on launch and will come with Tablet companion Application to check on your inventory, commision or find missions and get the galactic news feed. Moreover, Squadron 42 will feature 50 missions and Cloud Imperium will be offering Celebrity voice-acting for it, bringing back at least one favorite from Wing Commander.
According to Chris Roberts and his team, over the next 24 hours they will be live-streaming the end of the campaign live from Cloud Imperium’s temporary offices in Austin, Texas.
“You’ll watch Chris and the team broadcast the final hours of the campaign telethon-style until this is all finally over. We’ll be answering fan questions, giving away prizes and generally having a great time… and since we’ll be in Austin we’ve arranged for some special guests from the old days of Origin and developing Wing Commander to stop by and swap war stories.”

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
