YouTube’s ‘Xenthor Xi’ has shared a video, showing one hour of gameplay footage from Star Citizen 3.0 in 4K. According Cloud Imperium, Star Citizen 3.0 is available on the PTU and the first wave of testers got their hands on it.
The goal of this initial PTU release is to increase its total player count in an effort test concurrency. The team also needs players to focus on testing the traversal system by quantum traveling and landing on moons. Furthermore, players should locate and visit Levski, and just explore the space around Crusader.
Star Citizen Alpha 3.0 will feature planetary landings, persistent universe content and a new back-end item system. It will also come with an implementation of commodities, trading Automated cargo buy/sell kiosks, and, indirectly, piracy. Furthermore, it will pack network improvements and user interface enhancements.
We don’t know when Star Citizen 3.0 will go be available to all backers. Our guess is that this won’t happen this year, however Cloud Imperium may pleasantly surprise us.
It’s worth noting that the alpha 3.0 release of Star Citizen was originally meant to go live this August. However, Cloud Imperium delayed it to September. Then, the team slightly delayed it until October when it became available to the Evocati Test Flight volunteer members.
Enjoy the video and stay tuned for more!
