Chris Roberts' ambitious space combat sim Star Citizen has hit the $18M crowdfunding mark, and with it, exclusive star systems for backers, which essentially means backers will get their own system that is inaccessible to other gamers.
More intriguing is the $20M stretch goal, which will bring "first person combat on select lawless planets. Don’t just battle on space stations and platforms… take the fight to the ground!" This will be a very interesting addition in that it'll take some of the air out of DUST 514, the ground combat game for the PlayStation 3 that augments EVE Online.
