Star Citizen continues to soar, as the $29M stretch goal has been eclipsed, adding Enhanced Mission Design for Squadron 42.
According to Roberts, "The team at Foundry 42 has big plans for Squadron 42, and we’re going to provide extra funding to make it a true spiritual successor to Wing Commander! Squadron 42 can go above and beyond anything you’ve seen before. From opening with an epic battle instead of a training patrol to missions that seamlessly combine boarding and space combat, we aim to put you right into the action! Additional funding will let the team realize this, with enhanced mission design and more resources and animations to enhance fidelity."
Also included in the stretch foal is the RSI Orion mining platform, which players can own to mine their own resources, with high-grade turret-mounted tractor beam arrays, durable exterior-accessible ‘saddlebags’ for mineral storage and a personal cabin.
The next stretch goal is at $32M, and Roberts is polling players which to add: a cargo hauler, an information runner, or a dedicated salvage ship.
