Star Citizen has seen a sizable leak of unreleased resources to a few members of the public, after a community manager posted a partial URL in a screenshot. Someone guessed the rest, and the rest is now history.
Around 48GB of work in progress assets have been acquired by — at least — a couple of people outside Cloud Imperium Games, and though the guessed link has now been shut down by CIG, the assets are now on the web.
People have thus been loading the assets up in Cryengine, seeing as that’s what Star Citizen is being made in, and looked around. This has resulted in things like this:
Things might look a bit off or wrong in the assets leaked, but that’s likely down to CIG using its own in-house toolset rather than the game itself. Resulting in the somewhat rubbish look of the leaked assets.
Anyway, Star Citizen has — at the time of writing — raked in some $83 million in funding over it’s life cycle.
