Star Citizen’s singleplayer Squadron 42 shows improved models and more in new trailers

Star Citizen Alpha

CitizenCon 2018 brings us even more news for Star Citizen, this time it’s all about the singleplayer portion of the game, Squadron 42.

The first trailer showcases a much-improved graphical engine that is looking a lot more refined than footage we’ve seen previously of this aspect. The pre-rendered cutscenes look really cool, although there isn’t any actual live gameplay, which is a shame, I would have loved to see a fight against the Vanduul in-progress. There’s a lot of giant starships, space battles, and plenty of action in this new trailer, go check it out.

The second trailer puts the spotlight on Mark Hamill’s character, Lt. Cmdr. Steve “Old Man” Colton. CIG looks to be doing a lot better at using the legendary actor to full effect. The translation from performance and mocap to in-game looks a lot better now than it did previously. The cast also includes Liam Cunningham, Andy Serkis, Ben Mendelsohn, Gillian Anderson, Gary Oldman, Mark Strong and John Rhys Davies.

To see more Star Citizen news, check out some of the other Around the Verse videos, or maybe you want to see some more Squadron 42 gameplay. CIG has also responded to ongoing player outbursts over “Pay-to-Win” currency systems, and finally, you should see some really cool ships being built for Star Citizen.

Check out the latest patch notes on the official site. Cloud Imperium Games has currently raised $195,020,849 from 2,102,521 backers overall. Looks like we’ve finally crossed that $195 million mark.
