A very large ship and a very small one join Star Citizen’s growing lineup.
Today Cloud Imperium Games released the first look at the next great starship to join the game series.
The RSI Galaxy is not designed as a warship, but comes with the weapons needed for a multi-role ship. It also has a very cool aggressive arrow-shaped appearance.
It has a spacious interior capable of accommodating six players with a full housing section, captain’s office, engineering section, hangar and a modular space that can be adapted for different operational needs.
The three units available are a cargo unit that greatly increases cargo capacity, an upgrade unit that allows you to pick up canisters from mining ships via a tractor beam and refine the materials they gathered, and a multi-bed medical unit.
The ship is designed to work well for a group of friends who want to experience different aspects of Star Citizen gameplay.
Tiy can see what it looks like in the video below, including a hands-on comparison with a Constellation, which appears to be nearly twice the size.
Another brand new ship is the Anvil C8R Pisces, which has just been released and is a variant of the existing Pisces, but is basically designed as a small space ambulance.
By the way, with the current event going on, you can try the game for free until November 30th.
In other Star Citizen news, the crowdfunding total just topped $520 million and currently stands at $520,223,785. That means it has received $11 million in funding since the start of the Interactive Aerospace Expo event last Friday.
The number of registered accounts has also just passed 4.2 million, reaching 4,226,473 at the time of writing.
As usual, we know that not all of these are paying customers, as many accounts are created for free flight events like the one going on right now. A few weeks ago, we learned that around 1.7 million of them had bought the game, along with an update from Chris Roberts himself.
