Combining the best of Wing Commander, Privateer, and Freelancer into a single game that runs on CryEngine 3? Just made a pledge.

Long interview with Chris Roberts: https://www.develop-online.net/features/1731/Reaching-for-the-stars-Chris-Roberts
Quote:
So what is it you’ve been working on?
What I’m building is sort of rolling Wing Commander, Freelancer and Privateer into one overarching package.
The bigger idea is the overarching game is called Star Citizen. I’m focusing solely on PC and high-end PC, and I’m making a point to come back. My old games, such as Wing Commander, were famous for pushing the hardware.

In the games business, the industry is very myopic, it’s all, like, ‘PC’s Dead, consoles are the future, now social games are the future, now mobile is the future’, and now it’s the same with tablets.

The way I view it is in the gamescape, all those things exist, and mobile, tablet and social have just been expanding the amount of people that have been playing it.

But I definitely think that there are large communities that aren’t getting attention and one of the biggest communities is PC gaming. On the PC side, there is hardly anyone that’s doing specific games for the for the platform or pushing the hardware, so, yes, you get a fair number of PC games, but they’re all ports of consoles games.

That means you’re getting a game that’s built for seven-year-old technology. The PS3 and Xbox 360 are locked in 2005, and the modern day gaming PC is ten times more powerful than what you can do on console, there is a lot more memory and a lot more power.

This is just so awesome! I'll definitely be pledging and getting at least the $250 package!

1x "Come Fly with Me" Ship Pledge for $250.00 each
Subtotal  : $250.00 USD
Shipping  : $15.00 USD
Total     : $265.00 USD
So it seems like close to 5 000 people have already signed up, they need 20 000 to get the big publishers to jump in and support their game
We do get our money back if they don't raise enough players
they also let you choose to settle for a smaller scale of the game, if they can't raise enough funding
the fact this game lets you create user created contents, and then SELL IT in game, is the coolest thing ever!
also stuff you DISCOVER in games, you get to NAME it after yourself (or anything you like), as well as sell the RIGHTS of it to other players to use it.
I'm liking more this game for it's in game economic side of things, than for the military / thief - pirates / PvP
they'll be also adding an Alien tree later on in game, in case you don't want to start as a human.
Anyways I purchased a big ship out right, I'll need a crews to help me run my ship, and the dog fighters, etc.
Definitely CAN NOT run this game by yourself, as you actually need people piloting the gun turrets, engineering, etc
Okay yes you can play this game Solo, if you go for a fighter, but then you'll be alone in the big vast universe, and you might run out of fuel / parts before you reach the next Planet / Job
I'm planning to play Mercenary for hire outright with main emphasis on trade and designing our own stuff to support our "guild / clan / house" in game
So, who's in with me?
I'll most likely be naming it OCN or something along the lines, this forum is a natural for recruiting new players biggrin.gif might as well make it our Guild Name, so all OCN members can run on the same fleet, once enough of us get more battle ships.
I'll also welcome any OCN with their own dog fighters / scout / cargo ship to dock with us as we'll need all the help we can get to establish a strong foot hold in the galaxy.
Man! i'm so excited to get playing.
not even MechWarrior Online has me this worked up biggrin.gif

I will join you, pledged $60 and will probably change it to $125 wingnut when you can change pledge level.

I'm tempted to get onboard. I'v not seen a flight sim that had me this interested since X-Wing vs TIE Fighter. Plus, it should be released after I'm done with school, which is a plus for me since I have zero time for gaming at the moment :/

Wow, this might actually be the first mmo I'm not only interested in but might even play. I hope there's a single player element to it though. I like the idea of being able to simply explore and adventure through the universe as opposed to fighting and smashing everything haha.

Might even join in the pledge to get my own ship.
