Today, Cloud Imperium Games is launching a new major update for its Star Citizen space simulator.
The new update, Alpha 3.17.2, increases server capacity to 100 from the previous 50, which will help players find company while they wait for server mergers, new missions, exciting features, and the Anvil Centurion anti-aircraft vehicle.
Perhaps the most interesting element is the Siege of Orison dynamic event, which will challenge players to free the gas giant’s floating platforms with the help of the trusty lead and lasers.
Below you can take a look at the trailer for the entire update, the Siege of Orison trailer, and some images of the Centurion.
Meanwhile, the total amount of crowdfunding has exceeded $489 million, and it currently stands at $489,293,293. The number of registered accounts recently exceeded 4 million, reaching 4,019,108 to date.
Star Citizen will be released sometime in the 21st century.
