Star Citizen goes for broke with latest announcement

Star Citizen, slowly getting closer to something akin to Free to Play.

Well, it appears that you don’t have to put hundreds or even thousands of dollars into Star Citizen to be able to play the different game modules that they have available anymore. Roberts Space Industries made this announcement this week in regards to opening up their content to anyone that has backed the game.

“Anyone who has pledged for a Star Citizen Package can now play today without worrying they won’t have access to some portion of the ‘Verse in the future. No Star Marine pass, no Alpha 2.0 pass… no additional payment needed for any module in the works, pre-release.”

Maybe this means they’ll put a better explanation into the game itself. I downloaded the game last week and got a $60 ship, but it wasn’t until angry Star Citizen fans told me I wasn’t doing all the hidden things right, that I knew there was more to do besides walk around a hangar. Then again, I don’t know what to expect from a game that asks me to donate twice before I even was able to download the game, but can’t take the time to say “go this way to see other cool stuff!”

We’ll see.
