Das Entwicklerstudio Cloud Imperium Games rund um den Wing Commander-Erfinder und Game-Designer Chris Roberts hat einen neuen Patch für die Weltraum-Simulation Star Citizen veröffentlicht. Das Update auf die Arena-Commander-Version 1.0.3 bringt zwar nicht allzu viele neue Inhalte und Features mit sich, fügt dem Gladius jedoch endlich Soundeffekte hinzu, bringt eine neue ballistische Waffe der Größe 3 (Gallenson Tactical Tarantula-870-Mk3) ins Spiel und nimmt Anpassungen am User-Interface vor.

Hinzu kommen Verbesserungen an den Reifentexturen des M50, diverse Balancing-Anpassungen und generelle Fehlerbehebungen bei den Raumschiffen, den Komponenten, der Steuerung und dem Gameplay.

Known Issues:

Ships

  • Seal Corporation damage effect displays incorrectly when equipped on an Aurora

Gameplay

  • Vanduul missiles are skipping their flight phase in Coop Vanduul Swarm which prevents a missile warning from being shown and results in the missile teleporting to the targets face

Star Citizen befindet sich derzeit noch in der Crowd-Funding-Phase und demnach liegt demnach noch in einer frühen und unfertigen Version vor, zu der nur Unterstützer des Projekts Zugang haben. Das Projekt wird regelmäßig durch neue Module erweitert, die sich nach und nach zu einem kompletten Spiel zusammenfügen. Im Frühjahr 2015 wird etwa die Beta-Version des Shooter-Parts von Star Citizen erscheinen. Im selben Zeitraum wollen die Entwickler auch die Planeten-Beta an den Start bringen. Im Sommer wird dann die Version 2.0 von Arena Commander folgen, die unter anderem eine Multiplayer-Crew ermöglicht.

Im Herbst feiert die erste Episode der Singleplayer-Kampagne »Squadron 42« ihre Premiere. Sollte alles nach Plan verlaufen, erscheint gegen Ende des Jahres 2015 die Alpha-Version des persistenten Universums für die »Backer« von Star Citizen - also die finanziellen Unterstützer der Crowd-Funding-Kampagne. Konkrete Termine wird das Team aber erst in den nächsten Monaten bekannt gegeben.

Der kommerzielle Release von Star Citizen ist dann für 2016 vorgesehen.
