PAX East is going on this week, which means it’s yet another big event that features gamers from around the globe interacting with the heavies of the game industry. It feels like we have so many of these events now that it is a bit dizzying, but when something cool comes of it, like this, I’m not going to complain. After a lot of promises and a ton of money donated, we finally get to see a little glimpse of what Star Citizen is going to look like. It’s AMAZING.
Look, when you think that $41 million has gone into Star Citizen since 2011 you gotta be thinking that this game should be blowing our minds. There is actually an expectation from backers that we’ll see the dogfighting module within the month, so finally getting a glimpse of what it’s like zipping around space in your cockpit is even better. This video footage is from PAX East 2014 and is from a presentation to what seems like a bunch of super enthusiastic gamers. The fact that the pilot hopping into the cockpit and putting a helmet on gets a huge reaction is proof enough that this game is onto something and that there is a huge demand for it.
So watch this and be aware that this is all very much a work in progress. This is just to show off what to expect when Star Citizen’s dogfighting module drops.
