Another day, another million. A new
Letter from the Chairman on the Roberts Space Industries website
crowd funding for Star Citizen
has hit $31 million, which triggers a
stretch goal they hadn't warned us about. Word is:
Hitting $31 million
means you unlock the first of the player-selected role ships, the RSI Orion!
Like the Starfarer, the Orion is the kind of ship you probably wouldn’t have
flown in Wing Commander… but we intend to make it just as interesting as a
fighter or a bomber!
- RSI Orion – Roberts Space Industries’ goal
has always been to make the stars available to individual Citizens. Now,
with the RSI Orion mining platform, RSI is letting individuals take over a
process formerly controlled by megacorporations. The Orion’s features
include high-grade turret-mounted tractor beam arrays, durable
exterior-accessible ‘saddlebags’ for mineral storage and a cabin designed by
the team that brought you the Aurora and Constellation!
The voting is a lot closer now, but it looks like “Explorer” has edged out
the crowd to be our next ship!
