One Hour Star Citizen Video

A new user-created video shows off the first hour of gameplay in Star Citizen, the upcoming crowdfunded space game first announced a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away (thanks DSOGaming). The clip shows the latest build of version 3.0 in 4K resolution in ultra widescreen format.

I see that Cutter's little brother is posting again on Cutter's account. Put the mouse down kid.
His little brother was emancipated by the age of 15 and moved out of the house. This is pure unadultered whiny white man that cutter does best.

And we wouldn't have it any other way, except for when Blue's deletes his post.

Here's a game for the 1% gamers with $4,000 computers. My potato computer would probably blow up if I went anywhere near that thing.

Yeah I've given up on the idea of being able to ever run this game. My priorities have shifted in the last 5 years and I'm not the type of person to spend a fortune building the kind of computer that can run this smoothly.

I backed for SQ42 and at the rate we're going we'll see that in 5 years probably. One thing these videos have shown me is that Chris Roberts doesn't particularly know what makes games *fun*.

Meh. Oh well.

The irony in your statement is that by the time SQ42 is released today's $4,000 powerhouse will probably be like $650

Stop being a muppet. All games have hair and facial animations. As for Elite, I've played it a bit whilst waiting for SC but it just doesn't hold my attention.

Can it run Star Citizen will replace Can it run Crysis as the new meme.
Doubtful. If I can get up to 80fps on a poorly optimised alpha when they haven't even implemented Vulkan support then I don't think the final game will be all that ridiculous. In fact by taking full advantage of the PC platform I expect it to actually do better than most multi-platform releases. Right now most of the performance issues stem from server bottlenecks but recent PTU patches have substantially improved things - it's why they've been running tests with the player count increased from 24 to 60. When object container streaming is fully integrated that will help performance significantly.

The guy who made the video claims he used an average spec machine with just a 980Ti video card.

So 5 years and 100 million bucks later they have one hour of boring as hell gameplay to show for it. Wow. Just wow.

Give me a break man. They have nearly completed a single system, from which one of the beta players made this video. That system will probably have a couple dozen hours of gameplay, depending on how much you want to putz around.

Star Citizen has screwed up in so many ways that there's no need to just make shit up about them.

Hey Koolaid!

One could say an indy game Empyrion can do most of this and have a full blown craft engine where you can build ships and buildings brick by brick and make/share blue prints with the world. Doesn't look as nice, but the whole you can build anything to me equals or beats looks.

KickStarter money well spent, what do the other 1.9 million citizens get besides ship jpegs.

They can play the current Alpha build, follow the videos of the development progress or participate in the online community. The game is getting made, it's just not as quickly as people would like.

Hey, congrats on winning an Optane. I am looking forward to trying 3.0, which sadly is months behind schedule. Hoping I can cruise around a few planets and maybe do a few missions in beautifully rendered space.
Hehe, cheers. Just be realistic with your expectations. It's a major improvement but there's still a long way to go. It's much better played with a group of friends.

By the time this game comes out, it's gonna look old and outdated. There is so much already in there that looks like been there done that. Heck the spaceship in Alien Isolation has a more realistic look than that.

I also find the facial animations to look quirky but I'm sure they can fix that up.
It won't because they are constantly improving the fidelity. Go back and watch the original Kickstarter video and the progress is incredible. Even year on year the fidelity is improving considerably.

As for facial tech, it's work in progress. The videos they demonstrated as CitizenCon show where it will head up. The hair is also work in progress and at an early stage in development.

...95 percent of which is going to be descending to and ascending from planets, moons and space stations according to this one hour tech demo video of pure boredom. Elite Dangerous is a thriller compared to this.

Go play LoD then, with your buddy Derek Smart. Geez

I think you have a record for the longest account with least amount of comments.

Impressive! The core engine mechanics seem to be in place.

Next up, gameplay systems!

Excited, in a decade or two this will be one of the premier beta stage games.

FTFY!

After gameplay systems comes content. CR promised 100 systems. There's less than one. Hell, I'd settle for 10 complete systems at this point.

Also, we've heard nothing about the single player campaign for years.
Squadron 42 is going to be demoed during the Holiday Livestream this year. What and how much they're going to show remains to be seen.

Performance is substantially better in 3.0. Depending on the server I've been getting as much as 60-80fps, though that reduces as the server continues. There's more work to come but this is the first time performance has come even close to acceptable in the persistent universe.

As for gameplay and enjoyability, that still isn't there. It's better than it was but it's a long way from being a game for the average gamer. It really comes down to how quickly they can iterate and add gameplay features. This year has been chronically slow and pace needs to pick up.

All that said I'm happy I went to CitizenCon this year and I even managed to win an Optane 900P, which was a major bonus. Progress is being made, even if it's not as quick as I'd like.

Hey, congrats on winning an Optane. I am looking forward to trying 3.0, which sadly is months behind schedule. Hoping I can cruise around a few planets and maybe do a few missions in beautifully rendered space.
