Unlocked: ORIGIN M50 Interceptor

Good work, Kickstarter! You've hit the $1.375M level and unlocked the ORIGIN M50, a sporty new fighter that will be a joy to fly for anyone with a need for speed.

If you want to get from point A to point B as quickly as possible and with as much style as possible then ORIGIN's M50 is for you.

The core spaceframe is used by both racing teams and for military courier missions, but the civilian M50 is a luxury spacecraft like no other. Perfect for the mercenary who prefers speed over armor in a dogfight... or the weekend warrior looking to impress the ladies.

      Same bere. Anychance we can get this as a digital add on under $100. I would add that to my pledge.

      Ooooh.... Now this is a ship I want. Any chance of getting it as a digital add-on?

      @Mikael: When the update says something else on the kickstarter than in the email it means they have made a correction after sending the email.

      Promising little titbits of information on the game at set levels of funding is, clearly, a very effective means of keeping excitement and anticipation high once the funding goal has already been met, to ensure the highest possible finanicial support and quality game. A salute this strategy - It's got me hugely interested rather than just merely interested in the game; now I just need to worry how I sate my interest during the long development cycle!

      The email says 11,000 kg and the Kickstarter says 14,000 kg. Which is it? This is HIGHLY relevant (or, perhaps, not)

      @Spyke

      @Kevin: They've already had discussions on the various thrusters on their ship design doc. You can find it over on the main RSI over here: http://www.robertsspaceindustries.com/ships-plan/

      Honda makes great vehicles, maybe you mean to say Hyundai or Kia perhaps.

      Also when will there be details in regards to the thrust output of the different thruster variants.

      @James Breitung

      I think Z3 was probably the better BMW to compare it to. Smaller, less cargo space. Both are fast.

      Z3? More like a M3.

    15. Archer Collins on November 16, 2012

      So, anybody up for finding out if the "A-Wing Slash" is a functional tactic in this game?

      So this is the BMW Z3 of this game. :)

    17. Shrike on November 16, 2012

      Oh haha they changed the thruster count. When I looked it said 16 x TR2. I wouldn't mind that many! :D

    18. Joseph Doherty on November 16, 2012

      Personally I think it will be great for scouting and hit and run by pirates and mercs. Its fast enough to get out of a pinch and live to fight another day. Could be great for chasing down fleeing ships and luring ships into traps.

    19. Shrike on November 16, 2012

      Wow, that's a lot of maneuvering thrusters. I'm noticing a trend with Origin here! Lots and lots of thrusters, speed, and style!

      @Kimberly: Origin ships are meant to be luxury ships, that's just their thing. The Constellation is considered a luxury ship as she is the top of the line in regards to what RSI has to offer to civilians it seems. The Aurora and maybe Freelancer will probably not be as luxurious.

    20. Kimberly on November 16, 2012

      This sounds like a pretty neat ship. :)

      One thing I've noticed, though, is that most of the ships released so far are luxury versions. Will there game also feature bootstrap, utilitarian spaceships for players?

    21. Upnat0m on November 16, 2012

      Awesome...i think ORGIN jumpworks will be my fav Ship seller
