Final Countdown & Final Stretch Goal
We've come along way! With 48 hours to go, we're at well over $4 million and we've already set the record for crowd-funding games! The final few stretch goals are near… the campaign couldn't have gone any better.
It's time to reveal how the campaign is going to end. Over the next 24 hours you're going to get a number of updates about all aspects of the Star Citizen project at the Roberts Space Industries website. Everything from art to music to team member introductions… the sort of things you've come to expect over the past month, released quickly! Then, at the 24 hour mark (1 PM CST on Sunday) the party really gets started.
We will be live-streaming the end of the campaign live from Cloud Imperium's temporary offices in Austin, Texas! You'll watch Chris and the team broadcast the final hours of the campaign telethon-style until this is all finally over. We'll be answering fan questions, giving away prizes and generally having a great time… and since we'll be in Austin we've arranged for some special guests from the old days of Origin and developing Wing Commander to stop by and swap war stories!
We're also going to be offering several limited-time special-offer ship packages. We want to stress beforehand, though, that these are ONLY to support the game. Every single additional ship we offer for sale in the next 48 hours will never be sold for cash again… but they will be available through gameplay. If you decide to pick one up, it should be because you want to support Star Citizen and not because you're worried it's a ship you'll never have otherwise. Check back soon to see the new ship options!
Wait, what's this? Breaking news! A message bearing the golden seal of the Imperator himself: Congratulation Citizens! Your dedication to the cause is impossible to deny. Working with the imperial fleet shipyards, I have secured one final lofty stretch goal for you: if we can reach the previously impossible $5.5 million level, then the Bengal carrier will be playable in the finished game. It will be very difficult to earn a Bengal… but when you do, it will be an amazing base for clans, squadrons and guilds. Can we get there?
You heard the man! $5.5 million to fly the Bengal carrier in Star Citizen. Here's to a great 48 hours!
