Star Citizen is one of those games that’s in an odd place with me when it comes to upcoming titles. It’s kind of out already, but not really. I bought into it years ago, and I load it up about once per year to see where it’s at, and then immediately get overwhelmed by what is available and at the same time disappointed by what isn’t yet. There’s no denying that it’s an ambitious project, however, and the trailers that have been released in the past have been stunning to watch.
This trend continues as Roberts Space Industries has released a new trailer at CitizenCon showcasing several high-caliber actors, including Mark Hamill, Gary Oldman, Andy Serkis, and Gillian Anderson.
Squadron 42 is the singleplayer component of Star Citizen and the trailer gets me excited for playing this type of seemingly immersive story out in space. There are still no details on a confirmed release date of Squadron 42, but considering how long Star Citizen has been in development, this must be any day now. Of course, I’m being sarcastic, but it would be nice to get some roadmap updates from RSI soon.
When we do, we’ll be sure to report it for you here. For now, you may keep dreaming of playing a part in a modern space simulation reminiscent of the great Wing Commander.
