Star Citizen

Watch the full, five-minute Star Citizen trailer

Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts revealed this morning that he's returning to game development with Star Citizen, a massive, persistent-universe space combat sim which he's crowdfunding at robertsspaceindustries.com. I recently spoke to Roberts and got a look at his prototype - this five minute trailer is a tightly choreographed version of that demonstration, but I can verify that it's in-engine footage representative of the prototype's capabilities. Prepare your spring-eyed gag glasses.
