Mark Hamill graces the cover of this month's PC Gamer magazine, and we got to have a nice chat with him on the set of Squadron 42, the single-player campaign in Star Citizen. And now we can finally "meet the Old Man" (that's him, believe it or not) in a new Star Citizen teaser.

The trailer is only about 32 seconds long, and Hamill appears in it for roughly ten percent of that time, but it's still a fun little bit of promotional cinema. More interesting, though, is the "behind-the-scenes" video below, that demonstrates the mo-cap process in action. It's just too bad that we don't get to see more of the final (or near-final) product than what's in the teaser. I continue to hold out hope that someday, we will.

Andy has been gaming on PCs from the very beginning, starting as a youngster with text adventures and primitive action games on a cassette-based TRS80. From there he graduated to the glory days of Sierra Online adventures and Microprose sims, ran a local BBS, learned how to build PCs, and developed a longstanding love of RPGs, immersive sims, and shooters. He began writing videogame news in 2007 for The Escapist and somehow managed to avoid getting fired until 2014, when he joined the storied ranks of PC Gamer. He covers all aspects of the industry, from new game announcements and patch notes to legal disputes, Twitch beefs, esports, and Henry Cavill. Lots of Henry Cavill.
