Star Citizen's record breaking crowdfunding campaign keeps on going. The game has attracted over $31 million in funding from over 313 000 backers. As a result, the game's single-player story-based campaign called Squadron 42 will be considerably expanded.
“The team at Foundry 42 has big plans for Squadron 42, and we’re going to provide extra funding to make it a true spiritual successor to Wing Commander! Squadron 42 can go above and beyond anything you’ve seen before. From opening with an epic battle instead of a training patrol to missions that seamlessly combine boarding and space combat, we aim to put you right into the action! Additional funding will let the team realize this, with enhanced mission design and more resources and animations to enhance fidelity.”
