At the Game Developers Conference (GDC) Online taking place at the Austin Convention Center, Cloud Imperium Game
, created by Chris Roberts, who helped define the space sim genre in computer games during the 1990s with his Wing Commander and Privateer franchises, announced Star Citizen
, a new PC game that promises to offer high quality cutting-edge visuals and technology, a virtual world that is immersive and detailed, a sophisticated storyline that is wide in scope and visceral, and heart-pounding space combat.
Star Citizen, still in early development stages, will not require a subscription, but will not be free-to-play either. Roberts said the game will be available for a one-time purchase. And while players will be able to play in the Star Citizen universe for free, there will also be virtual items available for purchase with in-game credits so players can customize their ships and other items.
