Whilst the drama going on behind the scenes of Star Citizen has bought the game a ton of bad publicity as of late, you still have to admit that it's looking pretty damn amazing. And it certainly should, what with a budget of $128 million dollars and everything.
Over two hours of footage was revealed in a livestream event called CitizenCon, which you can enjoy below. If you suffer from vermiphobia, I suggest you stop watching at the 1:54:00 mark.
Directed by Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts, the single-player component of Star Citizen will be titled Squadron 42 and will feature an A-list voice cast including Mark Hamill, Gillian Anderson, Andy Serkis and Mark Strong.
