During CitizenCon last weekend we got our first look at Star Citizen planet side gameplay. Chris Roberts, the lead designer for Star Citizen gave an 11 minute long presentation focusing on the ground side of the game. Some of the points he touched on were missions, attention to detail and additional planet side PVE content. If you weren’t excited for Star Citizen before, this video might just change your mind.
Most of the content for the planet side gameplay is currently non functional in this early prototype. Roberts states that everything shown is in engine with no cut scenes.The planet side footage boasts an impressive 30 million polygons. Even in its early stages everything seems to have a high level of polish. The video in its entirety is available below. If you are even remotely interested in this Sci-Fi MMORPG it’s well worth your time to watch.
