Cloud Imperium CEO Chris Roberts published the 74th episode of Star Citizen’s 10 For The Chairman video Q&A series last night. The clip runs for a solid 23 minutes, and as it represents the first episode of 2016, Roberts has quite a lot of ground to cover.
Roberts also addresses the possibility of a used ship market, where players can buy, sell, or trade used starships as part of the in-game economy. In the short-term, players may sell used ships but buying additional ships will happen at NPC dealerships. In the long-term, though, he says that used ship sales will likely make it into the game at some point. Be sure to click on the video above to hear the answers to these and other Star Citizen gameplay questions!
The ship persistence presents an interesting development quandary, particularly for a game like Star Citizen that bills itself as a persistent universe. Roberts answers the question in a thoughtful way, but his answer also raises more questions, particularly when he mentions saving your game by sleeping in your ship!
