Star Citizen is easily one of the most anticipated PC games out there. Over 640,000 backers have contributed a combined $60 million to support the crowd-funded title thus far, and the game is really starting to take shape. During the PAX Australia expo over the weekend, developer Chris Roberts showed off nine minutes of gameplay from the FPS module:
A lot of the footage is fairly dark, and YouTube's compression obscures some of the finer details. I also see a few graphical glitches here and there. The visuals are otherwise impressive, though, and the zero-gravity combat looks intriguing, if somewhat uncoordinated.
Star Citizen won't be finished until 2016 at the earliest, according to Wikipedia's estimate, so there's plenty of time to smooth out the rough edges. Backers may also get to sample the FPS component by the end of the year. Early modules based on the game's hangar and dogfighting components have already been released, and the "ship-boarding" FPS module is up next.
