Assuming that centuries from now we are still celebrating ‘Talk Like a Pirate Day’, what better way to complement your short-lived change in vocal mannerisms than getting a fancy pirate-themed ship? While sadly, none of us will be around at that time, developer Cloud Imperium Games are offering you the chance to live that experience (slightly) in their ambitious alpha-access space-sim game Star Citizen should you consider parting with some cash.
Separate from the usual ships they have available to pledge towards, from now until Monday 20 September 2021, you have the chance to pledge towards one of several Drake Interplanetary ships which are only on offer during limited periods of time during the year. With ships like the Buccaneer, Cutlass Blue/Red, Caterpillar and Herald which can be flown in-game right now and a selection of concept ships such as the Vulture and Corsair available to pledge towards – see if any of there are worthy of joining your fleet by clicking HERE.
All of these pledges are ships only, and will require a separate package pledge to actually get access to the Alpha Testing builds of Star Citizen.
In development by Cloud Imperium Games and their studios across North America and Europe, Star Citizen is being helmed by Wing Commander (1990s) creator Chris Roberts. The game has currently been in a long-term alpha phase with no confirmed release date. Despite this, the studio has raised more than $265 million USD through on-going crowdfunding. Please keep in mind should you decide to purchase towards Star Citizen, that this is an incomplete project and that you are pledging towards an extended crowdfunding campaign with no 100% guarantee of a finished product.
