If we had a dime for each Star Citizen comment page … well, by now we could probably buy the entry-level game pack from the space MMO store and start playing the Alpha.
Sometimes it seems like everyone has an opinion on the biggest crowdfunding project of all time, which has now raised half a billion dollars from fans. Star Citizen not only moves players, it often divides them. How much, we want to clarify once and for all with a survey of GameStar readers.
Star Citizen Time Travel: What Happened to Chris Roberts’ Promises?
This week we report in detail on Star Citizen, because after the Citizencon yesterday, the anniversary of the announcement and the start of the Kickstarter campaign are also approaching. You can read more about this in our theme week »10 Years of Star Citizen«, an overview of all content is available here:

What do you think of Star Citizen?
Now it’s your turn: Do you like Star Citizen? Maybe you are already out and about as a supporter in the online universe? Or you want to wait for the MMO to actually finish. Are you only interested in Squadron 42? Or do you think Chris Roberts’ project will never end? Vote now in our poll! Of course, as always, we look forward to your detailed impressions, for which we have reserved a place for you in the forum due to the planned moderation effort!
Star Citizen is still in development, but buyers will have access to an alpha version. This is regularly updated and expanded, but currently only 50 players per server allowed – in individual test cases even 100. In the podcast we recently talked to two community experts about the progress of the project:

Squadron 42 is the original single player campaign announced for 2014, which has been updated with more elaborately designed planets and greater freedom of play between missions. It is designed to deliver a full cinematic presentation of motion capture Hollywood actors and dozens of hours of single player entertainment.
We look forward to your votes and opinions, which we will then process in an evaluation.
