Asia fleet thread: EDGE Foundation

Spoiler!


-----------------------

Extended trailer:


Spoiler!


Reclaim the stars in the exciting new Space Epic from legendary game designer Chris Roberts.

A rich universe focused on epic space adventure, trading and dogfighting in first person.
Single Player – Offline or Online
Persistent Universe (hosted by US)
No Subscriptions
No Pay to Win

Other quick questions:
Can I have a medium-sized ship with a single launchable fighter aboard? Yes.
Can I get out of my ship and shoot people in first- or third-person combat? Yes.
Can I hijack an enemy ship? Yes.
Can other players hijack my ship? Yes.
Will there be location-specific damage on spaceships? Yes.
Will there be customizable weapons on hardpoints? Yes.
Can I play with a mouse? Yes.
A gamepad? Yes.
A joystick? Yes.
Will it support Oculus Rift? Yes.
Will it take user-created content (ships, etc) and sell it, splitting revenue with creators? Yes.

What will the gameplay be like? (taken from the FAQ)
Star Citizen will feature gameplay similar to the original Wing Commander and Privateer, with a more realistic physics system. This means that it is NOT a ‘click to kill’ interface like most modern MMOs; your success in combat is going to depend as much on your skill with a space fighter as it will with your ship upgrades and your pocket book.

Ship stats comparisons (Thx DF):
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...c&toomany=true

additional post reserved for pledging and LTI details.
below is a comparison of pre- & post- 26 Nov 2012 and 6 July 2013 ship prices.
Original & Veteran backers (pre- 26 Nov 2012 accounts) can still purchase ships at their lower prices, and gift them to anyone.

For LTI clarification, please see the link below the image. My recommendation, if you are interested and trust the original backer, then get the ship from the original backer. http://www.robertsspaceindustries.co...clarification/

Price comparison for packaged ships (between OB & VB). If you want to access the alpha/beta, you'll need to get a package (Mercenary & above, except for OB's Digital Scouts - running out fast!)


Prices for non-packaged ships. (these are just the ships alone, without the frills like star-map, alpha/beta access etc)

Pledge 60 bucks on this on day one

Not only that I like his previous games (Starlancer and Freelancer), I really like his attitude of creating something unconventional, pushing the boundaries in PC games. Seeing countless of console ports out of late is really tiresome.

This game and the VR set Oculus Rift are easily the two tech things that I look forward to the most.

Yea, the time i did there wasn't the digital version. Still considering whether or not to pay extra 5 bucks for the card.

wrong forum
I'd say this is the best forum for this game. This game is created especially for the PC crowd and which part of HWZ has the densest concentration of PC gamers you think? Look around, there're a few other PC game threads here as well.
