Cloud Imperium's space combat and exploration simulation game continues to rake in an almost obscene amount of cash. Star Citizen is being spearheaded by Chris Roberts, the man behind the hit space game Wing Commander and Privateer.
It is because of his involvement with those beloved classics that this game has been able to surpass $33 million in funding. In turn this new funding milestone has unlocked the Anvil Carrack and the Drake Herald ships for backers, according to an announcement by developer Chris Roberts made in an official blog post.
The Anvil Carrack is an exploration craft offering reinforced fuel tanks for extended space exploration, an advanced jump drive array and computer core room for faster travel. The Drake Herald is a small, stealthy armored ship featuring advanced encryption software and an armored computer core.
