Star Citizen is an online space simulation game currently in development by Behaviour Interactive and Cloud Imperium Games for Microsoft Windows. Set in the far future of the 30th century, players set out to make a name for themselves among the stars and (hopefully) earn citizenship in the United Empire of Earth which dominates the galaxy. As an open world game, Star Citizen promises ship customization, space combat, ground combat, a dynamic, player-controlled economy and a persistent game world.
Beyond this massively multiplayer world, Star Citizen also includes a self-contained campaign mode, with drop-in multiplayer capabilities, known as Squadron 42. Plot details have yet to be revealed, although the alpha release of this single-player mode is scheduled to be released at least a year earlier than the final release, and some months before the multiplayer Star Citizen universe.
Oculus Rift compatibility has been confirmed.
