    Star Citizen is an upcoming space trading and combat simulator video game for Microsoft Windows and Linux.[6][7] Star Citizen will consist of two main components: first person space combat and trading in a massively multiplayer persistent universe and customizable private servers, and a branching single-player and drop-in co-operative multiplayer[8] campaign (known as Squadron 42). The game will feature Oculus Rift support.


    From his new site Chris Roberts Industries (I'm sure you can figure out the access code).
    FROM THE CHAIRMAN:
    Welcome!

    If you’ve made it here, you probably know who I am. Maybe you have heard of Wing Commander and its sequels, or perhaps Strike Commander, Privateer or Freelancer.

    If not, you’re still welcome!

    I grew up making video games. I sold my first game at the age of 13 and created Wing Commander when I was 21. But 10 years ago, at the height of my career I took a break. Not because I stopped loving or playing games but because I had become frustrated with the limits of the technology at the time to realize my vision.

    I decided to pursue my desire to create detailed worlds and tell sophisticated stories in film.

    I always said the moment I became interested in making games again was when I was going to come back.

    With the power of today’s computers and the reach of the internet I finally feel I have the tools to build the connected experience that I always dreamed of. A world that would be more satisfying and richer than any film I could work on.

    With films you tell stories but with games you create worlds.

    If you’ve played my games, you’ll know that’s what I love to do.

    I’m here to tell you that I have been working on something for just under a year, something that embraces everything that my past games stood for but takes it to the next level.

    I hope you’ll be as excited by it as I am.

    My new endeavor is still in its early stages but I invite you to take the journey with me.

    If you register below you’ll become an insider that will not only give you early access to the game’s website and forums, but you will also get the opportunity for rewards and privileges that no one else will get. It’s my way of showing how important your early involvement and support is.

    The full announcement will be at 10am Eastern Standard Time (UTC -5) on the 10th day of the 10th month of this year.

    My name is Chris Roberts.

    And if you would indulge me I would like to create a world for you.
    He is the King of the Space Combat Sim, so this has me very excited!

    I loved Wing Commander, but I'll play wait and see with this one. He made some of the few FMV games which didn't suck (they actually had GAMEPLAY, for one), but he also directed the awful Wing Commander theatrical film.

    Well the only bad thing he has ever done imo was a film. This isnt a film, its (almost definately) a space combat sim. He makes exceptional Space Combat Sims so I see no issue here. I am nothing but excited. Got my golden ticket and eagerly awaiting 10/10/10

    Wing Commander and Strike Commander are some of my favorite games from that era. Spent so much time playing them.

    Ohhhhh yes. It's been a while since I've been able to play a decent space combat/flight sim (cmon Lucasarts) so very amped for this.

    Just when I'm getting a bit disinterested in gaming this year, all this cool stuff comes along!

    Oh yay! If he announces a game that has the elements of his previous titles but with a good persistent online multiplayer...I'll preorder asap.

    p.s, X-Wing v.s Tie Fighter. I hear rumor that Lucasarts was recently hiring for "a space flight/combat sim" Praying it's true...

    The addition of Co-op campaign in Balance of Power made that game god tier.
