The Highlights of Star Citizen
A demo of Star Citizen was showcased at GamesCom 2016. From what we gather is the elements in the game are all “real” There are no faked elements in terms of backdrops and levels to represent certain situations. Example would be taking an elevator down a building. The elevator would physically traverse all the floors. This is something that really does not happen in traditional video games.
The universe in Star Citizen is also persistent. All players can interact with each other and actions of one character are experienced by all the players. The graphics in the game are stunning as is the nature of CryEngine. All features of the game engine are present in this simulation game.
Star Citizen is about you the player interacting with his surroundings in a dynamic economy system. The player will expect to trade on various commodities and goods. He will be expected to do a little of mining and interacting with game elements and other players. There will also be plenty of combat in the game as not everyone is as docile as you. There is also a drop-in co-operative multiplayer campaign titled Squadron 42.
The gameplay will be directed by the player actions with a few scripted elements to create control on what happens in the overall universe. The game has not been released yet.
