Star Citizen, massively multiplayer persistent universe in which the player evolves in the Milky Way of the 30th century, 930 years after our era, governed by the UEE (United Empire of Earth), and Squadron 42, multi-chapter solo campaign in which the player enlisted in the UEE army, are the two parts of a video game adventure and space simulation edited and developed by Cloud Imperium Games (CIG), all under the direction of Chris Roberts, known for creating the Wing Commander, Wing Commander: Privateer, Starlancer and Freelancer games.
The game Star Citizen is funded in a participative way and is currently under development.
Currently, no release date has been announced.
It is possible to access the Alpha by financially assisting its development. Acquiring a starter pack is enough, the game requires no subscription. But who says Alpha, says bug, reset the progress in game, features not implemented, etc. The game is far from over, do not invest in the game if your only goal is to benefit from early access, but do it to support its development. You'll have plenty of time to play once it's finished.
The Squadron 42 single-player campaign is scheduled to be a trilogy, the first part of which is unofficially scheduled for late 2020, early 2021, although no date has actually been confirmed. Access to the campaign is closed, but it is possible to pre-order the game either by acquiring a Starterpack including Star Citizen and Squadron 42, or by acquiring the campaign individually.
