Cloud Imperium Games (CIG), developer of Star Citizen and Squadron 42, is a new kind of independent studio dedicated to delivering AAA games outside the established publisher system. Founded in 2012 by renowned game developer Chris Roberts, CIG is shifting the paradigm of game development towards a more inclusive process, offering its global community an unprecedented level of visibility and engagement by granting ongoing access to a product in active development.
The galaxy’s premier annual aerospace event, the Intergalactic Aerospace Expo (IAE), returns from Nov. 18-30 in Star Citizen! The IAE celebrates the ever-expanding number of ships available in Star Citizen, replicating the look and feel of real-world conventions in-game for an immersive experience. Players will be able to explore the digital event as they would any convention, from strolling through fully interactive expo halls and seeing the latest ships on display each day in incredible detail, to meeting up with friends to explore and partake in exciting activities, or chance encounters with strangers that launch new friendships. No matter what career, or side of the law, players choose to pursue in-game, IAE is a time for all Citizens to come together to celebrate one thing they all love – spaceships!
Being sponsored by Drake Interplanetary for the first time, IAE 2952 will showcase ships from the top manufacturers across the ‘verse, with new ships on display each day on the show floor at New Babbage, microTech. Players can look forward to several new reveals during the event, starting with the Drake Corsair making its in-game, flyable debut. In addition to new reveals, players can freely test-fly more than 120 ships during the event. This year’s IAE takes place during troubling times in the ‘verse as the XenoThreat has been detected within Stanton, making it imperative that pilots have access to the latest tech and hardware available to protect themselves.
Featuring free access to over 120 ships through Nov. 30 and new content on the horizon, there’s never been a better time to play Star Citizen!
