Studio Cloud Imperium Games has begun testing the beta version 3.18 of Star Citizen, and has released new videos revealing what awaits the players in the next version, 3.19, which is scheduled for the end of the year.
The main innovation should be a major overhaul of the ore mining industry. They want to make it more exciting, in particular, by permitting "manual" mining, not only in special caves.
Iron, copper, aluminum, genonid, and others will be added to the game. Some of them may only be found on certain planets, although others may be utilized for various purposes.
The developers describe the creation of the landscape, as well as determining the quality of the game in the second video.
Star Citizen has yet to have a fixed release date, although its crowdfunding campaign has already established a new high. Over $550 million has been raised for the development of the game, and the number of registered accounts has exceeded 4.4 million, according to the game's creator Chris Roberts in October 2022. Although, only 1.7 million of them paid for the game.
