Star Citizen for mac n aims to combine multiple video game genres, including space trading and combat simulator and first-person shooter elements, in a massively multiplayer online game.
Alluding to Star Citizen’s online universe, Chris Roberts highlights the importance of player-driven content: “It’s like a sandbox for everybody, and occasionally you’ll sprinkle in little bits of scripted content to give a bit of character, but you’re letting a lot of the players generate the intrigue and the dram The economy system is described as being NPC-driven, however, with players slowly taking over to ensure changes in game population do not disrupt the economy.
Roberts emphasizes his focus on immersion: “The changes in the technology in the industry will allow me to do a much more immersive experience. [.Star Citizen for mac..] It’s all about that suspension of disbelief.”
Star Citizen’s space combat utilizes a Newtonian physics model to create tactical choices for the player] Players will complete objectives to gain currency used to buy, repair and upgrade their ships or to purchase items used in trade.
The game’s first-person shooter mechanics are reported to be inspired by games such as Rainbow Six, ARMA, Counter-Strike and Killzone.[
Arena Commander is the second playable alpha component of Star Citizen. It is an in-fiction space combat simulator allowing players to playtest ship combat against other players or AI opponents. It features a highly detailed ship flight model, simulating space flight using the mass of the ship and location and force of the thrusters. Other features include realistic application of g-force on the pilot and a high level of visual fidelity. Racing and cooperative game modes were added in an update. Of note is the ability to “decouple” ships from the axis of travel to gain a combat advantage.
Star Citizen for mac will be the fourth module available to play. Star Marine will feature first-person-shooter gameplay, available as a simulation, similar to Arena Commander. It will initially feature two main gamemodes: the first mode will be a 16-player match between Marines and Outlaws, set on an abandoned space station, the “Gold Horizon Platform”. The first person shooter mechanics are designed to be relatively realistic with armor levels, weapon stances and stamina effects manifesting as heavy breathing. The second mode was to be a zero gravity arena. This arena is influenced by the descriptions of “Battle School” combat in Orson Scott Card’s book Ender’s Game, featuring a large glass sphere with floating obstacles. Opposing teams aim to capture the others gate/entrance using nonlethal pistols to shoot enemy players and using a “pulling beam” to aid moving around the three dimensional zero gravity arena. The floating obstacles can be used as both cover and traction points for player movement. However it has been replaced by 32 player Sata Ball which is a sport within the fiction which will also use a zero gravity arena.
