Indie developer Cloud Imperium Games has maintained an open relationship with its fans of the upcoming virtual reality (VR) compatible space combat title Star Citizen. The title, which has enjoyed huge crowd-funding success, has kept its backers in the loop with constant updates on the project’s progress. This week that has included the release of new concept art for one of the title’s craft, the M50.
A total of 21 pieces of concept art can be seen below, with accompanying text explaining the origins of the design for the ship and more. “While the M50 is not made for fighting it excels at courier missions and racing,” the developer explains, talking of the ship. “Never a stranger to the Murray Cup the M50 is a dangerously fast ship with the ability to leave your opponents in the dust (space dust?) Beneath the speed and danger is a marvel of engineering, here is a sneak peak at how the M50 is being made.”
Star Citizen is currently in the testing stages of development, with project backers currently enjoying access to the title’s Hangar Module as well as an arena combat mode. Both modes already feature support for the Oculus Rift VR head-mounted display (HMD). VRFocus will continue to follow the title going forward, reporting back with any further updates.
