Star Citizen tops one million accounts, rewards its community
“If there was ever a milestone that deserved a letter to the community it was this,” Chris Roberts posted. “When I first started on this adventure I would have never dreamed that we would ever this many people and this much support in building Star Citizen. It’s amazing to have a community and team that believe so fervently in what is being built… Say it loud: PC games are back, space combat games are back… we are making Star Citizen possible!”
To reward the community for its participation and support, the studio is eliminating paid passes for alpha access, allowing any and all backers to jump into pre-release modules as they come out. Those who had purchased an alpha access package or Arena Commander pass will also receive in-game currency as a thank-you.
