Star Citizen clarifies the persistent universe and Squadron 42 split

Right in half.

Are you wondering about how the split between Star Citizen and Squadron 42 will affect your purchase of the game? The short answer is “it probably won’t at all.” Existing backers are still getting both; it’s only new purchases that will have a split between the persistent universe and the single-player experience. But if you aren’t a backer or you still have some questions about the fine details, a recent update from the development team clarifies exactly what’s going on with the split. The short version is that the games are still linked, but after the 14th you’ll need to buy into them separately.

Purchasing either individually will run you $45, while purchasing the other one later as an add-on will run you $15. Both are also accessed through the same client and are linked together, and even players who only purchase Squadron 42 will have access to the game’s arena commander module. The plan is to make more parts of the game accessible in bits and pieces from here on out. If you’re already riding the hype train and haven’t yet jumped on board for the game, though, you should act quickly, as you can still get the package deal for both parts of the game if you buy in by February 14th.

annoyedbadger $45 for either a AAA single player campaign or $45 for a AAA open universe sandbox
$15 for the one you don’t pick, so $60 in total. Still quite a steal if you ask me. Since they’re both AAA releases, I would’ve assumed $60 each.

I’ll repeat what I said for Daybreak. I only consider purchasing completed games. Spit it into as many pieces as you like, I won’t even be considering a purchase till it’s completed. 

I’m getting really fatigued with hearing about games years out and years later still not completed. I know games have always had lengthy development periods, but we didn’t used to hear much about them until they appeared on store shelves, and I liked it that way. If I hear about / read about a game that sounds interesting, I want to play it, not hear ‘sorry, check back in 5 years…maybe’

Well if you don’t mind the bugs and other issues, then I would say give it a try.
They extended the free flight week until the 14th as well for anyone who don’t have a game pack yet so they can try it out and see for themselves.

That may so be, but why do people always assume instead of try to understand?
Is it really too much to ask of people to take two minutes to actually read and understand what is being said instead of just jumping to conclusions, thinking they know better, and then go about making it sound s if we are somehow being cheated?
Reading comprehension seems to be a thing of the past for allot of people these days, heck even reading seems to be something people don’t want to do much these days.
It seems(at least to me) that many just want to think they know and then blabber out some incomprehensible and nonsensical stuff about something they clearly know nothing about and then act all superior when corrected.

GoJammit Telos_ It is still a math thing for me, if one is very interested in this project, they might as well pay for the base package and get both games at this juncture.
