Star Citizen answers questions about its $750 ship


You’ll have to forgive us, but we are still recovering from the news that Star Citizen is selling a new virtual spaceship for a whopping $750 (and that’s not to mention some of its older ships that have been priced well into the thousands). It’s a move that brings up a lot of questions, including: Who would buy this? What does it have to justify that cost? Is there a ceiling on how expensive MMO macrotransactions can get?

With all of the questions come answers — well, some answers, at least. RSI posted the first part of a Q&A about the Polaris, and while the studio doesn’t address its reasoning behind the price, it does go into depth about what the Polaris has to offer for buyers.

According to the team, “The Polaris has the capacity to perform search and rescue operations, light strike missions, and general security patrols. The Polaris includes the facilities to repair, rearm and refuel a single fighter, light bomber, or support ship.” Sure, but does it have the ability to refill your empty wallet?

Snark and expensive spaceships aside, Star Citizen also showed off some of the tech behind its procedural planets. Take a tour of one after the break!
