Check out the brand-new Squadron 42 video starring Mark Hamill

    
53

As teased last week, IGN has a new Squadron 42 trailer up today straight from CIG itself. Clocking in at two minutes, the video features in-game footage of the player character’s first encounter with Mark Hamill’s character. Hamill’s gruff mocapped version may look a little like a grumpy cross between Luke Skywalker and Brad Pitt, but we doubt anyone’s complaining!

Tomorrow, the studio is planning a holiday special edition of its regular weekly Star Citizen video, this one streamed on Twitch and loaded with news on the long-delayed S42 game that IGN declares an “eagerly anticipated space combat spin-off.”

Been sitting here thinking about how much of a boondoggle Star Citizen is turning into with the record-breaking crowdfunding and the complete lack of demonstrable progress and it seems to me that the one feature the game needs is a fecking project manager who can put the screws to the developers a little bit and start meeting some deadlines.

Looked great, but I imagine that costed a pretty penny

Oh well, they’ll just sell a bunch of still-not-done land plots for some still-not-done planet in a still-not-done planetary system of their still-not-done game

It really does look like Mark Hamill and Brad Pitt had a baby.

Mark a long time friend of Chris Roberts. I am glad they still work together after all these years.

I haven’t been following Squadron 42 closely… is Squadron 42 it’s own game you buy? I thought it was integrated as part of the main game?

It was but then it was split off as it’s own game. Those of us who backed SC before the split still get it all.

Looks great. The conversation solution is very cool imo. As a veteran WC, SC gamer I feel that the vibe is spot on.

I thought this was crap. Ultra corny but in a crap way, even for CR, and trying way too hard to do the gruff, tough military man thing.

Hopefully today’s stream shows some interesting gameplay that makes up for it.

Mark Hamill is just doing what they ask of him though. He’s a *very good* voice actor used in a great many things. The voice itself sounds find, it’s just what they’re having him say and do, so maybe that’s what you mean too.
