Star Citizen has offered a couple of intriguing peeks into its world and its process with a couple of updates. In one update we got a look at how one of the game’s artists concepts ship weapons, and in another we got a look at an upcoming Star Marine map from both a mechanical and lore perspective.
The latest Star Citizen Live stream introduces viewers to Aleksandras Akstinas of the weapon concept team, who provided a look at how he makes the various ship weapons seen in-game while answering player questions. The stream is a lengthy one, but provides an intriguing look at how weapons are concepted using a wide selection of purchased image galleries to both inspire drawing or as pieces that are cropped, stretched, and adjusted into basic weapon design ideas.
Star Citizen is also launching a new series of updates called the Traveler’s Guide to the Galaxy, with the premiere update focused on The Good Doctor Star Marine map. This facility, billed as a place of rehabilitation and removal of tech dependency, reportedly holds a more sinister purpose which can be pieced together if players look around. For those who’d rather use the map to shoot each other in, there are plenty of opportunities for that as well, as The Good Doctor is described as a place for close quarters combat… provided you don’t get lost in the labyrinth of rooms, of course.
