Star Citizen grants a close look at the MISC Odyssey and other in-production vehicles in latest video

This is never happening.

Not every ship in the world of Star Citizen has to be about combat. Sometimes you just want to board a big boat and explore the world. That’s where the MISC Odyssey comes into play; it’s a large exploration vessel that plans to offer a little bit of everything.

The newly introduced Odyssey was the subject of the latest Inside Star Citizen video, granting fans a closer look at the mammoth internet spaceship’s design and features. Capable of crewing six players, the Odyssey has plenty of stuff packed into its frame, with a sizeable cargo hold, an on-board medical bay, missile racks and remote-operated turrets, a hangar for smaller ships, a mining arm and tractor beam, and an on-board refinery that lets players process their freshly zapped space rocks into quantum and hydrogen fuel. The Odyssey is also currently in concept, though that is once more not stopping CIG from allowing the ship to be purchased.

The second half of the video rattles off several other vehicle-related features, offering progress reports on the Hull A and Hull C, equippable tractor beams, the Starfarer, the Vulture, the Merchantman, and the debut of a new fighter from RSI called the Scorpius.

Longtime MMORPG gamers will know that Star Citizen was originally Kickstarted for over $2M back in 2012 with a planned launch for 2014. As of 2021, it still lingers in an incomplete but playable alpha, having raised almost $400M from gamers over years of continuing crowdfunding and sales of in-game ships and other assets. It is currently the highest-crowdfunded video game ever and has endured both indefatigable loyalty from advocates and immense skepticism from critics. A co-developed single-player title, Squadron 42, has also been repeatedly delayed.
