Star Citizen begins its Ship Showdown, promises a roadmap update and new mission feature details this week


Fans of Star Citizen who have strong opinions about the game’s various spaceships can now argue over the matter in the game’s annual Ship Showdown community event.

As with previous events, there will be three phases where players make their case for their favorite vehicle’s inclusion on social media or the forums, then complete polls to determine the winner, which will be crowned on September 15th. Here’s hoping the meme choice of the Greycat PTV wins out.

In other Star Citizen news, the weekly announcement schedule is out, featuring a new roadmap update arriving tomorrow, the next Inside Star Citizen video promising information from the mission feature team, and another series of weekly community event details.

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 2022, it still lingers in an incomplete but playable alpha, having raised over $450M 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.
