Cloud Imperium has unsurprisingly been making a lot of hay about this weekend’s CitizenCon event for Star Citizen and Squadron 42, but it looks like a leak may have sprung before the event even kicks off, assuming the video is even meant to debut at the showcase.
One YouTuber has uploaded the nine minute-long clip (and plastered music all over it because the original footage is silent), which showcases several vista shots, some NPC chatter, and a bit of ship-based combat against some Vanduul foes. It’s arguably spoiler-y even if its silent nature doesn’t betray any major story beats, but those who don’t mind one way or the other can click the link above, assuming the footage hasn’t been struck down.
The video in question has sparked plenty of discussion, debate, and skepticism among Star Citizen fans. Remarks on one Reddit thread and comments in a related YouTube video suggest that the footage isn’t meant for CitizenCon but is from an internal dev video from last year, while the same SC subreddit has sparked a conversation about leak policies and leaks in general. In any case, there’s only a day left to wait and see what actually comes out of the event.
