Star Citizen: Squadron 42 gets a new trailer

CREDIT Cloud Imperium Games

Today was the day-one of Cloud Imperium Games' (CIG) once-a-year CitizenCon event, where it gave viewers and attendees a taste of what's to come with Alpha 3.3.0 - or sort of. Already used behind the scenes in games like Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Horizon: Zero Dawn, this will be one of the first consumer-facing implementations of the technology. They'll have you zooming around the galaxy in competitive multiplayer sessions. Instead, it will be showing up with an incremental patch.

KitGuru Says: While I can understand that the sheer ambition requires a lot of patience, the long development time has put me off from investing in the game.

The update also adds AI-helmed enemies to shoot in FPS sequences and improved AI during dogfighting. In case you missed it, here is the new star-studded trailer.

Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 with built-in LTE launching next month
And while Chromebooks are no longer complete paperweights without a web connection, it's still how you get the most out of one. It makes a nice Chromebook even better but with 5G just around the corner, it could be obsolete sooner than some anticipate.

Here's hoping though, that Squadron 42 ends up being a riveting space adventure when it's finally released at some point in the future, and that Star Citizen gets a release date sooner rather than later too. Object Container Streaming testing results have been great, and we've seen a marked increase in client average frame rates and memory use, with some players even seeing frame rates in the triple digits. Expect giant space ship dog fights, and more in this single-player spaceflight sim companion to Star Citizen.

That's what $195 million in raised funds gets you, I suppose. Your avatar will also mimic all your facial expressions so you can really let your crewmates know when they done goofed.
