Star Citizen Blazes Past $23 Million
It was newsworthy enough when, last week, Chris Roberts’ Star Citizen reached its $22 million crowdfunding milestone, the stretch goal for which involved face-capturing technology that should improve the quality and experience of in-game cutscenes and conversations.

Well, the crowdfunding machine that is Star Citizen isn’t content to rest, and this week reached its $23 million milestone. This milestone will see another ship — the Xi’an Scout (Khartu-al) — added to the game, and backers can expect to find a model thereof added to their hangars within the next few weeks.
Cloud Imperium Games have also announced the $25 million stretch goal: a bigger, better alpha test with a more global reach.
