I'm guessing a few people know about this game but here's a heads up for people who don't.

Chris Roberts (who coincidentally is Asheh's current Bosses brother)
who you may or may not have heard of worked on several games including : Wing commander and its sequels and spinoffs, Star lancer and even a bit of freelancer.
now hes back and he wants to make a proper space game again, this game will have singleplayer and multiplayer aspects and as far as I can tell function kind of link a FTP mmo. there will also be first person elements but the primary game play will be more akin to freelancer/Wing commander.
now the game is 100% going to get made as hes got crazy mad funding powers, there's still a few days of funding left on both kickstarter and direct on his site if anyone's interested. there's also lots of info on the site and KS page, so worth a read if you are into space games. I've personally funded it because I think it will be mega epic.

From the site:
  • A rich universe focused on epic space adventure, trading and dogfighting in first person.
  • Single Player – Offline or Online
    (Drop in / Drop out co-op play)
  • Persistent Universe (hosted by US)
  • Mod-able multiplayer (hosted by YOU)
  • No Subscriptions
  • No Pay to Win

With the way the X3 game series has been going, this looks too good to be true!

I actually hated X3, it looked pretty but felt soulless

which version did you play? i have only ever really played x3:ap with and without mods and had alot of fun, but it was a bit lonely with a total lack of multiplayer, still pretty cool to go from being afraid of a couple small pirate ships, to wiping out entire sectors full of pirates with ease :D knowing how hard ya worked to get there

sure it had its issues, but for the patient and dedicated players there was alot of fun to be had once you learnt the crazy amount of stuff needed to play it well

last time i looked at the new X3 game, it was basically mass effect 2 without the awesome RPG elements, one ship, one crew, instead of being able to pick from among hundreds of unique types of ship.. you get to control drones :P not even your mothership.. it just sounds like so many steps backwards to me

Star Citizen however looks like all the right steps in all the right directions, almost scarily too good to be true ya know? i really hope it happens and is as good as it looks & sounds, definately something i could spend alot of time playing

I didn't like x3 either. I played through the tutorial and just.. I couldn't play anymore. It's a bit too realistic in that the only feasible way was to use time bending mechanics to move around places and combat with 1 ship would take 10 minutes. Even playing the game at 5x speed for traveling, I could still just stare at the screen for minutes waiting to get to a warp gate or station.

Wow, I didn't even know privateer 2 was a wing commander game. I never got into wing commander games myself but I really loved playing privateer 2 to the point that i downloaded a cpu derper to lower my clockspeed and such to play it again, it didn't work unfortunately but that just shows you how much I wanted to play it again. So if this game is like that I am in. Freelancer I liked too but as a community DTE didn't get that into it i think, and it seemed more like a know-what-to-do-already/win game. I'm surprised all were done by the same guy.

Didn't have the dosh but they seemed to do well without me. Definately a game I can see myself playing in the future though.
