Cloud Imperium Games Corporation continues to roll out the big announcements concerning its upcoming space epic, Star Citizen, including a cast of voice actors that include the likes of Gary Oldman, Mark Hamil, Gillian Anderson and Andy Serkis, just to name a few.
So what do Sirius Black, Luke Skywalker, Dana Scully and Gollum have in common? Why, they're all in Chris Roberts' Star Citizen, of course. Those actors listed above are just the tip of the iceberg for the game, however, with the full cast including the likes of:
Yeah, that's a pretty stacked cast, which makes already high expectations for Star Citizen skyrocket even further into the stratosphere.
The full announcement was made during a CitizenCon 2015 stream over the weekend, but you can check out the trailer that's got everybody talking below.
Every great Sci-Fi epic has a rousing speech like the one above plugged in at one point or another and, yep, Star Citizen's take on that trope is pitch-perfect. I don't know about you folks, but I'm ready to straight-up trounce some alien scum. And we'll all be given that chance come 2016.
Given recent negative developments for various crowd-funded games, it's nice to be reminded what it looks like when a developer seems to be handling their business the right way. A lot of folks have questioned why a Kickstarter campaign, for instance, doesn't end when a project's goal is met. Star Citizen cleared $2 million when its funding drive drew to a close, quite a hefty chunk of change above and beyond its original $500,000 goal. Well, now you're seeing where all of those extra resources are going. The above trailer looks great and a cast like that don't come cheap, but it will all hopefully come together in a big way once Star Citizen finally launches next year.
Additional videos were also unveiled during this weekend's CitizenCon event, including a brief look behind the scenes at the above voice cast doing their job in full mocap gear.
