Landing On A Planet In Star Citizen Looks Spectacular

I don’t know if I should be as excited as the crowd in attendance, but this new demo footage does look impressive. Regardless of whether or not the game will ever get finished, it’s a good glimpse into the potential of future sci-fi titles.

Listen to those cheers as the Freelancer spaceship burns on entry to the planet's atmosphere, and as we see it from the multiple viewpoints of the players inside. Then follow one player into the spaceport of Levski for the first time - a shady underbelly of a town selling contraband goods - as they walk up to a window and see the other player hovering the Freelancer outside, waving from the cockpit. Multiplayer space exploration in all its glory - take that No Man's Sky.
