Star Citizen Now Selling Nonexistent In-Game Properties

If you thought micro-transactions couldn't get any stranger, we suggest you hold on to your seat, as Cloud Imperium Games has opened a new chapter in the book that is paid content. Those looking to pre-purchase a plot of land on the planet with a nice view of the local neutron star, or any other approved planet, can do so now for a mere $50.

This new form of monetization dubbed "Land Claim Licenses" offers gamers two plot sizes they can choose from; a plot with an area of four square kilometers, and one that comes in at eight square kilometers for $100. The developer noted that even though this feature is not implemented yet, it gives those willing to part with their money a chance to 'pre-order' a piece of land they are interested in.
