In-development PC space sim Star Citizen continues to grow in crowdfunding, today surpassing the $50 million mark thanks to recent sales of new ships.
$51,075,243 has been generated from 525,131 backers, according to the Roberts Space Industries website
. The new crowdfunding amount has now solidified alien languages for Star Citizen, the latest stretch goal from developer Cloud Imperium Games.
Cloud Imperium Games boss Chris Roberts has yet to note the milestone, nor offer a new stretch goal, but it follows a big week for Star Citizen in which two new modes were announced
: Vandal Swarm co-op dogfighting and Murray Cup racing. Money came in from the sale of new Constellation class ships
, which can be operated by multiple players. The cheapest of these, the Taurus, costs $150.
