The story-driven component of Star Citizen, dubbed Squadron 42, was recently unveiled and it features a pretty impressive roster of talent lending their voices and likeness to the game. From Gary Oldman to Mark Hamill to Gillian Anderson, even motion capture veteran and the art-form's most (un)recognizable star Andy Serkis is involved. Using state of the art motion capture Squadron 42 looks to be a very 21st century version of what Cloud Imperium founder Chris Roberts aimed to achieve in the 90s with the Wing Commander series.
To showcase the cinematic look and feel of Squadron 42, is a scene with Gary Oldman's character Admiral Ernest Bishop giving a rousing speech worthy of swelling orchestral strings and military-style drumming.
Released alongside the video is a look behind the scenes where we get to see a lot of the actors talk about the process, and their genuine excitement for performance capture. Also, it serves to showcase that with Squadron 42, developer Cloud Imperium is definitely going all-out.
