This being for backers who have spent upwards of $1,000 USD or more, giving them the opportunity to attend a private Aegus VIP Event - a catered dinner and Q&A with Chris Roberts and other key Star Citizen
developers. For around $275 USD per ticket. A special Aegis Announcement
was also teased. Which, as you can probably guess, was a new ship for sale.
The Aegis Nautilus Solstice Limited Edition - a tactical mine-layer with "fully integrated mine-deployment, sweeping, and disarming capabilities". Valued at $675 USD.
As per this Resetera thread
, which provided details on the VIP event - mine mechanics and features aren't in the game yet. And this ship joins a growing list of vessels still to be implemented.
Star Citizen, which continues to look and sound impressive even in its current Alpha state, is still a long way off from release. Since launching its Kickstarter campaign in 2012, Star Citizen has raised over $230 million in crowdfunding.
