Crowdsourced funding to the tune of $137 million
They can’t stop bolting bits onto this epic space sim, a game that already lets you fight, trade, explore, then land on a planet’s surface for a wander. The first taster was 2013’s Hangar Module, which let players walk around marvelling at parked ships in first-person, and next came space combat mode Arena Commander, focusing on battling and racing. Later we’ll see 16-player infantry deathmatch and the zero-g sport of Sata Ball in Star Marine. But that’s all a precursor to Squadron 42, a sprawling drop-in co-op campaign featuring the talents of Mark Hamill, Mark Strong, and Gary Oldman.
