Star Citizen gets $27,000 add-on pack

Star Citizen gets $27,000 add-on pack”

Star Citizen is an upcoming space exploration game that focuses on multiplayer gameplay, RPG missions and exploring the vast space.

The Legatus Pack content page wasn't even available for viewing if you hadn't already spent $1,000 in Star Citizen. Links to the page now return a 404 error message. Obviously this pack is not meant for the ordinary PC gamer but when everyone is bashing Battlefield and Call of Duty for their loot boxes, I think it's justified to also criticize an unfinished game that is heavily focusing on making more money by implementing the free-to-play model of other games (independently selling ships and packs). To make things even crazier, the developers who are in charge of Star Citizen raised $35 million only in 2017!

Facepalm: Despite raising almost $200 million to date, Star Citizen developer Roberts Space Industries continues to sell ships, virtual plots of land and other intangible goods - many of which can not be accessed yet - at exorbitant prices.

"Putting aside the marketing value of this move, purchases like this can bestow special status on buyers within Star Citizen's community, as well as offering extreme shortcuts to a more advanced role within the game itself".

To be honest, this is not too absurd as there have been multiple fans, who have spent a solid sum of money on the game. Although, that is not necessary since we already know everything that $27,000 gets you in Star Citizen.

Some ships are still being kept tightly locked down in order to preserve their rarity, such as the Bengal, however 117 ships are included within the Legatus Pack, alongside 163 miscellaneous items such as upgrades and skins.
