Reveal trailer for Star Citizen, the new game from the creator of Wing Commander

Here’s the debut trailer for Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts’ Star Citizen, which shows off those CryEngine 3-powered spacecraft in glorious motion.

Yesterday, we spoke to Roberts about his return to videogames after half a decade as a film executive, and his sizeable ambitions for the new project.

“Essentially, what I’m aiming to do is take Wing Commander, Privateer and Freelancer and put it all into one consistent universe,” Roberts tells us. “I wanted a universe that has a lot of possibilities, a lot of geopolitical conflict, but also a military campaign where you’re fighting on the frontlines”.
