Star Citizen Single-Player Trailer Shows A Lot Of Celebrities

Has a video game ever featured this many celebrities?


Star Citizen's crowdfunding effort has been immensely successful. By the latest count, it's brought in more than $195 million. Some of that money has gone toward paying big-name actors to appear in the game's Squadron 42 single-player mode. And now, developer Cloud Imperium Games has released an impressive new trailer showing many of the big names who are lending their likenesses and voices to the game.

The trailer, which was released at the Star Citizen fan event CitizenCon, shows celebrities like Gillian Anderson, Mark Hamill, Gary Oldman, Mark Strong, Henry Cavill, John Rhys Davies, Liam Cunningham, and Ben Mendelsohn. We don't know for sure, but this appears to be one of the most celebrity-filled video games ever. Check out the trailer below.

The trailer comes not long after Cloud Imperium Games shared more details on Star Citizen's new Alpha 3.3 update. It adds a new face-scanning Face over IP feature, as well as more ships, weapons, enemy characters, and lots more. Check out GameSpot's interview with the developer here to learn more.

Squadron 42, which bills itself as a "cinematic single-player adventure," sees you playing as a rookie combat pilot. Along the way, you'll come into contact with the characters played by all the celebrities in the trailer above.

Pledging $45 gets you instant access to the Arena Commander dogfighting/racing mode and the first-person shooter mode Star Marine. These modes, and Squadron 42, like Star Citizen, remain in active development with no official release date announced as of yet.
