Star Citizen shows off new and improved first-person gunplay in 60fps video

Star Citizen

Star Citizen’s FPS gameplay keeps improving, just as development keeps rolling on for the massively ambitious space sim, and it appears it’s getting very close to a standard Cloud Imperium Games can be happy with.

Our list of the best space games was made for projects like Star Citizen. 

It seems like the developers are happy with this progress too, as they’ve released a 60fps gameplay video showing off the in-game shooting.

The five-minute video takes us on a shooty tour ofPort Olisar, as the person behind the controls takes pot shots at glass bottles and other debris, sending them flying across the room.

Once they’re bored of shooting inanimate objects, it’s on to shopkeepers and eventually other goons with guns, each of them taking cover and returning fire on the player.

The video certainly shows the potential of the on-foot gameplay, and I can already think of some brilliant scenarios the developers could create with it in Squadron 42 – imagine blowing a hole in a capital ship’s hull and ejecting, floating inside the ship to continue the battle with your rifle.

This is without even considering the sort of emergent fun you could have when griefing other players in the persistent universe.

Unfortunately I can’t embed the video, but you can head to the Roberts Space Industries site and check it out yourself.
