Post Star Citizen SP & MP Split into 2 products Reply with quote
Games going to be split into two games, the MMO-y sandbox Star Citizen and the singleplayer campaign Squadron 42.

Current backers will get both, everybody else pays for each---->

Quote:
It is simple, though. From February 14th, Squadron 42 and Star Citizen will be sold separately. They’ll be $45 each, but buying the other will only cost an extra $15. Folks who’ve already backed or otherwise bought The Game Formerly Known As Star Citizen will receive both.

Quote:
The package split does not change the fact that Star Citizen and Squadron 42 are part of the same game universe, or the fact that the games are functionally connected. You will access Squadron 42 through the same game client. And your performance in Squadron 42 will still have an impact on your career in the persistent universe, whether you buy both segments together or if you choose to add one further down the line. Finally, you will receive access to Star Citizen’s Arena Commander with the ‘Squadron 42′ pledge to practice your flying skills

It has always been two separate things, Star Citizen is the MMO and Squadron 42 the single player game. Early backers got into both. New customers will have to buy both if interested in both. A bit of none news really.

@Freedom I don't have an issue with it BUT the game was never 2 parts it was one product with a linked SP campaign and an MMO element, now they have split it into 2, I guess to reel in the single players who have no interest in the MMO aspect.

Squadron 42 was always penned for the initial release with the mmo following close behind, sort of a single player space cock tease simulator getting your juices flowing for the real thing (mmo element) It has never been 2 separate products until now.

I suppose your right. Squadron 42 was the original concept. Somewhere along the line an MMO Star Citizen was born I think when they realised they hit the mother lode of what gamers really want i.e. a space ship MMO done properly.
