For the last month or so, the first 1000 or so backers of Star Citizen have been playing around with the alpha 2.0 of the game. Alpha 2.0 provides some big upgrades on the game, fixing countless problems, with improved animations, smoother performance and more.



The video above was shown off at the CitizenCon 2015 presentation last month, where we can see that the ship exploration is improved, and the graphics look much smoother, too. There seems to be some improved lighting and environmental effects, which I'm incredibly excited over. This is a game for the PC, something that simply couldn't be done at this scale on the consoles.


At four minutes into the video, Quantum Drive gets activated, and it gave me goosebumps. Awesome.
