Star Citizen's persistent universe will be separate to single-player

Roberts Space Industries has updated the world on Star Citizen's purchase options, telling gamers that they can opt into the single-player content exclusively. This means you can pay $45 for the Squadron 42 campaign, or the core Star Citizen experience.

The core Star Citizen experience is a unique beast, as it's an MMO-like component - completely separate to Squadron 42, the single-player portion. But what if you've spent $45 on the MMO-based side of the game, and want to get in on the single-player campaign in the form of Squadron 42? That's fine, you can spend another $15 and receive the other side of Star Citizen.

For a total of $60, you're getting a damn lot of game, but RSI reiterates that these are two separate packages, that can be enjoyed on their own, or together for $60. RSI said: "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".
