Mark Hamill’s Squadron 42 Character Highlighted in Star Citizen Video (VIDEO)
In celebration of Star Wars Day on May 4th, Cloud Imperium Games released new video content to eager fans everywhere, highlighting one of the lead characters of Star Citizen’s Single Player Mode, Squadron 42. That character is none other than Lt. Commander Steve “Old Man” Colton, played by Star Wars veteran Mark Hamill, and in the latest video release by developers, we get a chance to see Hamill performing the motion-capture work to bring his character to life. The video can be seen below (the clip of Hamill’s work can be seen at about 23:40 in the video):
This isn’t the first time fans have had a chance to see Hamill bringing this character to life. In a previous video release on Star Citizen’s YouTube channel, fans got a chance to see the iconic actor hard at work with game developers to breathe life into Old Man Colton’s character with all the finesse and energy that fans have loved in his work on the set of Star Wars. Now, with the promise that Star Citizen Alpha 3.0 will be the “most ambitious game ever”, and the latest peek into this character in the game’s solo-campaign, anxious fans are definitely in for a treat. Pledges are still open for the title, so gamers who choose to donate towards its production should definitely head over to the official website to donate towards the game and “answer the call”.
Pulling in over $148.5 million, Star Citizen has rocketed to the forefront as the most successful crowdfunding game in history, which is no surprise. Not only has Hamill made waves as the indomitable Lt. Commander Colton, he’s joined by an all-star cast including Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight), Andy Serkis (The Lord of the Rings), Gillian Anderson (The X-Files), Ben Mendelsohn (Bloodline), and Mark Strong (Kingsman).
