You Can Buy Star Citizen Land Now That Doesn’t Technically Exist Yet, For Up To $100
It’s been a whole 5 years since Star Citizen was announced and dedicated fans of the space flight title continue to wait for the game to become something a bit more cohesive than its limited alpha build. Even now, Roberts Space Industries continues to plug away at the ever growing and ambitious title and in the process is coming up with new ways to generate revenue to continue their progress. The latest idea is a Star Citizen land rush, where players now have a chance to purchase plots of land.
The sale will begin under their Kickstarter with claims running at $50 for a 4×4 km parcel of land, or $100 for an 8×8 km parcel estate. Eventually, backers will also be able to purchase land with in-game currency – so if you don’t want to drop that much real money on land, you’ll need to be patient a while longer. Unfortunately there is a small problem with the land rush. Players can’t go and scout the lands that they want because they aren’t really there yet. Much of the land on planets, moons, and asteroids are for sale for purchase but again, the game completed yet making those scout-able areas non-existent.
It might not be the land rushes of 1891, and space is definitely not Oklahoma, but there’s something to be said for staking a claim to land to call your own. It’s an interesting idea, and one many fans will find enjoyable. The question now becomes, will it be worth it? What can be done on the parcels on land? Let us know your thoughts on the Star Citizen land rush and more in the comments section below.
