New Squadron 42 Info

Squadron 42 is shaping up really well. (The cast has been set but they aren't announcing it yet. - Ed.) It has a really big story arc which will be split into a trilogy.

Episode 1 releases this year and has around 70 Wing Commander missions.

Formulated differently that Wing Commander. Here you can fly a space mission, land get out, get into a firefight, chase a pirate, and take off to get into a battle. That is one mission in SQ42 whereas in Wing Commander that would be 3-4 missions.

SQ42 Episode 1 will be about 20 missions, 20 hours of gameplay.

Episode 2 is what goes on behind enemy lines. Everyone who backed up to 6mil gets for free. (The Blastr leak a while back was the plot to this episode, Chris asked them not to publish that bit but apparently they forgot. - Ed.)

Episode 2 is (likely) 2016.

Episode 3 is 2017 (Actually Chris said be playing for the next couple of years, 2017 is a maybe. -Ed.)

Each episode is the equivalent of a huge CoD campaign

They're going to be shooting through the end of June.

(Citizen Star News) - by Citizen Ed - 2015-03-18 - Blastr.com published an interview with Chris Roberts with more details of Squadron 42's basic plot and characters.


Squadron 42 is Star Citizen's sister game: Solo/Co-op Space-Sim/RPG in the style of Wing Commander, often compared to the more recent Mass Effect.
