A new game is in development for the Star Citizen universe called Squadron 42, and its latest CG trailer makes me wish that the project was a movie and not a video game. I say this due to the fact that the game’s cast reads more like a Summer Blockbuster movie than a video game, because it features Mark Hamill, Gary Oldman, Gillian Anderson, Mark Strong, Rhona Mitra, and Ben Mendelsohn as main characters in the game.
Having those caliber of names attached to this project is huge, but what’s even more impressive is the fact that they’ve all been rendered in game with near perfect recreations of their real life profiles. I mean this trailer could serve as a pitch for a fully CGI Star Citizen movie, and producers would bite, that’s how lifelike the visuals look, and how authentic the performances come off. I’ve never played a single Star Citizen game, yet I’d dive head first into Squadron 42 just to see more of its cutscenes play out.
Who knows if the game will be any good, but I can tell you that it will at least have some of the best looking and acted video game cutscenes of all-time thanks to its A-list cast and visuals. You can check out more details for Squadron 42 over on the official Star Citizen website.
