Trident Star Citizen Division
Star Citizen is an upcoming space trading and combat simulator video game for PC. Star Citizen will consist of two main elements: a persistent world massively multiplayer online game mixing elements of first person space combat and interstellar trade (known as Star Citizen) and a branching single-player and drop-in co-operative multiplayer campaign (known as Squadron 42).
Both Star Citizen and Squadron 42 are set in a 30th-century Milky Way centered around the fictional UEE (United Empire of Earth), an analogue of the late Roman Empire. A central theme of the game is citizenship (or lack thereof) in the UEE, which must be earned through player actions (such as completing a period of military service). It is anticipated that Citizens will enjoy certain in game benefits, for example paying a reduced tax rate or having easier access to interspecies trade, but the exact details are yet to be determined.
A strong focus will be placed on player interaction, with player behaviour influencing and being influenced by a dynamic economy system.
Star Citizen is currently being developed by Chris Roberts's Cloud Imperium Games, founded in 2011.
Trident has committed to operating a Star Citizen squadron (clan) and as such we have created a division within our community for people who are awaiting the game. The division is operated by its director SinOmega with support and oversight of the Council.
