By   /   Aug 25, 2014

Star Citizen, since revealing its new features at Gamescom has been getting a lot of attention from the gamers and within one week of time, it has managed to get 2 more millions in crowd funding.

Just like before, both of these millions bring a couple of new features to the game – the 51,000,000 mark achieved brings us Web-based Known Universe Map, while the 52 million mark adds BB-12, a Jet Pack which is described as:

The BB-12 is a brand new Manned Maneuvering Unit from Azure Sky Aero. Whether you are engaging in precision mining operations or delicate salvage retrieval, the BB-12 is capable of EVA operation for six uninterrupted hours.

This new model features twenty-four precision nozzle thrusters and two redesigned heavy-duty tanks of gaseous nitrogen propellant, capable of being hot-swapped while on the drift or refueled back on the ship. With the BB-12, Azure Sky has once again cemented their place as the premier EVA tech provider.

At Gamescom, Chris Roberts revealed couple of new features of the game, which are increasing the fans interest in the title even more.

One of those features is first person shooting and other is racing and both of these features will certainly add a new flavor to Star Citizen.

How many days do you think it will take for Star Citizen to reach $53 Million milestone?
