Star Citizen

Star Citizen is the epic Space Opera Kickstarter game from Chris Roberts, the same guy behind the classic Wing Commander and Privateer games.  At over 70 million dollars raised, it is safe to say this is a Triple A funded game.

Planned features for this custom Crytek engine game includes everything from a single player campaign mode to a robust multi-player space sim that features an FPS component.  Quite the undertaking.  It's also an interesting ride for early backers, who are able to see the game develop and gain early access to alpha and beta builds.

It's been a few months since I checked out the latest build.  I wanted to see if VR support was in place yet, and what it looked like.  I discovered that full support for the Oculus Rift is not officially yet in place, but I can state that the game is looking more and more polished as time goes on.  This should be loads of fun when it is completed.
