creator Chris Roberts
has penned a new dev blog announcing Cloud Imperium's
cooperation with fellow indie outfit Warhorse. Warhorse is currently building a single-player RPG called Kingdom Come: Deliverance
that's set in medieval Europe, and Roberts was so impressed with the project that he both backed it himself and sought to exchange ideas with its developers.
Both Star Citizen
and Kingdom Come
are built on the CryEngine, and Roberts says both dev teams will be collaborating going forward. "Star Citizen
doesn't need peasants and knights," he explained, "but it does need a robust character creation system for the persistent universe. And that technology is exactly what Warhorse is building for the CryEngine.
