Star Citizen Reveals the Massive Seraphim Station That Will Replace Port Olisar

Star Citizen Seraphim Station

Star Citizen is an ongoing project, which means that some of its historical assets are several years old. A big one is soon going to be replaced with something even bigger.

Port Olisar is a space station orbiting around Planet Crusader. It's also an extremely well-known location for Star Citizen fans, as it was the very first spawn point implemented in the game when the persistent universe opened with version 2.0. 

While beloved by many, it's also old and updated, on top of being too small to contain all the gameplay features a space station requires today. For instance, it has no hospital or cargo sector. Today, Cloud Imperium Games released a new video showing Port Olisar's successor, Seraphim Station.

It's four-to-five times bigger than its predecessor, and comes with all the amenities required to support all current gameplay loops, on top of room for expansion. It will be implemented soon with version Alpha 3.20.

You can see what it looks like in the video below.

In the meanwhile, Star Citizen's growing crowdfunding campaign continues to make progress and the overall tally just passed  $593 million ($593,538,226 at the moment of this writing) pledged from backers.

The number of registered users has also almost reached 4.7 million and it's now at 4,682,215, albeit not all of them are paying since many register accounts to access the free fly events like the one that just concluded. According to the latest information that creative director Chris Roberts himself shared in October 2022, 1.7 million players are actually paying customers. Of course, that number is a few months old, so it's probably higher now. 

Star Citizen is in ongoing development and was recently updated to alpha 3.19, which brought quite a few new features to the growing persistent universe.

Full disclosure: the author of this post has backed Star Citizen all the way back when its crowdfunding was first launched in September 2012.
