Sometimes, I just really can't decide: do I want a downpayment on a house, or virtual items?
That's the realm of money we're talking about with the latest combined offering for Star Citizen. Since I've only spent $US60 on the game through Kickstarter, I can't see the package directly myself. But the Legatus Pack was helpfully screenshotted by a user on the official Star Citizen forums and shared for all to see, including the price tag: $35,837 ($US27,000).
"Comprised of over 100 vessels from every noteworthy manufacturer of note, this perfect collection empowers any fleet commander to forge a lasting legacy, leading humanity towards a brighter future," the package description says.
The package comes with 117 ships and 163 extras, including download codes for Star Citizen and Squadron 42. Anyone buying this presumably would probably already have both of those things, although users noted that it's possible to message the developers directly to purchase the pack if they're not able to see it.
You could also buy a used car. Or a cheap new one. Or a really long holiday. Or some PCs for your friends so they can play Star Citizen at smooth frame rates. Not too many friends, mind you.
It's also worth reiterating that every Star Citizen ship, eventually, can be earned through in-game credits. And given that you'd be likely working in a organisation to crew the larger ships in the game anyway, with each member contributing the ships they've already purchased, the Legatus Pack seems excessive. Interestingly, it's not known whether anyone has bought the pack yet, according to our compatriots in the US.
But hey. Some people have more money than they know what to do with. So if that's you, enjoy.
