I don't think you can "add more content" to something that is not yet a working game.

Build the house, then add on extensions/wings? I suppose it could be done that way...

Well, "content" is a pretty broad term for anything in a game. So sure, the new planet and moons are content.

I'm curious about what the new content actually is. I saw a few videos that are appear to be flybys of the big city to show scale, and it does indeed look very large. Are the cities functional? Are there missions to do or enemies to fight? What does one do in Lorville?

Star Citizen has received 46 million dollars in venture capital in exchange for a 10% stake in the studio.

Also of note is that Squadron 42 (the single-player component of the game) has been given a release date of Summer 2020.

Who wants to bet they don’t make that Summer 2020 release date?

Note that Roberts is saying the $46 million will go towards marketing. Marketing Squadron 42, not the full game.

Scaaaaaaaam.
