The RSI Orion Mining Platform Has Arrived!


It’s a big day for all of the future Trade & Industry magnates out there. Not only do we learn exactly how mining will work in the Star Citizen universe, but the vessel born for the task — the Orion from RSI — is finally on sale!

Carrying a price tag of $325 and coming with a lifetime insurance policy, the Orion represents the first of the big task-specific ships since the Carrack to reach the concept sale phase.


To go along with the ship, CIG has posted a design deep-dive that’s all about how mining will work in Star Citizen. It speaks of each crew member’s potential responsibility, and what you can do with that delicious ore once you’ve got it in your hold.


There was also supposed to be a new mini-game to play on the RSI website, however a tweet from Ben Lesnick seems to indicate item might have been delayed. No mention for how long.

So, what do you think Imperium T&I? Is the Orion everything you hoped for?
