- Star Citizen’s latest Legatus bundle costs an insane $48,000, three times the US minimum wage.

- There is still no set release date for the multiplayer title from Cloud Imperium.
Star Citizen has unveiled its latest Legatus bundle and if you want to purchase it, you will just need to pay $48,000. As seen on the Roberts Space Industries website, this new Legatus pack will contain a whopping 100-plus ships in addition to other content that Roberts Space Industries describes as the “Definitive armada.” Hence, if you want the complete experience of commanding a fleet, this bundle is for you.
Throughout its history, Star Citizen has been popular because of the monetization methods it uses to support the game’s development. Legatus bundle has been one of these offerings from Roberts Space Industries and gives players a jump start in the title while costing thousands of dollars. Legatus 2950, the first Legatus package, came out in 2018 for a solid $27,000 and was a similar wholesale ship package.
RSI introduced this bundle once again in 2021 as Legatus 2951 with Star Citizen fans able to buy it for a meager $40,000. Next year, Legatus 2952, increased this price once again, pumping the buy-in for the annual package to $42,000. In 2023, Legatus 2953 will consist of 175 vessels from many different manufacturers and will “empower every fleet commander to forge a lasting legacy.”

To put this price tag into perspective, the minimum wage in the United States is $15,000, meaning this bundle will cost you three times your annual pay if you are a minimum-wage worker in the country. Even though Star Citizen has been in development since 2011, there is no release date in sight and the game has raised almost $500 million by selling in-game content like ships and Legatus bundles.
There is definitely a conversation to be had about Star Citizen’s pay-to-win mechanics, especially with developer Cloud Imperium Games removing any spending cap in the title. The game has been through several lawsuits due to this aspect and its apparent breach of contract with Crytek. But, only time can tell if this will affect Star Citizen and make it the flop many assume it’ll be.
