Chris Roberts and Cloud Imperium Games brought a special treat to PAX Australia this past weekend. The Kickstarter-funded Star Citizen is about to get even more content than its space exploration and dogfighting. The game is about to enter the first-person shooter realm, as well.

A roughly 10-minute demo debuted in front of a captive PAX Australia audience, showing off some of what the FPS scenarios will look like. Co-op teams can be seen docking onto a hostile space station before exiting and exploring its confines. That's followed by a demo of combat in zero-gravity, in which both players and random objects are floating about.

Star Citizen is still quite a long way from releasing, but the FPS portion of the game shows that the game is looking to branch out into several genres and offer something for just about everybody. Check out the FPS gameplay in the video below.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
