On Saturday we reached a major funding milestone, and we want to thank our amazing community who made this possible. In a letter from the chairman, Chris Roberts shares his thoughts on the fantastic journey so far and the exciting future that lies ahead.
No matter if 2018 or 2948: this week people come together to celebrate Thanksgiving. Whether they’re hunkering down with friends or quantum traveling to be with family, Thanksgiving is all about being thankful and celebrating the holiday together with loved ones. It doesn’t matter if it’s a simple Big Benny’s noodle box, a fully dressed space turkey, or enjoying a nice Pips or Radegast with the crew. We asked you to share this wonderful experience and show the ‘verse what you’re thankful for. Participate in not one, but two contests in honor of Thanksgiving and with a bit of luck, become the proud owner of a brand-new Banu Defender, Khartu-Al, or Nox.
And while you’re taking those beautiful screenshots, don’t forget that the countdown to the 2948 Anniversary Special has begun. This Friday kicks off our most epic Free-Fly event to date, and with it our annual November ship promotion. All the flyable ships and every operable vehicle will be at your fingertips! This is your chance to try out the vessel you’ve had an eye on. It’s never been easier, and we’re sure you’ll find a helpful hand within our community should you need it. Find out more about the promotion and take to skies with our free-fly details page.
And with that, let’s see what’s going on this week:
On Calling All Devs every week, designers, engineers, and other developers from our five offices around the world answer backer questions submitted on Spectrum and voted for by YOU. This week we talk about inherited momentum, physicalized inventories, the new telemetry page, and more!
On Tuesday, the Lore Team will publish “Something Every Tuesday”, the weekly show hosted by Esen Landari. “Tune in” for great late night entertainment and check out previously published lore posts here.
Thursday won’t see an Around the Verse this week, as our North American offices will be celebrating Thanksgiving. The show will be back on December 6th.
No Reverse the Verse this Friday as we’ll be in full Anniversary mode, celebrating with a Free-Fly that’ll let you try every flyable ship and vehicle in game for free! Find out more on our promotion page. It’ll be worth to have an eye on our YouTube channel as we’ll have accompanying shows on each day of our promotion.
A happy Thanksgiving to you and your crew!
