Happy Monday, everyone!
Star Citizen Alpha 3.7 is now out to Wave 1 PTU and we’ve seen a lot of you having fun with the patch over the weekend. We want to give a huge thanks to everyone hitting the servers and hope to open testing to a wider audience soon. It won’t be too long before we can all go spelunking, share missions, and see the devastating effects of a frag pistol duel!
Some of the developers themselves got in the cockpit and took the chance to showcase the RSI Mantis (the first ship to feature a Quantum Enforcement device) on the test server. With the Mantis Q&A released last week, you can get the low-down on the ship and the new interdiction gameplay before it hits the ‘verse in the upcoming Alpha 3.7 patch.
Round 2 of the Ship Showdown continued through the weekend, seeing the Reclaimer taking the win over the Dragonfly. Our eyes are glued to the current head-to-head between the Cutlass and the Caterpillar, which promises to be a close call. As we keep seeing victories by a hair’s breadth, don’t forget to log in and vote for your favorites as the tournament sets its sights on the grand finale on October 10th.
Now, let’s see what’s going on this week:
On Tuesday, the Lore Team will take a closer look at Tohil – a system that’s long been a favorite of smugglers looking to circumvent UEE and Xi’an authority. We’ll also publish a comm-link of the Squadron 42 monthly report we sent out to newsletter subscribers last week.
Thursday is Star Citizen’s birthday which, this year, coincides with the finale of the Ship Showdown! Will there be cake?
Friday will bring us updates to the Roadmaps and the Subscriber Vault. Of course, the weekly newsletter will be delivered straight to your inbox. And finally, we welcome a new episode of Star Citizen Live, which will be broadcasting on our Star Citizen Twitch channel at 12pm PDT/7pm UTC. This week will feature a Q&A on both the RSI Mantis and the new Quantum Enforcement mechanic. As usual, you can submit your questions on Spectrum.
See you in the ‘verse!
