Happy Monday, everyone!
Alpha 3.14 testing continued on the PTU last week, with groups of testers further focusing on our upcoming Dynamic Events, Ninetails Lockdown and the improved Xenothreat. We also hope you enjoyed your first look at Orison in-game if you have access and on Twitch or Youtube via your favorite creators if you don’t. As usual, we want to thank everyone who has played so far and helped us test, as all your hard work has been invaluable in our effort to clean it up for a smooth live release. We’re looking forward to opening the PTU to a larger audience soon!
To ease your wait a little in the meantime, we took the opportunity to highlight some additional content coming in Alpha 3.14 in our latest Patch Watch post.
Last week also introduced many new items to the Roadmap, as the downstream teams’ schedules have been set for Q3. You can check out all the latest deliverables in the full Roadmap Roundup, including increased visibility on the tasks needed for Server Meshing and Persistence.
Now, let’s see what’s going on this week:
This Tuesday, the Narrative Team will publish a new BOotyCall post, this time focusing on pirate hot spots and the current security situation in Stanton.
Wednesday, we’ll post the combined Postmortem for Alpha 3.13 and Invictus Launch Week, giving you exclusive insight into our feature teams’ thought processes. Don’t miss the post and see what went well, what didn’t, and what we learned for next time.
To allow the team to fully focus on the imminent release of Star Citizen Alpha 3.14, we’re going to take one more week before ISC returns and won’t have an episode this Thursday. We know many of you are eagerly waiting for the show, so expect our return episode next week.
Finishing off the week on Friday, you’ll see an update to the Subscriber Vault, and the RSI Newsletter will wait for you in your inbox. Finally, we have a new episode of Star Citizen Live, which will broadcast on our Star Citizen Twitch channel. This Friday at 8am Pacific / 3pm UTC we’ll have members of the Vehicle Experience, Feature and Technical Teams on to discuss the various new features and balancing related to vehicles in the upcoming Alpha 3.14.
Have a great week!
