Now that the 2.6.1 schedule is out, we are moving forward and focusing on making 2017 an epic year! It’s pretty busy around here while development focuses on the major milestones being laid out. If you have not seen the updated production schedule – you can check check it out here!
For the Community Team, we are also preparing, refining, and building processes to ensure we are best equipped to be able to deliver interesting content to all of you. In the coming weeks we’ll be premiering a fun show that focuses on highlighting one of our favorite aspects of the Star Citizen Universe: YOU! No, not you. YOU. Yes, YOU! Stay tuned for more information on that soon.
With that, let’s take a look at this week!
On Tuesday, the Lore Team will release another installment in one of their many continuing series. The Star Citizen Universe is rich with history and a past/future worth exploring. If you find yourself easily immersed in a good story, fascinated by the design of Star Citizen, or just hungry for more information, these posts are made for you! You can also browse previous posts here.
On Wednesday, we’ll be exploring the Helios System alongside our resident Archivist, Cherie Heiberg, in an all new episode of Loremaker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
Around the Verse has returned to its regular schedule. If you want to stay in the loop or deep dive the development of Star Citizen with us, you won’t want to miss the second episode of 2017! You can catch these on our website, or our Official YouTube Channel.
Last Friday we went live on Twitch and YouTube for our second Star Citizen Happy Hour alongside guest streamer GrayHeadedGamer and Technical Director Sean Tracy. We had a great time hanging out with the two of them and are really enjoying the fun combination of game-play and guests from the community. Additionally, Sean Tracy took the time to explain the often misunderstood Megamap feature, scheduled to arrive in Star Citizen Alpha 2.6.2. If you want to learn more about this exciting new feature, you can catch the replay on our Official YouTube channel. A huge perk of doing these shows live is that you never know who might stop by.. Make sure to tune in at 10am PST, 6pm UTC at twitch.tv/starcitizen to catch this week’s show!
Lastly, this Saturday, Community Managers Jared Huckaby and myself will be traveling to San Antonio, TX for PAX South. Keep an eye out for us! We may have some cool goodies to give away. ;) Additionally, we’re very excited to meet many of you for the first time at the community organized Bar Citizen event Saturday night! You can find more info about this meetup here.
That’s all for this week, we’ll see you in the ‘Verse!
