This Week in Star Citizen
May 7th, 2018

Hello Citizens,

Last week, CitizenCon 2948 was all the buzz with tickets going on sale in waves on Wednesday and Thursday. Didn’t pick up a ticket? Fear not, for we still have Standard Access tickets available here. We can’t wait to see many of you in October!

Also, we were stunned by your ability to capture awe-inspiring scenic vistas for Round 2 of our Screenshot Contest on Spectrum. Congratulations to citizen NarayanN7 for winning and grabbing an Intel® Optane™ SSD 900P. This week’s theme is Lifestyle. We want to see what a day in the life of your character is all about. Lounging at the bar, dance parties, shopping for your latest wardrobe, and more! You can enter the contest in this Spectrum thread.

With that, let’s see what’s going on this week:

Today sees a brand new episode of Calling All Devs, the show answering the questions asked and voted on by you, the Star Citizen community. This week is our longest Calling All Devs yet, with an in-depth discussion about Gravlev, atmospheric flight, IFCS and more.

On Tuesday, the Lore Team opens up the Jump Point Vault and publishes either a Galactic Guide or Portfolio article that was previously available to Subscribers in our monthly Jump Point magazine.

Every Thursday, we welcome an all new episode of Around the Verse. Throughout Star Citizen’s development, we’ve brought you the latest news in a variety of formats, refining our process as we go. The goal is always to serve the community with the most up-to-date information possible, while still being sensitive to the demands of our developers. This Thursday’s show, we’ll also be featuring an additional segment, that will rotate between Bugsmashers, Loremaker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and two Ship Shapes a month.

Lastly, make sure to tune in on Friday at 12pm PDT / 7pm UTC for another episode of Reverse the Verse, broadcasted live on our Star Citizen Twitch channel. This week will continue the discussion of Service Beacons from Around the Verse with Tony Zurovec!

And that’s our schedule for this week, citizens. We’ll see you in the ‘Verse!
