This Week in Star Citizen
May 14th, 2018

Hello Citizens,

Last week, we introduced the Crusader Hercules to the lineup of ships you’ll come across while exploring the Star Citizen universe. The entire Hercules family excels in numerous military, civilian, and humanitarian aid applications. If you’re looking to discover more information about the Hercules, you can head over to our Q&A Spectrum thread to ask your burning questions.

Also, if you havn’t picked up a ticket for CitizenCon 2948, we still have Standard Access tickets available here. See a live presentation from Chris Roberts, and meet the team behind the game. We’ll also have plenty of activities and demonstrations around the venue, throughout the day to keep you entertained. We can’t wait to see you all there!

Lastly, we wrapped up our third and final round of our Intel sponsored 900p SSD Screenshot Contest. Congratulations to Captain_Raoul on their winning image.

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, we address questions on the party system, scanning ranges, cargo encumbrance, and more.

On Tuesday, the Lore Team has prepared another original piece of content, providing new fictional insight on the Star Citizen universe. If you’re looking to fully immerse yourself, these are definitely for you.

Every Thursday, we welcome an all new episode of Around the Verse. This week, not only are we going to dive into Shop Item Kiosks, but we’ll also release a Vanduul Blade themed Ship Shape segment as a special treat, no summoning thread required!

Lastly, make sure to tune in on Friday at 9AM PDT / 4PM UTC for another episode of Reverse the Verse, broadcasted live on our Star Citizen Twitch channel. This week, we’ll continue the discussion of Shop Item Kiosks and the Vanduul Blade as seen on Around the Verse.

And with that, we’ll see you in the ‘Verse.
