This Week in Star Citizen
September 10th, 2018

Hello everyone,

We’re one week closer to CitizenCon 2948! As mentioned last week, we recently updated the CitizenCon website with loads of details about the event, including a breakdown of what to expect throughout the day. Find all the details here, and pick up tickets to attend in person here.

We also recently revealed Crusader Industries latest ship, the Mercury Star Runner, which is only available until next week. Catering to governments and the private sector alike, Crusader Industries’ star runner chassis raises the bar on speed and efficiency while remaining a stalwart of reliability. Find out more here.

On the community front, the MISC Prospector Commercial Contest has now ended. We’re currently in the process of reviewing submissions, and will announce the winners in the coming days. If you haven’t seen some of the incredible commercials submitted, check them out here.

Lastly, we’re still running one of our most exciting contests to date. Head over to Spectrum to find out how you can win the opportunity to direct a Motion Capture shoot LIVE at CitizenCon in our recently announced Emote Contest.

And with that, let’s see what else is going on this week:

Every week on Calling All Devs, designers, engineers, and other developers from our five offices around the world answer backer questions submitted on Spectrum and voted for by YOU. This week we we talk about non-lethal weapons, navigation coordinates, ship customization, and more. Watch the full episode here.

On Tuesday, our Lore Team will publish another in-fiction portfolio meant to breathe life into the ‘verse. If you’re the type of person who truly wants to know the universe you’re exploring, these are for you.

Fast forward to Wednesday for a landslide of information in our Mercury Star Runner Q&A, answering your top questions about Crusader’s new data runner

Thursday will welcome another episode of Around the Verse where we’ll take a look at the latest Star Citizen news.

Finally, make sure to tune in on Friday for another episode of Reverse the Verse, broadcast live on our Star Citizen Twitch channel. Stay tuned for further information about who our special guests will be and keep an eye on Spectrum for the Questions Thread!

We’ll see you in the ‘Verse!
