This Week in Star Citizen
September 17th, 2018

Hi everyone,

Last week, after gathering questions about our latest concept ship on Spectrum, we released the Q&A for the Crusader Industries Mercury, the Star Runner chassis catering to governments and the private sector alike. Make sure to check out the Mercury before it’s gone, as it’s only available until September 18th!

Don’t have any plans for October 10th yet? Check out the CitizenCon 2948 website with details about the biggest Star Citizen event happening in Austin, Texas.

The MISC Commercial Contest ended last week, and you should check out all of the incredible entries to get a glimpse of what the life of a miner in the ‘verse feels like. We want to thank everyone who sent in a video and hope that you had as much fun creating the videos as we had watching them!

Didn’t win anything this time around, matey? No worries, the next contest is rrright arrround the corrrner, arrr!

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 joystick and gamepad support, ship locking mechanics, rest stops, and more. Subscribe to our YouTube channel and turn on the notifications to be amongst the first to watch!

On Tuesday, our Lore Team will publish another in-fiction gem, continuing the “On the Run” story published back in August. If you have some catching up to do, you can find Part 1 here.

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

Finally, make sure to tune in on Friday for another episode of Reverse the Verse, broadcast live on our Star Citizen Twitch channel. We’re looking forward to a Hammerhead double feature with a Ship Shape followed by a Q&A session at 9am Pacific! Keep an eye on Spectrum for the questions thread!

We’ll see you in the ‘Verse!
