This Week in Star Citizen
October 15th, 2018

Hello everyone,

Last week, Star Citizens from around the globe descended upon Austin, Texas for our biggest CitizenCon yet. We had an incredible and unforgettable time meeting all of you in attendance. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: having the opportunity to engage with you all on such a personal level is truly amazing. The interactions at CitizenCon recharge our batteries for the remainder of the year and beyond.

This year’s format featured a wide variety of activities to choose from throughout the day. In case you missed anything while you were outside riding the life-size Drake Dragonfly, or in your kitchen restocking your watch-party munchies, we’ll be releasing a different CitizenCon 2948 panel to our YouTube channel every day, so you can still catch everything that went down over the coming weeks.

Speaking of the Drake Dragonfly, we’re also excited to release a full gallery of attendees riding the to-scale bike at the event, so look out for that Comm-Link in the very near future.

Also last week, Star Citizen Alpha 3.3 was made available to all backers on the PTU. Looking to put OCS up to the test? Interested in providing feedback on some of the latest features? Get in the game and try it all out. And if you’re looking to bolster your fleet, also make sure to check out the 11 new and updated flyable ships coming in 3.3.

We also surprised the crowd at CitizenCon with a special reveal of the Anvil Valkyrie. The Valkyrie ups the ante on troop transport. Designed to safely deliver and extract up to twenty fully-outfitted soldiers (as well as vehicles) to and from the most hostile locations, this conflict-ready mil-spec craft is a formidable force. Both offensively and defensively dominant, it’s dependable to the end.

If you have more questions about the Valkyrie or Kraken, make sure to submit your questions soon for our upcoming Q&A’s.

Lastly, as we’ve all witnessed countless times on the Hub, our Star Citizen community has a wealth of talent and passion in delivering amazing videos, highlighting the beauty of the ‘verse. Last week, we sent out a call to all producers, editors, and camera operators to create a commercial for the Consolidated Outland Mustang Series. We can’t wait to see what you create.

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 on by YOU. This week we talk about the ship pipeline, weapon reloading, mountains, and more. Subscribe to our YouTube channel and turn on the notifications to be among the first to watch!

On Tuesday, our Lore Team will publish another in-fiction gem to help immerse you deeper in the Star Citizen universe.

Thursday will welcome another episode of Around the Verse. Expect a lighter than usual episode due to much of the team still recovering/traveling home to their respective studios.

Lastly, for the reasons just mentioned, Reverse the Verse will be taking the week off as we get back into the swing of things. Fear not though, we’ll be back next week, and we’ll see you in the verse!
