This Week in Star Citizen
October 14th, 2019

Happy Monday, everyone!

You’re standing at the mouth of a cave; the yawning aperture suggests risk and reward in equal measure. Armed with some flares, a Salvo frag pistol, and a Pyro Multitool, you descend into the dark. Making the gamble. Taking the plunge. A little while later you emerge, sweating, panting. Your flares are gone, your pistol empty. You barely survived. It was risky to be sure, but you smile as you think of the gems weighing down your pack.

This is life among the stars. This is Star Citizen Alpha 3.7 – Into The Depths, now available to all backers!

Also last week: The Caterpillar swept the competition in the Ship Showdown, and Star Citizen celebrated its Birthday!! Seven years ago today Star Citizen was announced to the world, and together, over the subsequent years we have built the most engaged, creative, and fervent communities in gaming. Thank YOU for helping making Star Citizen and Squadron 42 possible.

Now, let’s see what’s going on this week:

Monday, we’re kicking off not one, but TWO spooktacular Halloween contests! Whether you’re into carving your very own Star Citizen themed jack-o-lantern, or if you’re a regular haunt at the local caves on Daymar, there’s something for everyone.

Tuesday, the Lore Team will regale us with yet another detailed lore post. These posts are integral to building out our worlds and breathe life and history into the Star Citizen universe. Don’t miss it!

Subscribers, keep an eye out on Wednesday for your latest newsletter.

This is the last week of our Inside Star Citizen hiatus, so while there won’t be an episode this Thursday, we’ll be back next week!

Friday will bring us updates to the Roadmaps and the Subscriber Vault. Of course, the weekly newsletter will be delivered straight to your inbox. And finally, we welcome a new episode of Star Citizen Live, which will be broadcasting on our Star Citizen Twitch channel. Keep an eye on Spectrum to discover who will be this week’s guest.

See you in the ‘verse!
