Happy Monday, everyone!
Last week, we unveiled the Esperia Talon, a single-seat light-fighter infamous for its devastating hit-and-run attacks during the Tevarin Wars. With this recreation, Esperia has reinterpreted the alien controls to work perfectly for Human pilots. Two deadly versions are available, the standard Talon and the missile-equipped Shrike, both of which you won’t have to wait long for as their planned flyable date is December 2020!
Alpha 3.10 Fight & Flight is alive and kicking in the PU, so you can head into the ‘verse to experience the reworked flight system, Greycat ROC, and much more now. We’re currently testing the Alpha 3.10.1 patch on the Test Servers, which will fix some pesky bugs that we discovered with your help in the first days of the live release.
Following the recent release of Alpha 3.10, we extended the Foundation Festival and added even more prizes! But, as all good things must eventually come to an end, you only have two more days (until August 19) to enter for the chance to snag exclusive rewards.
The Where in the ‘Verse is Pico? Contest ended last Saturday and we’re currently sifting through the many phenomenal screenshots of your favorite furry co-pilot. We’ll announce the winners, who will take home a real-life Pico and in-game Greycat ROC, soon!
Now, let’s see what’s going on this week:
With the last stage of the Imperator election drawing closer, this Tuesday, the Narrative Team will be shining a light on Mira Ngo, the fourth of the final Imperator candidates.
Wednesday brings the monthly Infographic, this time taking a look at the pivotal moments in human history, and an AMA with our Environment Art Team from the Frankfurt office. They’ll be hopping in to answer your questions at 8:00 AM PDT (3:00 PM UTC). We’ll open up the thread on Spectrum 15 minutes early to begin collecting questions.
On Thursday, we’ll welcome the latest episode of Inside Star Citizen. Our weekly look behind the scenes of Star Citizen development takes a deeper dive into the upcoming throwing mechanic improvements and will also feature a sprint report.
On Friday you’ll see a Roadmap update and Roundup, an update to the Subscriber Vault, and the weekly RSI Newsletter delivered to your inbox. Last but not least, we’ll welcome a new episode of Star Citizen Live, which will broadcast on our Twitch channel at 9 AM Pacific / 4 PM UTC. This time, Lead FPS Systems Designer Jonny Jacevicius and Principal FPS Systems Designer Chris Parry will be on to discuss the development of FPS weapons and FPS combat systems shared by Star Citizen and Squadron 42.
Have a great week!
