This Week in Star Citizen
October 26, 2020

Haunted Monday, everyone!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Before we get into everything, I’d like to remind everyone that this is the last week of our fantastic month of fright.

Pick up Drake’s Day of the Vara-inspired Ghoulish Green Cutlass Paint, or strike fear in the heart of your foes with any one of the Fieldsbury Dark Bear Helmets. You can still unlock two exclusive helmets by completing the in-game challenges through the 31st! Unlock the Snarling Vanduul Helmet by racking up 50 kills in the Glaive or Gladius (both currently available to free fly), or venture to the notoriously haunted Benny Henge to unlock the Hill Horror Helmet!

Get more info on everything spooky this month in our Halloween Celebration post here!

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

No tricks here! On Tuesday, the narrative team will treat us with a new Portfolio on Talon Weapon Systems. The 27th is also Day of the Vara in the ‘verse. The black and green-themed holiday encourages celebrants to dress up in costumes and swap scary stories.

Thursday welcomes another episode of Inside Star Citizen. This week we’ll be checking out the style guide for the new Aegis HUD and taking a look at a prototype for ship-board power and resource management!

It’s also the last day to submit your entry to both the Pumpkin Carving Contest and the Day of the Vara Story Contest. You can check out some of the already submitted pumpkins below, featuring haunted helmets, scary ships, and the most frightening foe you’ll ever face in the ‘verse… Pico the Penguin. We can’t wait to see what you carve up!

On Friday, we’ll be dropping a spooktacular Death of a Spaceman-focused episode of Calling All Devs that you can check out on our YouTube Channel. Also, you’ll also catch our weekly Roadmap update and Roundup, and the weekly RSI Newsletter delivered to your inbox. Subscribers can look forward to an update to the Subscriber Vault and the October issue of Jump Point.

Costumes and Cosplays galore! Saturday is the last day to submit your entry to our Virtual Cosplay Contest. We’ll also be announcing the winner of both Halloween contests!

Have a great week, and stay spooky, friends!

3D Printed Desk Buddy by Ungineer

We’ve seen Pico in the ‘verse, Pico in plush form, and now Ungineer has brought to life 3D printed Pico! This wonderful desk buddy stands small at a height of 4 inches and is perfectly proportioned to accompany you through the workday.

Check out more Pico pics on the Community Hub.
