This Week in Star Citizen
December 21, 2020

Happy Monday, everyone!

Alpha 3.12 – Assault on Stanton went live last week, bringing the first iteration of gas cloud tech, the all-new refinery decks, Esperia’s Talon and Shrike light fighters, Multi-Tool tractor beams, and more! You can get all of the details on the newest patch here, and we are looking forward to seeing you check out everything new in the ‘verse over the holidays.

Speaking of the holidays, we also officially kicked off our Luminalia celebration, which means you’ve got some extra presents coming your way. Luminalia is an annual holiday celebrated by both the Banu and Humanity on December 22, and we’re celebrating with gifts in the ‘verse and several cozy contests that offer ships, Tobii Eye Trackers, and custom Talon ASTRO Gaming A40 headsets! Get the rundown on our Luminalia page.

And because celebrations are always better with a co-pilot by your side, we’ve started our most fabulous referral bonus to date, giving new and veteran players a chance to hover away on a Drake Dragonfly Black. Find out more here and enjoy a Dragonfly Free Fly for all backers until January 11!

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

On Tuesday, everyone’s favorite solitary shipmate, Ol’ Jegger, sinks a few and shares his thoughts on Luminalia in a festive Far From Home. For all details on Luminalia’s origins and traditions, check out the Galactapedia entry.

All of our other shows and regular publications, like Star Citizen Live and Inside Star Citizen, have already begun their holiday break and will be back in 2021.

Outside of the schedule outlined below, we are also working towards the release of our new Roadmap. We’re currently on track for a publish later this week. More info soon!

This being the last TWISC of 2020, we want to thank you for your inspiring passion and support over the year. It’s been an incredible journey so far, and we’re looking forward to what the new year brings!

Have a wonderful holiday season! Until next year, we’ll see you in the ‘verse!

We're constantly amazed at the contributions made by the Star Citizen community. Whether it's fan art, a cinematic, YouTube guide, or even a 3D print of your favorite ship, we love it all! Every week, we select one piece of content submitted to the Community Hub and highlight it here. The highlighted content creator will be awarded an MVP badge on Spectrum and be immortalized in our MVP section of the Hub.

Frapwaam choreographed Swan Lake with two Mercury Star Runners, showing that yes, spaceships can move as elegantly as ballet dancers. At least as long as I don’t pilot them…
