This Week in Star Citizen
April 19, 2021

Happy Monday everyone,

Last week, we announced the date of CitizenCon 2951, our annual celebration of all things Star Citizen. As circumstances continue to keep us from gathering in person, we’re leveraging an all-digital format to bring the festivities on October 9 to your homes – it’s safe and free to access to all via Twitch! We’ve seen and appreciate your early feedback and are already in planning mode for a day full of events, panels, and more.

Furthermore, we can say that the live release of Alpha 3.13 is already dawning as the Public Test Universe (PTU) is now open to all backers. We want to thank everyone who has played so far and helped us test! Navigating the (sometimes choppy) waters of the PTU is invaluable to our efforts of finding and fixing bugs for a smooth live release.

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

On Tuesday, the Narrative Team will publish Mining Rocks, a Shubin employee newsletter discussing the importance of using the right mining modules.

On Wednesday, we’ll look to update the Roadmap alongside a Roadmap Roundup. As a reminder, having a small update, or no update at all, simply means that we haven’t had to shuffle anything around and development work continues as planned.

Then on Thursday, Inside Star Citizen will be back with a Sprint Report and more!

On Friday, you’ll see an update to the Subscriber Vault and the RSI Newsletter will wait for you in your inbox. We’ll also welcome a new Star Citizen Live episode, which will broadcast on our Star Citizen Twitch channel at 8am Pacific/3pm UTC. This week is a gamedev episode looking at all things level design!

Have a great week, everyone!
