This Week in Star Citizen
May 3, 2021

Attention! (and happy Monday, everyone!)

Last week we announced the date for Invictus Launch Week, including your chance to take your first step on a war-tested Javelin-class destroyer. So, make your way to the Announcement page to save the date (add it directly to your calendar!) and discover more details about the big event.

Yes, you heard it right, the Fleet approaches, and preparations for the event are in full swing. If you’d like to do your part in helping us launch our biggest UEEN welcome party yet, download the latest PTU version of Alpha 3.13.1, currently accessible for all backers, and start testing. Always remember that every issue council report helps defeat a bug!

Looking for a co-pilot to celebrate Invictus Launch Week with you? Take advantage of our current Alpha 3.13 referral bonus promotion before it’s gone. By recruiting a friend, you’ll both gain an Aurora ES with lifetime insurance for free, but only until May 10!

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

On Tuesday, you’ll learn everything about the Lightning Bolt Company and their dependable, effective, and visually very distinctive products in our Narrative Team’s Portfolio.

Furthermore, on Tuesday, Subscribers can also look forward to their monthly Comm-Link, providing all the important information about the month ahead.

Wednesday will bring you the bi-weekly Roadmap Update and Roadmap Roundup. Also, make sure to subscribe to the Squadron 42 Monthly Report here, as we’ll publish the April monthly report for Star Citizen and send out the Squadron 42’s Monthly Report per mail.

Thursday, Inside Star Citizen takes a closer look at the upcoming changes to Radar and Scanning.

On Friday, you’ll see 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 Star Citizen Twitch channel. This episode is a Q&A all about Radar and Scanning with Lead Gameplay Engineer Mark Abent and Technical Director of Content Sean Tracy, starting at 1pm Pacific / 8pm UTC.

Have a great week, everyone!
