This Week in Star Citizen
May 17, 2021

Happy Monday everyone!

The time has finally arrived for 2951’s Invictus Launch Week! This year’s festivities are looking to be bigger and better than ever before, so be sure to head over to New Babbage to check out the show floor this Friday, May 21. Also keep an eye out for the UEE Navy fleet, which plans to visit major spaceports in the Stanton system throughout the event with a much larger presence than years past.

In addition to the in-game celebrations, we’re hosting a number of contests with sweet prizes to be won throughout the event. Without spoiling things… avid racing fans will want to suit up and warm their engines!

And while Invictus Launch Week kicks off on Friday, the very next day we’ll kick off a Free Fly (Saturday, May 22). Have a friend who has been curiously looking to the stars and wondering what Star citizen is all about? Well, now’s their chance to find out.

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

On Tuesday, the Narrative Team will immerse you in this year’s big event with “Showdown! United In Purpose”. Two guests on the Spectrum show series “Showdown!” debate the importance of Invictus and it’s impact on the empire.

On Wednesday we’ll be updating the Star Citizen Public Roadmap, along with extending the horizon of the roadmap to Q1 2022. Keep an eye out for the accompanying Roadmap Roundup for all the details.

Thursday has a brand new episode of our weekly episodic behind-the-scenes series, Inside Star Citizen, giving the latest updates on the development of the persistent universe.

On Friday, you’ll see an update to the Subscriber Vault and the weekly RSI Newsletter delivered to your inbox. Finally, we have a new episode of Star Citizen Live, which will broadcast on our Star Citizen Twitch channel at 3pm UTC / 8am Pacific. This week is our All About Military Vehicles Q&A with Vehicle Director John Crewe and Vehicle Art Director Ben Curtis. And don’t forget, Invictus Launch Week begins this Friday as well!

Have a great week, everyone!

Interstellar Docking Scene in Star Citizen by GSundin

We were all absolutely floored by this shot for shot remake of the iconic docking scene in Interstellar, recreated in Star Citizen with the Merlin and Constellation. Using everything from FOIP to the new docking feature, this is a video you don’t want to miss.

Watch the full video on the Community Hub.
