This Week in Star Citizen
August 2, 2021

Happy Monday, everyone!

Alpha 3.14 has undergone rigorous testing on the PTU, and thank you to all of you who participated! We’re aiming to release 3.14 to the Live servers this week, so warm those engines and keep an eye on Spectrum for when the new update drops.

In case you missed it, Inside Star Citizen is back from its quarterly hiatus! Our latest episode takes a look at the beginnings of loot generation in the ‘verse, along with an absolutely…fire VFX sprint report. Check it out here.

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

On Tuesday, the Narrative team has an exciting new short story titled “The Payout”. Sully returns to Hurston to make a simple drop, but when it goes horribly wrong he’s forced to seek help from friends he left behind long ago. We also have our Subscriber Comm-link and Newsletter coming on Tuesday as well. UPDATE: Subscriber updates will be coming on Wednesday, August 4th instead of the originally planned Tuesday, August 3rd.

This Wednesday, the development teams have put together their reports for July, so keep an eye out for a pair of Monthly Reports on both Star Citizen and Squadron 42. The PU Monthly Report will be a comm-link here on the RSI website, and Squadron 42’s Monthly Report will arrive via email.

Thursday we’re back with another episode of Inside Star Citizen. ISC this week is a look behind the scenes at game production with the US Vehicle Content Team and another Sprint Report?! It must be the Road to CitizenCon…

On Friday, you’ll see an update to the Subscriber Vault and the RSI Newsletter will wait for you in your inbox. We’ve got a new Star Citizen Live episode as well, which will broadcast on our Star Citizen Twitch channel. This Friday at 10am Pacific / 5pm UTC, we’ll have Rob Reininger, Chad McKinney and Ben Dorsey from the US PU Features Team on the show to discuss various aspects of what their team has worked on or is currently working on.

Have a great week!

The Ultimate Battle Show by Terada

Terada has put together a compilation of some of the great combat footage he’s recorded over the last few years, set to some music that makes us want to visit Mars for some reason. This is an incredible look at the large-scale, adrenaline-filled multi-crew combat of Star Citizen.
