Happy Monday, everyone!
Ship Showdown 2021 has begun! The feud of fighters, the fray of freighters, the battle to determine the best vehicles in Star Citizen has kicked off with Phase 1 today, and your favorite ship needs your help to rise to the top. The 16 flyable ships with the most activity will make it into the Ship Showdown finals, where they will go head-to-head in the ultimate tournament of aerospace champions. Check out the Ship Showdown tournament page for details.
On top of Ship Showdown, there’s a ton of great content coming this month in the world of Star Citizen. From our next AMA to Talk Like a Pirate Day, there’s plenty of things to look forward to. And in case you missed it, our Free Fly event has kicked off! Invite your friends to play for free now through August 27, and if they decide to stick around and grab a game package, you both get a Drake Dragonfly and bonus paint for free! Check out our This Month in Star Citizen post for all the details.

On Tuesday, the Narrative team will bring us this month’s Galactapedia update.
Wednesday, rumors circulating the Stanton system point to an imminent return of the Pyro-based gang XenoThreat. First time joining the CDF in the fray? We’ll have a guide to get you started as well. We also have a Roadmap Update going live on Wednesday, accompanied by a Roadmap Roundup.
This Thursday, we’re back with Inside Star Citizen on our YouTube Channel, this time with our next Origin Story where we’ll get to learn more about the folks at CIG you don’t normally hear about, followed by another delicious Sprint Report.

Rounding out the week will be a Star Citizen Live Gamedev episode with Associate Art Director Jeremiah Lee where he’ll be creating concepts for one of the new outlaw gangs being developed for the upcoming Pyro System.
