This Week in Star Citizen
September 27, 2021

Happy Monday, everyone!

After a month of excellent community submissions and a thrilling tournament-style contest, your Ship Showdown 2021 champion has been crowned! The Argo Cargo will influence an officially licensed in-game backpack available for free to all backers, while all four final ships will receive an exclusive paint for IAE 2951. Head over to the Ship Showdown page for a full rundown of the event.

And with the Ship Showdown Free Fly coming to an end today, we hope you’ve enjoyed exploring and test flying the four final ships. If you want to keep the fun going, you can take advantage of the discounted Starter Packs until September 29.

Also last week, we launched the page for our upcoming CitizenCon event! It’s time once again to celebrate all things Star Citizen and, most importantly, the community that makes everything in this universe possible. You can expect a day filled with exciting content, including development deep dives, community videos, cosplay, and much more! On the page, you’ll find the schedule, goodies, and more for this year’s event, so be sure to mark your calendars for an epic Digital CitizenCon on October 9, 3:00 PM UTC.

Furthermore, a whole month of terror is crawling closer towards the ‘verse, so be on the lookout for our Day of the Vara celebrations starting at the end of this week.

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

On Tuesday, the Narrative team is back, with more content being added to our ever-expanding Galactapedia.

Thursday will see the quarterly season finale of Inside Star Citizen on our YouTube channel. We’ll take a look at bombing and discuss everything coming to Alpha 3.15 with a Patch Report.

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 8am Pacific / 3pm UTC. In this gamedev episode, we’ll be sitting down with the Props team to talk about one of our older props and how it’s being updated to today’s standards.

Have a fantastic week!

Community MVP: September 27, 2021

We're constantly amazed at the contributions made by the Star Citizen community. Whether it's fan art, a cinematic, YouTube guide, or even a 3D print of your favorite ship, we love it all! Every week, we select one piece of content submitted to the Community Hub and highlight it here. The highlighted content creator will be awarded an MVP badge on Spectrum and be immortalized in our MVP section of the Hub.

Adrift Part One by Buush

Don’t miss this Star Citizen machinima that simply blew our socks off! Watch space-faring miners Pearl and her father Emmett stumble upon a wrecked trading vessel and hold your breath as their search for survivors turns into a struggle to save their own lives.
