This Week in Star Citizen
October 18, 2021

Happy Monday, everyone!

The Day of the Vara is approaching, and we have two spooky contests to get you in the spirit. Carve your way to fabulous prizes or show off your raw speed and steely nerves in two exciting Halloween-themed contests that will keep your pulse racing.

Also, we want to thank you for taking part in our polls for the community’s favorite cosplay and ship voting for Digital CitizenCon 2951. As we had already picked our three cosplay winners, we are now happy to announce that the vote for this year’s community cosplay favorite has gone to Kinshadow with his Greycat Aril armor. Congratulations! And, as you might remember, we showed off some ship silhouettes during the Ship Talk panel at CitizenCon and asked you to vote for your favorite. Now that the poll is over, we’ll take some time to “explore” the winner. ;)

As you may already know, we’re currently in Wave 1 of Alpha 3.15 PTU! We hope you’ve enjoyed your first look in-game if you have access or on Twitch or YouTube through your favorite creators if you don’t. To help you with your first steps in Alpha 3.15, we posted our first Patch Watch on Spectrum. This time, we took an in-depth look at the upcoming Personal Inventory mechanic, including tips on how to get started and the changes to backpacks, the vehicle inventory, looting, and server crash recovery.

Lastly, we know many folks have follow-up questions for our CitizenCon panelists… we’re currently coordinating with the team to lock in a few AMAs (Ask Me Anything), with our first likely to be next week!

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

On Tuesday, join the Narrative team on a journey into a dark forest in search of one of the UEE’s most gruesome and notorious crime scenes. We’ll also publish another Patch Watch talking about how spawn closets help improve missions, the integration of gaze tracking, and the upcoming shield changes.

On Wednesday, we’ll release the Anvil Liberator Q&A with developer answers to your most voted questions about Star Citizen’s first dedicated ship carrier. We’ll also publish our bi-weekly Roadmap Update and associated Roadmap Roundup.

On Friday, you’ll see an update to the Subscriber Vault and the weekly RSI Newsletter delivered to your inbox. We’ll also welcome Todd Papy and Richard Tyrer talking all about Alpha 3.15 in a new episode of Star Citizen Live, on our Star Citizen Twitch channel at 9am Pacific / 4pm UTC.

Have an excellent week!
