Squadron 42 Wallpapers and Survey Update

Squadron 42 Wallpapers and Survey Update

Last week, subscribers received a pair of new Squadron 42 wallpapers created as part of the design process for last month’s Jump Point magazine. Now, as promised, they’re available for everyone! Please enjoy these two stunning 2880×1800 images of the Bengal carrier in action and remember that they wouldn’t have been possible without our subscribers!

We’d also like to share some of the results of the recent Star Citizen player survey (below), the same data we’ll be using to help build the game! The results, from 8,111 users, were very interesting… we were especially surprised by how much of our audience builds their own PCs! You can also download a full survey export here.

As we study this data, we’ve determined four additional questions we’d like to poll the community on, mostly relating to potential system requirements. Please note that this is not an announcement of these requirements, just something we’re curious about at this stage. Comments are encouraged below!
