Subscriber Year Two Plans

Subscriber Year Two Plans

Approved concept for the Year One Imperator installationApproved concept for the Year One Imperator installation

Greetings Citizens,

Many of our backers have recently started the second year of their development subscriptions. We’ve been hard at work coming up with new rewards for the dedicated subscribers who have helped support Star Citizen so much in the past year. We’re excited to announce those plans today!

The biggest change for Year Two is that all Subscribers will start earning in-game display items for their hangars (and eventually elsewhere.) Every two months we’ll add a surprise item to your account; it could be anything from a unique fish for your tank to a futuristic toolbox for your hangar! These items won’t give any special gameplay advantage and they will be available to discover in Star Citizen once the persistent universe launches… but for now, the only way to display them is by becoming a development subscriber!

Additional softcovers will be available for sale to 12-month Centurions (past or present) at a cost of $40 (which basically covers printing and shipping). The softcover version will also be available in limited numbers to all backers for $80. More details about the book will be made available shortly, when preorders go live.
