Welcome to Star Citizen Alpha 2.6.1! While this patch is primarily dedicated to bug fixes targeting Star Marine, Arena Commander and Crusader, it also includes a number of “quality of life” improvements for the game, updates to Spectator Mode, new implementations of our continuing network code updates, a brand new version of the Super Hornet and the first implementation of our Multi-Region Server Support.
Your launcher should show “2.6.1-506099” as the client version. It is strongly recommended that players delete their USER folder for the LIVE client after patching, particularly if you start encountering any odd character graphical issues or crash on loading. The USER folder can be found (in default installations) at C:\Program Files\Cloud Imperium Games\StarCitizen\Public.
You can read the complete Patch Notes here.
Read on for a quick look at some of the highlights included in Star Citizen Alpha 2.6.1. This week’s Around the Verse also includes an extensive look at our new Multi-Region Server Support and the history of the Anvil Hornet from inception to today’s release.
