Over the past six months, we've seen a tremendous response to the new In-Game Rewards initiative that began with our "Planets of Stanton" themed knives in January and continues this month with our similarly-styled Pyro Multi-Tools. We're excited to continue exploring where we can take Subscriber Flair in the second half of the year and beyond.
In addition to the new rewards, this month marks the first test of our new Pledge Promotion Upgrade (also known as CCU) that allows all Subscribers to upgrade existing pledges to the Subscriber Ship of the Month from the previous period. Combined with the addition of Warbond offerings, we're always looking out for new ways to add value to the Subscriber Program wherever and whenever we can.
We’ve also made improvements to the Subscriber-exclusive merchandise discount. Whereas before there would be limited-time promotions on select physical goods, we're now offering two continuous levels of discount on most real-world merchandise items. New items are 10% off, and existing items are 15% off for all Subscribers. To see what's currently available, check out the Merchandise Store.
With that, let's learn more about what's happening this month.
IN-GAME REWARDS (FLAIR)
The Pyro from Greycat Industrial is a pistol-sized power tool for the modern space engineer that’s capable of charging, cutting, and patching thanks to its wide assortment of attachments. It’s perfect for making a tough job a little bit easier.
Pyro RYT “Ghost” Multi-Tool – The tried-and-true Multi-Tool with styling to match the UltiFlex knife, the “Ghost” edition features a grey frame with light blue accents meant to evoke the environments of microTech.
Current Centurion-level Subscribers get the Pyro RYT “Ghost” Multi-Tool seen here as part of their subscription.
Pyro RYT “Mirage” Multi-Tool – The “Mirage” edition adds eye-catching gold highlights to brown accents, putting it right at home on the plains of Hurston.
Current Imperator-level Subscribers get both the “Ghost” and “Mirage” Multi-Tools as part of their subscription.
Pyro RYT “Bloodline” Multi-Tool – The limited-edition “Bloodline” blends decorative red highlights throughout the tool, similar to those found across ArcCorp’s industry-covered surface.
The “Bloodline” multi-tool is available to all Subscribers for purchase from the Subscriber-exclusive store.
If you aren’t a Subscriber and would like to receive the “Ghost” or “Mirage” multi-tool as part of a subscription, you can SUBSCRIBE by June 15th.
Additionally, if you subscribe after June 15th, you can pick up these and previous month’s flair (going back to 2014) from the Subscriber-Exclusive store. You can fill in any gaps as well as pick up extras to gift to non-Subscribers.
SHIP OF THE MONTH
The Anvil Carrack features reinforced fuel tanks for long-duration flight, an advanced jump drive, and a dedicated computer core for jump charting operations. Originally a military exclusive, the Carrack is now available for civilian use. On-board accommodations include crew, medical, and repair facilities alongside a mapping-oriented sensor suite.
The Anvil Carrack is currently available to all Subscribers until July 1st, 2020.
SUBSCRIBER-EXCLUSIVE PLEDGE PROMOTION
May's Ship of the Month is now available with enhanced insurance and several flair items included at no additional charge until the end of the month.
Additionally, Cross-Chassis Upgrades (CCU) are now available for these promotions and will continue going forward. Subscribers will find both Standard and Warbond options from applicable vehicles in the Pledge Store by clicking on "Ship Upgrades."
SUBSCRIBER MERCHANDISE DISCOUNT
As mentioned above, all Subscribers now have two continuous discount levels on most physical merchandise items. New items are 10% off, while existing items are 15% off, including jackets, hoodies, shirts, mugs, hats, beanies, mousepads, posters, stickers, and more. You can check out the Merchandise Store to see what options are currently available.
Remember that all previous month's In-Game Rewards (often referred to as "Sub Flair") going back to 2014 are available for purchase in our Subscriber-Exclusive store. You can fill in any gaps, pick up the store-only items, or even grab extras that you can gift to non-Subscribers from the My Hangar section of your profile here on the website.
