Happy Monday, everyone!
Alpha 3.10 is currently open to all backers on the PTU, and I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all of your ongoing support in testing and providing feedback. We’re super close to pushing this one out the door and can’t wait to take to the skies (or slopes if you’re a Pico the penguin fan) with you in the coming days – you can find more details in our Patch Watch Update further down this Comm-Link.
Speaking of playing together: the Foundation Festival continues! We know that many of you incredible Guides out there have been waiting for the new players coming to check out Alpha 3.10 before diving in. Because Alpha 3.10’s delayed arrival put a wrench in those plans, we’re going to be extending the Foundation Festival rewards and the related screenshot contest until August 19th.
If you were vying for one of the “top guide” spots to earn yourself a free ship, fear not, as this contest will still end on August 5th… however your chances have now doubled. On August 5th, we’ll kick off another Top Guides Contest with the same prizes rewarding the 10 top guides, running until August 19th. That’s right. Double the contest, double the prizes!
Now, let’s see what’s going on this week:
Are you a bounty hunter trying to learn more about your targets? Then don’t miss the Lore Post this Tuesday, as the Narrative Team will take us deeper into the world of crime with a portfolio on the Otoni Group crime syndicate. (Including information worth knowing for pirates, too!)
On Wednesday, we’ll publish both the Star Citizen and Squadron 42 Monthly Reports for July.
On Thursday, Inside Star Citizen will be back with a new episode, this week with a return of the Sprint Report and more!
On Friday you’ll see a Roadmap update and Roundup, an update to the Subscriber Vault, and the weekly RSI Newsletter delivered to your inbox. Last but not least, we’ll welcome a new episode of Star Citizen Live, which will broadcast on our Star Citizen Twitch channel at 9am Pacific / 4pm UTC. Lead Props Artist Cory Bamford and Props Artist Jake Taylor will host a Gamedev episode showcasing the process of creating FPS weapons for Star Citizen and Squadron 42.
Have a great week!
