‘Tis The Season!
Happy Holidays, Star Citizens! We’re grateful for the incredible support you’ve given us throughout 2016 and we encourage you to tune in to our annual Holiday Livestream on Friday December 16th at 11:00am PST to help us end the year with a little celebration. We will be playing Star Citizen Alpha 2.6, talking with Chris Roberts and other members of the development team, sharing a new ship design and more.
We are kicking off the final Star Citizen sale of the year with Alpha 2.6 flight ready ships, a brand new concept racer, some limited edition packs, a new t-shirt and a few other choice items! You can even share the love with discount starter packs available in limited numbers every day. Finally, on Boxing Day (December 26) a wide variety of spacecraft (mirroring the final day of the Anniversary Sale) will be available for purchase so backers can end the year with the fleet they want the most!
Welcome new Citizens!
Give the gift of the ‘verse this holiday season! Every day, we’re making a limited number of discount starter packages available to introduce new pilots to our world. A new allotment of Aurora and Mustang starter packages will be available in this space every day through December 26th starting at 11:00 AM PST. And remember: you will never need to buy anything else to enjoy playing Star Citizen.
New Ships in the Verse
The MISC Razor
The MISC Razor is Star Citizen’s final concept ship of 2016. The Razor joins the M50, Mustang Gamma, Mustang Omega and 350R in competing for the Murray Cup. We’ve built the Razor to introduce more diversity into the race mode, which will expand in future patches into the persistent universe. You can check out the information page at the link below, which includes a full-color brochure about this fast new spaceship. The Razor concept will be available through December 26.

New Kids on the Block
Star Citizen Alpha 2.6 will introduce a fleet of new spacecraft: the four variants created for this year’s anniversary event, the Vanguard Hoplite, the Drake Herald, the Drake Caterpillar and the luxurious Origin 85X. These ships will be on sale starting today and running through the week following 2.6’s release. You can learn more about the Herald and Caterpillar with special in-universe brochures and other content available through the links below.
Want to build up your fleet? We’ve made a selection of new discount packs available, plus some fan favorites back by popular demand! Whether you want to pick up the original Star Citizen lineup or your own dedicated racing team, there’s something for everyone.
The Drake expansion
Drake Interplanetary’s Caterpillar has long proven to be a reliable, cost-effective multi-role vessel, capable of being outfitted for everything from mercantile operations to combat support. The Caterpillar will premiere in Star Citizen Alpha 2.6 where it will be one of the largest flight-ready ships currently available.

The Drake Herald is a dedicated ‘information runner,’ which means that it’s a system of high tech computers attached to massive thrusters. Designed to safely move sensitive data across the vast distances of space, the Herald also has the ability to broadcast and collect information on the spectrum. Herald owners are strongly reminded to only intercept data that belongs to them.
