This Week in Star Citizen

Hello everyone,

We hope you have been enjoying the daily CitizenCon panel uploads on our YouTube channel. There’s still more panels being released through the end of the month, so keep an eye out for those!

Last week we also kicked off two equally haunting contests. Get into the Halloween spirit with this year’s Pumpkin Carving Contest, or show us your best in-game screenshots depicting your character’s most terrifying or terrified expressions, using the newly introduced FOIP technology! As a reminder, both of these contests end tonight at 11:59 PM Pacific.

Lastly, for the chance to get your hands on a Constellation Phoenix, or other exciting prizes, check out our Mustang Commercial Contest. Similar to the Halloween contests, you only have until tonight at 11:59 PM Pacific to submit a video focusing on one variant of the Mustang lineup for a chance to win!

And with that, let’s see what else is going on this week:

Calling All Devs is back! Every week, designers, engineers and other developers from our five offices around the world answer backer questions submitted on Spectrum and voted for by YOU. This week we talk about inner thought animations, the Banu Defender, and more!

Wednesday will bring the answers you’ve been looking for in our latest Q&A, this time for the Anvil Valkyrie.

Thursday will welcome a new episode of Around the Verse where we’ll take a look at the latest Star Citizen news and dive further into the tech behind the CitizenCon mission playthrough.

Tune in on Friday at Noon Pacific for another episode of Reverse the Verse, broadcast live on our Star Citizen Twitch channel. This week, Sean Tracy and Josh Herman will follow up on the “What a Bunch of Characters” and “Breathing Life into Content with Physics” panels from CitizenCon. Post your questions on Spectrum and vote on the ones you want to see addressed most.
