This Week in Star Citizen 16/2024

Hello everyone, xē’suelen

Last week, we opened access to CitizenCon 2954‘s tickets! The response has been extraordinary, with 2023 attendance numbers already surpassed in only the first week of ticket availability. Set to ignite Manchester Central on October 19 and 20, ⁠we’re aiming for a stellar celebration like no other, and things are already shaping up to make this our biggest event yet. Make sure to check out all the details on volunteering opportunitiescommunity booths, the cosplay contest, and the exclusive CitizenCon Gala happening on Friday, October 18! If you have any questions, we have published a detailed FAQ, and if you don’t know Manchester, we have also included an extensive Guide to Manchester to help you plan your trip.

The Overdrive Initiative has now officially entered Phase Five! XenoThreat has gone silent in Stanton, stopping all operations in the system as if we successfully repelled them… The CDF wants you to help call their bluff. Resupply the jump point station and stay prepared for an imminent attack! Also, have a look at Inside Star Citizen: Initiative Indicative, for an in-depth look at how we developed the missions for this Global Event.

Mission Five is the last phase before the final XenoThreat assault, which is scheduled to begin post-Star Citizen Alpha 3.23 going live. It’s important to note that we have observed issues with Phase Five of the Initiative. We are monitoring your experiences with this phase very closely and have put together a strike team to resolve any issues for the upcoming Alpha 3.23 update. To ensure there’s ample time to complete Phase Five with the fixes, we will be extending this phase’s completion date. We’ll share more information as we have it, and as always, we appreciate your patience!

In case you missed it, we also recently rolled out the RSI 2.0 Launcher! The new launcher features a brand-new look and multiple new features inspired by your feedback! Let us know what you think!

We have also recently published the Star Citizen Monthly Report for March 2024 if you want to read the latest details on what we have been working on.

In other news, have a look at the latest episode of Inside Star Citizen, where we explore Overdrive Initiative, the latest set of missions added to the Persistent Universe.
