This Week in Star Citizen 27/2023

Happy Monday, everyone!

Foundation Festival 2953 is in full swing. This year’s event brings back the month-long community celebration intended to foster a welcoming atmosphere for new players and veterans alike. Activities and rewards include a Free Fly event, Referral Bonus, Organization Spotlights, exclusive rewards for both new and veteran pilots, and more!

In the festival’s spirit, new pilots can explore the ‘verse for free until July 17 – all you have to do is sign up, visit the Foundation Festival page to activate the Free Fly, and take to the skies. And through July 31, you and a friend can drive home Greycat Industrial’s adventure-ready STV for free! Simply share your referral code with your friends and, when they pick up a Starter Pack, you’ll both receive the bonus vehicle.

In addition, we released the Org Spotlight Gallery, highlighting 40 player organizations making the ‘verse a better place. They’re just a small sample of the hundreds of epic submissions we received, and each of them is open to new members and deserves the spotlight. There’s also many more Orgs out there in the ‘verse to discover.  

On the Bar Citizen front, we enjoyed connecting with the always-fun French community in Paris during TwitchCon weekend. Thanks to all who came out and said hello, and a huge shoutout to the organizers for having us!

Last but not least, we announced the Star Citizen community winners of the Show Us Your Colors Celebration 2023. If you haven’t checked out the submissions, find some time to do so. The content this year was awesome!!

Now, let’s see what’s going on this week:

On Tuesday, the narrative team is back with the latest issue of Whitley’s Guide, providing you with all the background information on the trusted MISC Prospector.

Wednesday has the latest Roadmap Update, paired with all of the details in a Roadmap Roundup post plus we will publish last week’s July Squadron 42 Monthly Report as a Comm-link.

On Friday, you’ll see the weekly RSI Newsletter delivered to your inbox. Finally, we have a new episode of Star Citizen Live, which will broadcast on our Star Citizen Twitch channel on 15:00 UTC/8am Pacific. We will have Senior Tools and Tech Content Director Sean Tracy and Lead Gameplay Programmer Duncan Bunting as our guests for an update on Arena Commander’s past, present, and future. Check out the questions gathering thread today!

For Saturday, we want to bring two community-driven events to your attention. Streamers Smashley6lasphamous, and AuthenticYoung will each host a team of 30 Tumbril Nova Tanks, and battle it out in a 30 v 30 v 30 Tonk battle against each other. You will also have the chance to with a Nova Tank as all the team leaders will be hosting a giveaway for one on their stream. The show starts at 18:00 UTC/11am Pacific.

Also on Saturday, an international community-organized virtual Bar Citizen event kicks off at 16:00 UTC/8am Pacific and it would be fantastic to have you there. We’ll be there!

Have a stellar week both in and out of the ‘verse!
