This Week in Star Citizen 43/2023

Happy Monday, everyone!

We want to take a moment to once again thank everyone for making CitizenCon 2953 truly special. The reactions are still coming in, and we couldn’t be more proud of what we’ve built together. Between connecting with you all at the event, and the tidal wave of positivity coming out of it, our batteries are fully charged and ready to rock. We’re sure you’ve felt the electric post-show energy, which we’re feeling internally at the studios too. While we’re all smiles and celebrating, we’re focused and more determined than ever to deliver the exciting features and content you saw last weekend.

In case you missed the announcement at CitizenCon, this Tuesday we’re opening the Preview Channel: a new channel where we will deploy and test new underlying technology in an isolated environment to protect the reliability and playability of the live servers. To debut the Preview Channel, select pilots should prepare for their first expedition to Pyro, starting tomorrow.

Lastly, tomorrow is the last day to submit for the 60 Seconds of Horror Machinima Contest! Your submissions have been amazing so far, so if you’ve got one cooking, make sure to submit it on the Community Hub or TikTok by 11:59 PM Pacific on October 31 for a chance to win some ghoulish gifts!

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

Tuesday we’ll be opening the first Preview Channel servers, and many of you will be able to step into the Pyro system for the first time! Head over to Spectrum for the schedule and additional details, as the Preview Channel differs from our usual PTU process.

Wednesday we’ll have the latest Roadmap Updates (with a Roadmap Roundup) alongside October’s Monthly Reports for both Star Citizen and Squadron 42.

Inside Star Citizen and Star Citizen Live will return next week! In the meantime, we’re aiming to upload the rest of CitizenCon’s panels and presentations throughout the rest of this week.

Saturday, the Scarlet Apex 2953 racing championships are kicking things off! Make sure to tune in to at 1 PM UTC so you don’t miss all the action!

May your heart be your guiding key,

Jake Bradley
