This Week in Star Citizen 50/2023

Happy Monday, everyone!

Alpha 3.22: Wrecks to Riches went live on the PU servers last week, bringing with it Structural Salvage, new character hairstyles, personal cargo containers to put your bits and bobs in, another massive update to Arena Commander (including new maps, modes, match types, and multi-crew spawning), all-new Derelict Settlements to explore, and more just in time for the holidays!

On the subject of holidays, the Luminalia festivities are in full swing! Luminalia is an annual holiday celebrated by the Banu and Humanity alike on December 22, and we’re counting down the days with gifts in the ‘verse and two contests with chances for you to win some treats!

Claim your daily goodies from the Luminalia Calendar (we’ve got cookies!), showcase your creativity and spread some holiday fear cheer in our action-packed greeting card contest, or die hard in Arena Commander. Go up against other Citizens and CIG staff to claim your spot in the top three on the winning side and an Origin X1 Force if you’re successful! Also, if you’re in the mood for a seasonal slay ride, you can look forward to some holiday hijinks with the Jumptown global event kicking off on December 22.

And, as celebrations are always better when shared with your close ones, there’s a referral bonus activated from now through January 8 so that you and the players you refer can greet the challenges in the new year appropriately suited up!

Lastly, thanks to everyone who stopped by the Intel x Star Citizen booth at Dreamhack Atlanta! We had a blast getting to chat with you all over the weekend. 

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

Tuesday brings about the latest monthly Galactapedia update from the Narrative team.

Inside Star Citizen and Star Citizen Live are officially on holiday hiatus. But fret not, we’ll be back in the new year with the usual in-depth content you love!

On Friday, the Jumptown global event returns deadlier than ever, with a brand-new location and updates to some favorites! You’ll also receive our weekly RSI Newsletter delivered to your inbox, and Subscribers can look forward to the December issue of Jump Point magazine.

This Saturday, our friends at ANZIA Racing are poised to deliver some high-octane fun with their Ignition Expo event as competitors push their pedals to the metal and race to the finish line. Catch it live on their Twitch channel; the starting pistol will go off at 15:00 UTC!

As we bid farewell to 2023, we wanted to take a moment to express our heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering support and inspiration throughout this year. Your engagement has fueled our journey, and we couldn’t be more thankful. Stay tuned for what the new year holds – more exciting adventures and fresh content await! Until then, may the holiday season bring you joy and laughter, and may the coming year be filled with endless possibilities.

Thank you for being a part of our community.

Wishing you a fantastic end to the year and Happy Luminalia!
