This Week in Star Citizen 51/2022

Happy Monday, everyone!

First, we’d like to give you all an update on Star Citizen Alpha 3.18. This upcoming milestone marks a giant technical leap forward on Star Citizen’s journey to deliver real universal persistence, and we couldn’t have done it without all of you. Thank you! The biggest task for us right now is getting everything running smoothly enough to release to the live servers. While we’re close, we’ve determined this will require a bit more time. Our current target is to open Alpha 3.18 on the PTU to ALL testers this week, so ALL of you can dive in and check out the new content and technology over the holiday break. We’ll then come back strong after the holidays and work to release to the Live servers in January.

As a reminder, if you’re looking to check out what lesser-known features (not listed on the Roadmap) are coming to the ‘verse with Alpha 3.18, be sure to check out the firstsecond, and third Patch Watch posts.

On the more festive side of things, there are only three days left until Luminalia on December 22, which means we’ve still got some more in-game goodies for you to claim on this year’s calendar (for FREE!). Make sure to head over to our dedicated Luminalia page to claim yours. You’ll also find details about this year’s discounted starter packages and referral bonus!

And since this will be the last This Week In Star Citizen (TWISC) of the year, we’re looking ahead to the many significant community-driven events coming in 2023, including the Daymar RallyCrux Cup 2953, and Con42. We can’t wait to kick 2953 off in style with all of you. We want to take a moment to say THANK YOU for all of your support – this universe would not be possible without each and every one of you!

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

This Tuesday, the Narrative team brings us the latest monthly Galactapedia update.

Wednesday has the latest update for the Public Roadmap alongside a Roadmap Roundup. This will be the last update for the year, with updates in the new year.

ISC and SCL are officially on holiday hiatus as well – but fear not, we’ll also be back in the new year with the usual in-depth content you love!

On Friday, you’ll receive our weekly RSI Newsletter delivered to your inbox, and Subscribers can look forward to an update to the Subscriber Vault and the December issue of Jump Point magazine.

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