Star Citizen’s Around the Verse this week sees the return of Ben Lesnick just in time for the 2.4 patch to land on the public test server and drop its NDA. Of note is the check-in from Austin producer Jake Ross, who discusses the updated 2.4 weapon animations in 2.4, shopping experience, temporary events, and more shopping stuff:
“Lastly, and looking ahead to future releases, we’re looking at some more shops. Not for ArcCorp and not for Port Olisar but for a new space station that will be sort of a pirate based space station. So this space station will be more for the outlaws and things like that. But even outlaws like to buy things so we have shops there in the works for this new station. And it will have different shops that’ll be able to sell different things. You’ll probably see some more outlaw armour types, and some pirate clothing, and more weapons, and things like that. So we’re trying to get you guys to travel to different areas and give you incentives to go hang out at different places and we’ll have a wide variety of things in the PU so the first steps is getting shoping out to you guys, first release, and then after that we’ll look to put even more content out there to get you guys flying around the ‘verse.”
There’s also a lore piece on the Tamsa system and black holes, plus a tease for the second part of the piping system. Watch the whole show down below.
