Star Citizen’s 3.1 alpha is live for the holiday weekend
If you’re bored on the holiday weekend, and you happen to be a Star Citizen backer, you’re going to be taking to the skies, thanks to CIG pushing live the 3.1 alpha on the livest of the live test servers, playable by everybody. Everybody who’s a backer, anyway.
“New features in the 3.1 update include the much-anticipated character customizer, allowing players to add a distinctive look to their in-game avatars by personalizing their physical appearance, as well as the Service Beacon feature, providing players the ability to send out distress calls which other players can detect and respond to.”
CIG is also touting polish on a bunch of December updates (“planetary technology, IFCS (flight control), AI, the Personal Manager tool on each player’s mobiGlas, ship weapons, ship damage physics and overall performance optimization”) plus the addition of the five ships that were up for sale (again) earlier this month.
