Star Citizen’s latest video roundup managed to cram a fair number of updates owing to a quick “sprint report” segment that briefed players on several points of interest. Basically, it’s all about show and not tell for this episode of the video series.
First, we got a look at several concept art pieces for NPCs of various professions, including a swank new bartender outfit, some looks at chefs and restaurant servers, and some bounty hunter armors. We even see some new cold weather outfits since microTech is a pretty frosty place. These looks will be in production soon and arriving in-game at some point in the near future.
The sprint report segment gave a quick rundown of some new in-game items like a new ship-mounted laser weapon and a number of bartending stations, some fresh peeks inside of the Vanu Defender’s cockpit, and a first pass at the ability to harvest items from plants, which will lead to what the video called an “actor status system” — RSI’s overblown way of saying “player characters will have to mitigate hunger and thirst.”
Finally, the video offered a tour of a variety of rooms aboard the lower decks of the luxurious 890 Jump. Many of these decks are workman locations, including the cargo area, crew sections, and hangar bay, but we also get a look at the onboard spa area and waiting room. It’s opulent as heck, honestly.
