It’s another week and that means another episode of Star Citizen’s video digest series. This week, we get a closer look at the Invictus Launch Week event as well as a peek at what’s coming next for alpha 3.9 and beyond.
The first half of the video details the backstory of Invictus, shows off how the Bevic Convention Center is dressing up for the event, and takes a closer look at a new rover from Origin, the G12, which has a military variant (and explains why a “fashionable” manufacturer like Origin is even in this event). The video also promises that there is more for players to discover outside of the convention center, namely somewhere up in space.
The second half of the video goes into another sprint report which focuses on new content due to the game. Players can look forward to the first iteration of body dragging mechanics in alpha 3.10 and the Cutlass Blue arriving in alpha 3.9.1, as well as other things down the line like dynamic HUD lighting that brightens or darkens based on background and expanded hangar and raceway areas of GrimHEX. There’s even a first look at the planet Pyro I.
