(Citizen Star News) - by Citizen Ed - 2015-02-20 - This is Citizen Ed of Citizen Star News with “This Week In Star Citizen”, brought to you by the word Bespoke and the letters R, E and C.
Patch 1.03 Now available - Minor point release patch that fixes bugs and adjusts play balance. Check patch notes for more details.
RSI Orion is expected to go on sale today for a pledge of $325. A mini game similar to the one for the Carrack should be released in conjunction. Also expecting a Mining "Deep Dive" so a lot of focus on mining this week.
As a concept sale it will run for 10days and offer the coveted (and probably overrated) LTI (Life Time Insurance).
The 350R and M50 sale is currently wrapping up as well as the 300 series test flight promotion.
There's fantastic new inside CIG video:
CIG is working with Andy Serkis' company Imaginarium which has been pioneering in the field of performance capture. Chris had announced this a while back and so we weren't surprised by the news but this video really shows off how this will impact the Star Citizen and Squadron 42 games. I found the discussion about how they are looking at approaching the Xi'An and Vanduul animations particularly intruiging.
