    Hello Citizens,

    What a fun and exciting weekend it has been! On Friday, we announced the Origin 100 Series of starter ships. The 100 series has been designed specifically for solo pilots looking to turn heads without sacrificing functionality or reliability.

    Also, we kicked off the first Free Fly Weekend Event of 2018! We invited our friends, family, and guild-mates to join us in the PU to experience how much progress our team has been working on to deliver 3.1 to everyone. Not only that, but we extended the Free Fly until Apr. 18th due to the huge success and fun everyone was having, we weren’t ready to spoil it. You can read more about the Free Fly and even sign up and get 4 vehicles to pilot in the Persistence Universe here.

    With that, let’s see what’s going on this week:

    Today sees a new episode of Calling All Devs, the show dedicated to answering the community’s most voted questions. This week, we address questions on persistence, snub craft development, landing systems and more. You can watch the episode here.

    Every third Tuesday, our Lore Team will post a News Update feature, providing new fictional insight on the Star Citizen universe. Check out previously published lore posts here.

    ‘Bugsmashers!’ will return next Wednesday on it’s regular bi-weekly schedule.

    On Thursday, we’ll welcome an all-new episode of Around the Verse with the latest info from the Development team. This week, it’s a focus on the Persistent Universe and how the new Character Customizer came to life.

    Lastly on Friday, we start off the weekend with a new episode of Reverse the Verse LIVE. Stay tuned for further information about who our special guests will be this week.

    That’s all for this week, citizens. We’ll see you in the ‘Verse!
