    Hello everyone,

    Alpha 3.5 is almost ready for prime time. Not sure what our latest patch entails? Check out the New Features and Ships page.

    As a reminder: we announced the removal of $0 CCUs last Wednesday and this week, we’ll begin to roll out phase one with the removal of the ability to obtain any additional $0 CCUs on April 3rd.

    Furthermore, in an effort to revamp our selection of physical merchandise, we recently put a call out on Spectrum to see what kind of items you wanted to see in the store. After tirelessly collating your responses, it has become very clear what you’ve been clamoring for, and we are super excited to announce our first new merchandise offerings of 2019.

    Now, let’s see what’s going on this week:

    On Tuesday, the Lore Team will bring us a new Galactic Guide article detailing the Kallis system, a sanctuary for research and discovery.

    Keep an eye out on Wednesday for the Drake Corsair Q&A. We collected your top-voted questions about Drake’s latest ship and will publish the answers as a Comm-Link. Check out previously released Q&A’s here.

    Thursday, won’t see an episode of Around the Verse, as the show will take a break for 3 weeks after each patch release, as communicated in last week’s episode.

    Friday sees a Roadmap update and the RSI Newsletter delivered right to your inbox. We also welcome a new episode of Reverse the Verse at 12pm Pacific, which broadcasts LIVE on our Star Citizen Channel. This time we’ll talk about the Facial Customization feature with Sean Tracy and members of the Technical Art Team. Keep an eye out on Spectrum for a question gathering thread.

    On Sunday, we’re looking forward to meeting the Italian Community at a BarCitizen in Milan. If you’re in the area, stop by the ‘Forgia degli Eroi’ to say ciao!, play the game, meet some developers, and get your hands on some exclusive swag!

    See you in the ‘verse!
