This week on the Star Citizen Week in Review… News!

Which realistically is the same thing we cover every week in the Week in Review, but hey! That’s a detail.

10 for the Chairman 79

[6:17] Q: Since it was mentioned before, will we still get the chance to see Pirate Swarm in Arena Commander?

A:  Yes, after developing and balancing the game’s functionality we plan on adding more modes.

[11:38] Q: As there is no faster than light communication is it possible for a criminal to outrun their wanted status by jumping to another system?

A: Yes. Even though players can communicate instantaneous we will ensure that all the game systems themselves propagate properly. Therefore you could commit a crime in one system, jump to another system and before your wanted status has reached it. We have also introduced the fundamentals of reputation management in 2.2: you can reduce your wanted level in Security Post Kareah and taking down/putting up satellites determines if there is coverage in an area.

[16:53] Q: Will it be possible to play Squadron 42 without taking part in the FPS parts?

A: Squadron 42’s gameplay is a blend of ship combat and on-foot combat. It’s primarily flying missions – there will be missions where you land, have to EVA or get stuck somewhere. There won’t be an option to not participate in FPS but do the other things, it’s a holistic experience. You won’t need to be the best FPS player to play. It’s going to be more immersive than any past Wing Commanders.

Other The Relay articles from the week!

Erris on Space Games

In this article, Erris runs through as many of the recent currently available / currently in development space games as possible. There are quite a few of them.

MVP The Relayterview with The Relay

A few weeks ago, The Relay won CIG’s MVP on AtV (that’s a lot of acronyms, sorry). Psylence sits down with Nehkara and Canadian Syrup to talk about the evolution of The Relay’s transcripts, as part of our weekly spotlight on AtV MVP winners!

Taking your Dogfighting to the Next Level

This week Fourth Oracle lays down some wisdom on how to dogfight better. It’s a quick look, but still should be a good help to anyone starting out in the ‘Verse!

This week in Fiction!

Embedded: Part I

The Call

 

And that’s all from The Relay this week! As always, all of The Relay’s content is put together by our team of volunteers. If you’d like to support us, or get involved, all support goes towards paying for server costs, and sending The Relay staff to events such as Gamescom and CitizenCon, to cover Star Citizen.

Cheers, and we’ll see you in the ‘Verse
