V0.9

(Citizen Star News) - 2014-09-12 - After a long wait, and a slipped partial release last night. Arena Commander v0.9 and Star Citizen Patch 13 is now officially available.

Members of the GeekDomo "Bearded Warriors and Amazon Princesses" Twitch "Tribe", notably Bod699 and WTFOSAURUS managed to snag a leaked partial release and broadcast previews over the last 12 hours or so, but now we can all have the real thing.

Start your launchers!

Also officially launched today, the M50 commercial!

And check out the Pledge Store for access to the new racers. (No, apparently you don't get a loaner racer.)

Update - 2014-08-16 - Friend of the Citizen Star, Byronyk, has produced a watchable video of the livestream from the broken stream captures, with commentary and links to help fill the missing bits: Star Citizen - Gamescom 2014 Live Stream. Thank you, good sir!

Updated with video of Multicrew Demo by Kingnewbs.


 (Citizen Star News) - 2014-08-15 - The long awaited Star Citizen event at Gamescom 2014 (Cologne, Germany) was mind-blowingly impressive. Chris Roberts ambition with the game is starting to show real results.

There were a few technical problems, largely difficulty keeping up the stream, seemed to be a Twitch problem as much as CIG. (Twitch support reported general problems during the event.)
