Star Citizen Update – Pyro – Vehicle Tractor Beams – Master Modes – FreeFly

Welcome to the Star Citizen News, it’s the week ending the 9th of July, we are in the middle of the Foundation Festival, we have had the Dev Monthly Reports for both SQ and SC’s PU, there are new silly sub flair items available let’s jump in…

From the SC Newsletter

The Foundation Festival is in full swing! This month-long event is aimed at building a stronger, Star Citizen community. 

Take advantage of the Free Fly, earn massive rewards by participating in the Guide System, refer a friend to get a Greycat STV with electric-green paint, and much more!

The FF is awesome as it gives all players new and old access to 12 ships until the 17th the FF however continues until the end of the month.

There’s a wealth of in-game wearables, armour, weapons, and ship paints to unlock as you use the Guide System. Whether you’re helping a new pilot, learning the ropes, or exploring an unfamiliar career, each session will grant you a new reward.

If you are interested in getting involved in that freefly you can just make a SC account and then visit the FF Page. I have a full focused video on all of what the foundation festival has to offer, which i’ll link below!

In Star Citizen Live they talked about the role of a producer in Star Citizen and the Gaming Industry in general… there wasn’t much in the way of tangible Star Citizen specific development info here tho.

There was no ISC as it’s on break until the 27th July.

July Sub Flare

This month’s Flair is a collection of cute mugs commemorating some of the ‘verse’s favourite cartoon characters, including Finley the Stormwal for centurions & imperators, Star Kitten for imperators, and the Big Benny’s mascot one purchasable in the sub shop. 

These will be added to the in game loot pool in around 3 months time.
