Greetings fellow gamers! Star Citizen has just launched version 2.4 of their alpha testing game client, which introduces for the very first time, persistence in the Star Citizen Universe! This includes the first introduction of in-game currency (called Alpha United Earth Credits or aUEC for short) which can be earned by completing missions. You can then use these credits to purchase items from shops such as clothing, armour and weapons. Here are some screenshots of what you can expect when you first log into Star Citizen now. Enjoy!
On a final note, even though Star Citizen’s graphics and gameplay are already comparable with most modern FPS and Space Simulations available now, the game is still very much in Alpha testing phase, so do expect occasional disconnects, crashes and all manners of bugs and glitches at this point in time. Please manage your expectations when playing this game at such an early stage.
Thank you for taking the time to read this blog post. If you would like to join us in exploring Star Citizen or have some questions to ask, feel free to contact any of our admins or join us in Slack. We look forward to seeing you in the Verse real soon!
