Star Citizen will not require a subscription not be free-to-play, it will will be available for a one-time purchase. And while players will be able to play in the Star Citizen universe for free, there will also be virtual items available for purchase with in-game credits so players can customize their ships and other items.
Last Wednesday we published the long-awaited Star Citizen 12.5 patch aimed at improving Arena Commander’s multiplayer experience. For the past two days, we’ve been monitoring our servers, reviewing feedback and observing players around the world.
And it’s all looking good! In addition to eliminating rubber-banding, it looks like the 12.5 fixes have dramatically increased the Arena Commander experience. Today, we made some additional fixes to our server from that data. We’re now comfortable beginning to expand the multiplayer rollout again!
As we head into the weekend, we are expanding the multiplayer base by 50,000 additional Citizens. If your Citizen Number is 350,000 or below, you will now have access to Arena Commander’s multiplayer modes. The team will sit down next week to review the data and make a call on a larger expansion.
This post will be updated as additional players are invited.
