Star Citizen Arena Commander Expands; New Ship Added

The Roberts Space Industries website announces an expansion of multiplayer access to Arena Commander, saying an additional 50,000 players have been granted star citizenship to this beta Star Citizen multiplayer module (you can see the module in action in this user-created video). Also, another update introduces the Origin M50 Racer, a new spaceship they are selling for $90.00 USD (actual game and happy endings not included). Just like with sports cars, the pitch here is to go fast and exclude women: "Perfect for the mercenary who prefers speed over armor in a dogfight… or the weekend warrior looking to impress the ladies." Back to where we started, here's word on adding more multiplayer testers:

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 250,000 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.
