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
introduces the Origin M50 Racer, a new spaceship they
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.
