Roberts Space Industries website announces the Public Test Universe is now
available to all backers of Star Citizen, Cloud Imperium's space combat
game. Here's word:
Get ready to join the Public Test Universe (PTU.)
During the lead up to Arena Commander 1.0, we gave a limited number of backers
access to what we call the PTU, a version of the game that offers experimental
versions of upcoming patches. Starting today, all Star Citizen backers have
access to the PTU and with it access to test a build of Arena Commander 1.0.1.
Please note that the PTU is not for the faint of heart: unlike standard Arena
Commander, you’re one of the first people testing a new build which can often be
unstable or otherwise non-functional. If you’re serious about helping us test
Star Citizen, accessing the PTU and reporting bugs on the forums is one of the
biggest services you can provide… but if you’re looking for a clean dogfight,
you may want to stick to the standard build. You can report bugs discovered in
here, or provide feedback on the PTU itself

That pretty much sums up what bugs me about the way they develop this game. Time will tell and I for one really hope they can pull it off and make an amazing game because I absolutely love the genre, but I sure dislike their put the cart before the horse approach.
