Last week on Around the Verse we announced that Object Container Streaming and 3.3 were split into multiple development branches, and that we’ll deliver Alpha 3.3 for all on October 10, with OCS coming with a later patch currently titled 3.3.5. The roadmap update made last Friday now also reflects those changes and displays a 3.3.5 column featuring OCS and its dependent cards.
Also last week, Bounty Hunters rallied across the ‘verse to take down criminal scum, highlighting their victories in a screenshot contest on Twitter. Within 24 hours we received over 500 entries, showcasing that the hunt was definitely on. A big thank you to everyone who participated, and congratulations to our winning entries.
Alongside the screenshot contest, we also brought back a handful of the verse’s most devastating brawlers, available for all your mercenary needs. As a reminder, this promotion ends tonight!
One of the heavy hitting ships we made available during this promotion is the Aegis Hammerhead, scheduled for release in Alpha 3.3. You can find everything you need to know about this turret enthusiast’s dream in our latest episode of Ship Shape, with a follow-up RTV featuring Designers Adam Parker, John Crewe, and ship artist Calvin Williams.
Lastly, big shout-out to everyone who attended Con42 this weekend. Team members fortunate enough to attend had loads of fun. Congratulations to the organizers who put on such a successful community event.
And with that, let’s see what’s going on this week:
Every week on Calling All Devs, designers, engineers, and other developers from our five offices around the world answer backer questions submitted on Spectrum and voted for by YOU. This week we we talk about mining on foot, stealing data, the RSI Lynx Rover and more. Subscribe to our YouTube channel and turn on the notifications to be amongst the first to watch!
On Tuesday, the Lore Team will publish their weekly lore post. This week, we’ll see part one of “Phantom Bounty”, a story previously released in Jump Point 3.1. You can also find all previously published lore posts here.
