Star Citizen: Alpha 3.19 Officially Launches on Live Servers

With a surprisingly quick turnaround time compared to the more time consuming release of its previous alpha build, Cloud Imperium Games has rolled out Star Citizen Alpha 3.19 to all backers on the live servers.

Just in time for the annual Invictus Launch Week festivities, an in-game event which celebrates the militaristic elements of humanity spreading across the stars, this update comes with a number of quality of life improvements, enhancements to the salvaging system, updates to Lorville, and arguably the most importantly, an improved New Player Experience. More about the key promoted features of Star Citizen Alpha 3.19 can be found below:

PVP Event at Ghost Hollow

Deep in the microTech wilderness lies the crumbling remains of an outlaw settlement once used for counterfeiting credits. And, if the rumors are true, it’s back up and running…

Embrace the cold and leave civilization behind in pursuit of Ghost Hollow’s bounty. Just be careful, competition for control of the credit terminals is bound to get heated.

New Component Salvage

Ripping wrecks apart just got easier thanks to component salvage. Now, you can use the hand-held tractor beam to remove intact engines, powerplants, and more from abandoned ships and reuse them or scrap them for profit.

This initial version also lays the foundation for moving and placing cargo via ship turrets, which is planned for release soon in a coming patch.

New Salvage Missions

Waste not, want not. Make a career salvaging destroyed or abandoned vehicles across the ‘verse with all-new salvage missions.

Whether you play by the rules and only claim what’s yours, risk it all for a vulnerable haul, or break into secure space to take what you can, there’s serious money to be made in the Salvage game.

Stability & Persistence Upgrades

Alpha 3.19 includes countless backend upgrades that will benefit everyone exploring the ‘verse.

You can expect increased stability, more predictable item persistence, and a smoother overall experience from the second you enter Stanton.

Improved New Player Experience

Star Citizen features a beautiful sprawling universe full of wonder, adventure, and action. However, it’s easy for new citizens to feel overwhelmed as they take their first steps into life in the 30th century.  

So, from Alpha 3.19, a whole-new guided mission will welcome new players to the ‘verse, including showing them how to get around, use the mobiGlas, and fly a ship in atmosphere and in space.  

Lorville City Upgrade

Jump to Hurston and set a course for the industrial city of Lorville, a brutalist behemoth nestled in the remains of long-abandoned mines and weapons testing sites.

One of Star Citizen’s earliest planetary locations, Lorville has been given a huge overhaul, with an all-new layout, revamped buildings, and a sense of scale that must be seen to be believed.

Mining Gameplay Enhancements

Alpha 3.19 introduces a much-improved mining experience for solo and multi-crew players alike, including a new UI that gives clearer, more detailed information on progress, risks, and more.

And with updates to tools, ore deposits, refining, and selling, miners must now travel the system to get the best return on investment and embrace the added risks and rewards that may bring.

A full Alpha 3.19.0 patch notes can be found on the following page.

In development by Cloud Imperium Games and their studios across North America and Europe, Star Citizen is being helmed by Wing Commander (1990s) creator Chris Roberts. The game has currently been in a long-term alpha phase with no confirmed release date. Despite this, the studio has raised more than half a billion USD through on-going crowdfunding. Please keep in mind should you decide to purchase towards Star Citizen, that this is an incomplete project and that you are pledging towards an extended crowdfunding campaign with no 100% guarantee of a finished product.
