Star Citizen Alpha 2.1 Available! - Jan. 16, 2016, 10:11 a.m.
We are excited to announce that Star Citizen Alpha 2.1.0 is now available on the Live server for all players via the Star Citizen launcher. Alpha 2.1 features an array of bug fixes and balance updates aimed at enhancing the Star Citizen experience. Thanks to expert testing from backers on the PTU, we’ve been able to significantly improve the experience and stability of Star Citizen from the December 2.0 release. We’d like to thank everyone in the community who contributed their time and effort to making this patch happen!
In addition to these fixes, Alpha 2.1 features two new flyable ships in Crusader: the MISC Freelancer and the Aegis Vanguard Warden. (Surprise!) The Aegis Sabre is now hangar ready, for those eager to explore their brand new space superiority fighters! There’s more to discover in Crusader as well, including a new type of mission surrounding the Covalex Shipping hub. You can find a complete list of updates, fixes, balance changes and more in the full patch notes.
New Ships from Aegis
Missed out on your chance to pick up a Vanguard or a Sabre? We’re making both ships available for the next week for anyone interested in picking one up for Alpha 2.1! The Vanguard is now flight ready, and the Sabre will appear in the Hangar. For anyone interested in the full squadron, we’ve created a limited edition pack that includes both ships with a small discount.
