Great news for all Star Citizen backers as the highly anticipated Alpha 3.0 is currently available on the Public Test Server to everyone. This basically means that everyone who has backed up this project will be able to test the alpha 3.0 version of the game.
Cloud Imperium initially released Star Citizen Alpha 3.0 to all Evocati Test Flight volunteer members back in October. And after two and a half months, the team decided to open its gates to all backers.
Star Citizen Alpha 3.0 features planetary landings, persistent universe content, a new back-end item system, implementation of commodities, trading, automated cargo buy/sell kiosks, and, indirectly, piracy, as well as network improvements and user interface enhancements.
You can download the latest Star Citizen launcher from here.
PC gamers will also have to copy their account to PTU (https://robertsspaceindustries.com/account/copy/ptu). After doing that, backers will get their temporary PTU password delivered in email.
It’s worth noting that Cloud Imperium will showcase later today Star Citizen’s single-player portion, Squadron 42. Squadron 42’s presentation was scheduled for yesterday, however, Cloud Imperium faced some technical issues. Cloud Imperium will live-stream this presentation, so expect to see more gameplay action from it!
Star Citizen Alpha 3.0 is now available to all backers!
