Star Citizen Releases Arena Commander 1.0
Arena Commander 1.0 is a beginning, not an ending.
Star Citizen has released version 1.0 of its Arena Commander module, Wing Commander creator and Cloud Imperium Games founder Chris Roberts has announced.
The 1.0 update adds the long-awaited lobby system and friends system, more than triples the number of flyable ships, and introduces a number of graphical and gameplay improvements.
"I would like to stress that today’s release of Arena Commander 1.0 is a beginning, not an ending," Roberts said. "This milestone does not denote the completion of Arena Commander, it kicks off an even more significant phase of its development."
The Arena Commander module is a multiplayer-focused piece of Star Citizen where players can battle each other in a variety of modes. It gives them a feel for how it looks and controls, but in no way represents the full scope of Star Citizen’s grand ambitions. So far, it's only available to backers.
