Latest Star Citizen Alpha Update Brings New PvP Event

Cloud Imperium Games has announced the release of Alpha 3.16 for Star Citizen. The update brings a host of new content into the game including a new PvP event called Jumptown 2.0 that was inspired by the original Jumptown event. In addition, players will find grav-lev improvements, the new Drake Cutlass Steel ship, and much more.

  • Jumptown 2.0: Inspired by the popular PvP community event where players waged war over valuable drug resources, Jumptown 2.0 seeks to introduce the excitement and chaos of largescale PvP ground conflicts in Star Citizen. During this event, both Lawful and Criminal players will race to battle over control of valuable drug crates at various outposts in the Stanton system.
  • Drake Cutlass Steel: This dropship variant of the Drake Cutlass replaces cargo capacity with room for 18 jump seats to transport troops to the frontlines of battle, along with a variety of weaponry, including door-mounted guns, manned and remote turrets, ballistic Gatling guns, laser repeaters, and a powerful payload of missiles.
  • Grav-Lev Physics Rework: Hoverbikes will see major improvements following a significant rework of the flight and driving model for grav-lev vehicles. The result is improved handling, stability, and a far better experience for hoverbikes moving forward.
  • Atmospheric Bounties: Bounty hunters can now pursue contracts above the caves on microTech, outposts on ArcCorp, and more with new bounties across Stanton, including targets hiding in-atmosphere across all of the system’s major planets.

The update rounds out the 2021 development cycle that developers describe as “another fantastic year”. The team is already looking ahead to January when more PvE-centric content will be added.
