Three months since the release of the Alpha 3.5 update, Star Citizen Alpha 3.6 comes with a complete overhaul of the law and crime systems, hover mode for ships and vehicles, a few new vehicles/ships and weapons, as well as illegal style delivery missions for prohibited and stolen goods. The 3.7 update is expected to arrive in September.

With almost US$230,000,000 raised by mid-November 2018, Star Citizen is one of the highest-funded crowdfunding projects so far — according to this incomplete list by Wikipedia. Although its development began way back in 2011 and was supposed to launch in 2014, this multiplayer space trading and combat title is still stuck in Alpha. Fortunately, updates are now coming at a steady pace and one can only hope that the full launch will arrive before the end of 2020.

Star Citizen Alpha 3.6 comes three months after its predecessor and its highlights include a complete overhaul of the law and crime systems, additional crimestat hacking locations and terminals — alongside an updated hacking system, improved head tracking support, illegal style delivery missions for prohibited and stolen goods, hover mode for ships and vehicles, a new ship/vehicle/weapon — Kruger Intergalactic P-72 Archimedes/Anvil Ballista/MaxOx Neutron Repeaters, as well as many minor tweaks, fixes, and reworked elements.

To download the update, a new launcher must be installed first (go to this page to get it). The next two major content updates for Star Citizen Alpha, namely 3.7 and 3.8, are expected to arrive in September and December.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
