Today A star citizen Developer Cloud Imperium Games has released a major new update to their evolving game with new content and features.
Update 3.19, titled Call to Adventure, comes just two days before the start of Invictus Launch Week 2953, one of the biggest events for A star citizen fans
Here’s a breakdown of some of the update’s main features:
PVP event in Ghost Hollow
Deep in the microTech desert lie the crumbling remains of an outlaw settlement once used to forge loans. And if the rumors are true, it’s back up and running… Embrace the cold and leave civilization in pursuit of Ghost Hollow’s bounty. Just be careful, the competition for control over credit terminals will inevitably intensify.
Dismantling the wreckage became easier thanks to the salvage of components. You can now use a manual gravity beam to retrieve undamaged engines, powerplants, etc. from derelict ships and reuse or scrap them for profit. This initial version also lays the groundwork for moving and placing cargo using ship turrets, which are scheduled to be released soon in the next patch.

Stability and stability update
Alpha 3.19 includes countless backend updates that will benefit anyone exploring this poem. You can expect increased stability, more predictable item durability, and a smoother overall experience from the moment you enter Stanton.

Star Citizen presents a beautiful sprawling universe full of wonder, adventure and action.

So, starting with Alpha 3.19, a new guided mission will welcome new players into the ‘verse, showing them how to move around, use mobiGlas and control the ship in atmosphere and space.
Lorville Town Update

Lorville, one of Star Citizen’s earliest planetary locations, has undergone a major overhaul, with an all-new layout, updated buildings, and a sense of scale that has to be seen to be believed.
Improvements to the mining gameplay
Alpha 3.19 introduces a significantly improved mining experience for both solo and multiplayer players, including a new user interface that provides clearer and more detailed information about progress, risks, and more. And with upgrades to tools, ore deposits, processing, and sales, miners now need to travel the system to get the best return on investment and accept the additional risks and rewards that can bring.
Invictus launch week which starts on May 19th and ends on May 30th, will feature a “free flight event” that will allow potential players to try out the game without spending money for the duration of the event, and will be able to play with most of the ships. available in the game.
This will include opening a new ship and a new player experience could help these newcomers feel less disorientated when they first enter the game’s vast solar system, while Lorville’s revamped cityscape will have a chance to dazzle them.
