Elite Dangerous stocked all the xeno rescue ship with a brand new device for dealing with caustic damage. The Caustic Sink Launcher holds 6 ejectable cartridges – and can be engineered to hold 8 – that mop up all the nasty Thargoid snot that used to eat your hull for breakfast. There’s just one catch: you have to take a ship inside the caustic Maelstroms in order to get the ingredients to buy one. Tony thinks this makes a twisted kind of sense, but at least one of us will probably disagree with him. Also, we have an unofficial release window for Update 15: April 24th-ish – assuming all goes well and there are no delays. All we know for sure is that it’s going to take at least another 7 weeks for us to figure out what the green jolly ranchers are for.
Star Citizen released Early Access Pre-Alpha Release Candidate Prototype Experimental Test Build 3.18as to the PTU. We think that’s patch 45. They’re holding a series of test sessions this weekend, presumably because they think that this puppy is ready for launch! They just need a bunch of folks to stress test this bad boy and make sure they’ve worked out all the kinks… except for, y’know, the ones on the known issues list. And also maybe the elevators and trains. And I will have mildly interesting things to say about a video I watched.
- Are you excited to be a Star Citizen vault runner?
- Did Elite break the typical MMO loot loop, where you grind to earn the gear that makes that grind easier?
