Star Citizen published their weekly newsletter that lets players know that Alpha 2.6.1 has been deployed that most notably brings multi-region servers. In addition, a number of bug fixes targeting Star Marine, Arena Commander and Crusader, as well as feature enhancements have been added. Also the team has released Spectrum - a new hub for chat, forums and community.
The work is still in progress on Squadron 42, features for 3.0 and much more.
As always, the letter also contains top stories of the week, leaderboards and updated production schedule.
You can read more about patch 2.6.1 on the Star Citizen site.
