A brace of updates from Star Citizen discuss concepting new ship weapons, as well as detailing a new map.

The first bit of news involves their recent live stream in which Aleksandras Akstinas from the Weapon Concept Team walks through his process creating multiple ship weapons. There’s also a Q&A involved. Check out that video below:

A blog post from their site details a new map, called The Good Doctor. The map is actually set up as a training sim based on lore events which ended pretty badly. The map is actually brightly lit and features very lived-in conditions.

“We’ve designed The Good Doctor specifically to facilitate fast, frantic, close quarters combat, creating an intense gameplay experience thus far unexplored in Star Marine, requiring players to employ specific tactics, navigating a hellish maze of rooms and buildings during battle, using the environment to tactical ends, or being overwhelmed by it.”
