Star Citizen Alpha 3.3.5 details.

Those of you who backed Star Citizen will be glad to hear that Cloud Imperium has finally released Star Citizen Alpha 3.3.5. So what does this version have to offer? One of the most important additions is planet Hurston, which is much larger than the moons that we could explore so far. Moreover, the planet has several biomes, as well as several outposts or Hurston Mining Centers. Speaking of moons, this version of Star Citizen adds Aberdeen, Magda, Arial, and Ita, all of which have their own outposts. We should also mention the Lorville city area, which only has a single legal landing zone. Players who attempt to fly over residential areas will receive HUD warnings, visual indicators, and audio alerts.

What about the ships?

The developers updated several ship and vehicle headlights in order to enhance projection. They also corrected the sizes of quantum drivers on several ships, and they addressed click firing issues that skipped recoil on some weapons. The Star Citizen client will download Alpha 3.3.5 automatically next time you start it. You can find a complete changelog for this new version of the game below.

Star Citizen Alpha 3.3.5 Release Notes


  • Added: New Planet – Hurston.
Hurston is the first planetary location and as such is considerably larger than moons and has varied biomes.  Additionally, you will found several outposts, labeled HMC (Hurston Mining Centers) scattered about the surface.
  • Added: New Moons – Aberdeen, Magda, Arial, and Ita and populated them with a handful of outposts.
  • Seven Additional rest stops.
  • Added: New Major Landing Zone – Lorville
Lorville is a large city area and as such only has one legal area for landing and port entry.  Space above residential and commercial areas are protected by a no-fly zone.  Players will be warned when they are entering that zone via HUD warnings, visual indicators, and increasing audio alerts. If they continue into the zone, their ship will be destroyed.  The city has a bar with an interactive bartender and a personal equipment shop (Tammany and Sons) that includes an early implementation of the multi-tool. To move around the city, there is a train style transit system and signs to help guide the way.
  • Added: Hurston clothing/armor variants including variants of the Odyssey II flight suit and the Virgil TrueDef-Pro Armor.
  • Players now have expanded interactions with some items.
