Happy Monday, everyone!
It’s CitizenCon week! The team is on their way to Los Angeles to prepare for our biggest show yet, and we’re so excited to see all of you in-person again! Panels are rehearsing, booths are being set up, and the air is starting to fill with electricity as CitizenCon takes shape before we kick things off on Saturday, October 21. Here’s some of the things attendees can look forward to:
Stanton Theater (Main Stage): The place to be for opening/closing ceremonies, and a healthy list of rich presentations from the development team directly. There’s never been a better time to say “you won’t want to miss it!”.The Future of StarEngine: From pixel to persistent universe and everything in-between, join us as we showcase the power and depth of StarEngine, enabling the seamless scale that push our games to the cutting edge of the industry, technology, and beyond.Checkmate Station: The Pyro-themed show floor (Checkmate Station) is filled with curious corners, inviting alleyways, and immersive recreations of in-game environments to set the stage for the perfect picture! In addition to the theming there will be photo opportunities, and the belle of the ball – a 1:1 scale rideable Drake Dragonfly, dressed in the Digital Goodies Pack livery! Meet the Community: The show floor contains tight tunnels of booths, operated by community members themselves, as well as larger, open social spaces where you can meet up, relax, and plan your activities for the day. Content creators of all sizes will be organizing in-person meetups with their communities throughout the show at the dedicated Content Creator Corner. Outside of the cosplay competition on the Main Stage many attendees will be wearing their cosplay throughout the show. Be sure to ask before taking a picture!Enjoy the Competition: Our friends at ATMO Esports are hosting the first ever CitizenCon invitational (Fight or Flight) live from the showfloor! Forecast is looking sunny with a chance of mayhem!Q&A with CIG Developers: Following the presentations, you can look forward to smaller gatherings with presenters in the General Lounge. These will be scheduled throughout the show, and you’re encouraged to arrive early to save space! (Check your swag bag upon arrival for a printed schedule!)
Keep an eye out on our social media channels (Twitter, Instagram, TikTok) for sneak peeks and teasers leading up to the event! Don’t forget to share all your event photos using the official hashtag: #CitizenCon2953. We’ll be re-sharing our favorites!
Also in case you missed it, the skies above Stanton became quite a bit more thunderous last week! The Anvil F8C Lightning has officially made its debut, with a twist! Check out our landing page for info on how to get a license to bring one home, and be on the lookout! The elusive Platinum License is still out in the wild waiting to be found this week.
Now, let’s see what’s going on this week:
Thursday our Day of the Vara celebrations continue as Gun Rush returns to Arena Commander, but a bit more spooky! Got a bone to pick? Log in and sternum if you got ’em.
Friday, you’ll receive our weekly RSI Newsletter delivered to your inbox.
And of course, Saturday and Sunday we’re in Los Angeles and live on Twitch with CitizenCon 2953! We can’t wait to see you there!
