Cloud Imperium’s Star Citizen Dogfighting Module was delayed at the end of last year and there was no word as to when it would be revealed.
Today we have news that this major update for backers will be revealed at PAX East which runs 11-13 April. The module will then be released to players “shortly after that reveal” according to Cloud Imperium.
The module was delayed while the team worked on the server infrastructure which is actually being put online this week for the very first time. This is a big step for the game and the development team who will start testing the persistent universe.
This week they have built the system cluster which is now starting to be tested to determine lag and instance size over an Internet connection instead of LAN which was demonstrated back in December.
Cloud Imperium think that by the time the Star Citizen Dogfighting Module is released there could potentially be half a million people ready to test it when it launches.
