Gamescom 2016 is considered by many early backers to be a major turning point for Star Citizen’s development.

Many of the promises and ideas mentioned years ago are starting to become reality, and for the first time, we got to see the procedurally generated planet  and a new landing zone.

The official Star Citizen twitch channel saw record viewership as word spread about the new king of space sims. Citizens who were previously on the sidelines and decided it was time to jump into the game and pledge their support.

TEST Squadron, being the premier organization in Star Citizen has seen the lions share of the new arrivals choosing to make it their new home.

Membership numbers indicate several hundred new meat shields joining over the past weeks since Gamescom, so join me and welcoming our new brothers and sisters!
