Pyro Now Available via Preview Channel

If you haven’t heard, there is now a technical preview channel available to certain players within the Star Citizen universe. This remains separated from the PTU, and is a very early first look at what is coming to the ‘verse soon. The preview channel will be available from November 1 to November 14 for those with access. You can view the Pyro preview channel schedule on the Spectrum forums.

Who gets access to the preview channel? Here is the official word from CIG:

We’ll pull from from Digital Goodies Pack owners, Concierge, and our most active testers, followed by our usual wave process. We’d like to include as many as possible, but the capacity and access will be determined as we go. Our backend and testing teams will be monitoring, gathering data, and ultimately making decisions based on testing needs. The ultimate goal is outlined in our original Preview Channel announcement, which is to prepare Pyro for an eventual migration to the live servers – this means we may stagger/limit entry (utilizing random selection).

Gameplay Video

Olli43 has done a great job showcasing the new Pyro preview in his play through. Check out the video to see his initial impressions and witness some first person gameplay of the new Pyro system. Keep in mind this is an early technical preview so expect there to be some bugs, issues, and unfinished elements.
