If you were hoping to get your hands on Arena Commander V0.9 this weekend, you've probably guessed by now that that's not happening. Star Citizen's
website published an update blurb that details the reasons behind the delay.
It's also worth reading if you're a casual SC
follower and weren't aware of all the stuff that 0.9 will bring to backers. There's the new Murray Cup racing map and game mode, a co-op Vanduul Swarm mode, and two new flyable ships (the M50 and the 350R). The update also features Star Citizen's
first stab at private match functionality and a few other bells and whistles.
says that it "will be working around the globe through the holiday weekend to deliver on the promise of V0.9."
