The 2952 edition of the Invictus Launch Week is held at Vision Center, Orison, Crusader from May 20 until 31, 2952.
Invictus Launch Week is a yearly recurring event organized by the United Empire of Earth Navy (UEEN) which marks the beginning of the new recruitment year. It is an official holiday in the UEE.
During the event there is:
- A Free-Fly event allowing users without a Game package to play the game for free.
- Show floors that display aerospace and defense manufacturers' work designed for the military.
- Watch UEE Naval fleet flyby's through the Stanton system.
- Take a tour of an in-service Javelin destroyer.
- Daily screenshot contests running on spectrum.
- A racing contest where players must use a Pisces to race through the Orison platforms.
Stock limited sale schedule
The event also featured sales of stock limited ships on the Pledge Store. These ships are considered 'exclusive' and are therefore only sold in limited quantities over a small period of time. Each stock-limited ship is limited to 1 per account and will be available in three waves:

Showcases are available at Vision Center, where they rotate different ship brands each several days. All of the ships on display on these days are also available to rent for free for 48 hours.
Javelin tour and fleet flyby
During Invictus Launch Week, you can tour an in-service Javelin destroyer, the UEES War Hammer. The Javelin moves through Stanton, so everyone has a chance to enjoy the tour.
The tour will stop at the following locations, in order:
- Everus Harbor - Hurston
- August Dunlow Spaceport - Orison
- Port Tressler - microTech
- Baijini Point - ArcCorp
The Navy will also make their way through Stanton. RSI Bengal, Aegis Idris, and other destroyers are among the ships that make up the big fleet.
They will be flying through at these space stations:
At the event, you were able to purchase manufacturer-specific clothing, as well as several Invictus branded items, and paints from the Pledge store.
From pledge store:
- Avenger "Invictus Blue And Gold" paint
- Gladius: "Invictus Blue and Gold" paint
- Retaliator: "Invictus Blue and Gold" paint
- Vanguard: "Invictus Blue and Gold" paint
- Hawk: "Invictus Blue and Gold" paint
- Hornet: "Invictus Blue and Gold" paint
- Hercules: "Invictus Blue and Gold" paint
- Reliant: "Invictus Blue and Gold" paint
- 100 Series: "Invictus Blue and Gold" paint
- Cyclone: "Invictus Blue and Gold" paint
- C8(X) Pisces: "Invictus Blue & Gold" paint
- This paint was only obtainable in the pledge store by buying a "C8X Pisces Invictus Starter Pack", a game package, for US$45. It is unclear how else this paint was obtained. But players reported it being in their in-game inventory without buying it, supposedly because the ship was also on a free loan for everyone to be used in the Dunlow Derby for the duration of the event. There is no official confirmation about this theory.
Patch Star Citizen Alpha 3.17.1 was published to the LIVE branch the day before the event was starting, on May 19. The event then started on the 20th with a few problems, such as not being able to login, getting long login queues before being able to play, character reset queues, ships duplicating or in-game social services being down. CIG developers were quick to respond, fixing the worst issues, but a "degraded performance" warning was still active on the status page. Throughout the week, there were still occasional issues, most notably social services often being down. This kept players from seeing or using their friends list, unable to make parties, and the in-game global chat channel would also be unavailable.
