Planetside is used to describe the mechanics and systems around landing on planetary and celestial bodies and interacting with the environment. Players may land on any ship in their current star system with many ships, though some more populated planets will have designated landing zones.
Currently, players can explore ArcCorp as part of the social module released for the Star Citizen Alpha. Here, players can interact with each with using chat, emotes, and other actions. The Social Module is designed to be the foundation of future additions to the Persistent Universe.
