Subscriptions

Contributions that any user can make to the Star Citizen
(Redirected from Subscribers)

Subscriptions are contributions that any user can make to the Star Citizen Project. Subscriptions contribute to Star Citizen project development by funding behind-the-scenes shows like Inside Star Citizen in addition to Jump Point, the monthly digital magazine about Star Citizen.

There are two Star Citizen subscription tiers: Imperator and Centurion.[1]

Purchasing a Subscription

There are two ways to become a subscriber: through a Plan or through Passes.

A Plan is a recurring payment that you subscribe to through your Payment Processor. It can be a monthly-recurring payment or an annually (12 month) recurring one. Every time a payment is processed, your subscription is automatically expanded by one period (month or year, depending on the plan).

A Pass is a one-off payment that grants you Subscriber access for a limited time. They’re an excellent alternative if you can’t or don’t want to subscribe to a recurring payment plan. Passes don’t require a cash purchase, as you can buy them with Store Credit.

A Pass gives you exactly the same perks as a regular Plan and also contributes to your subscriber history.[1]

You can purchase a subscription, and view subscription rewards by going to: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/pledge/subscriptions

Once purchased, a subscription will bill you every month on the same date as the first purchasing date.

You can cancel a subscription any time, by going to Account > Settings > Billing and Subscription Tab, and clicking "Cancel Subscription."

Additional information can be found on the RSI Subscriptions FAQ.

Subscribers store

The Subscriber store or "Subscriber Exclusive" store is a section of the Pledge Store that lists the items only available to purchase as a subscriber. These items include all past and current subscriber rewards that can be purchased retroactively, and without limit in quantity. These items can also be gifted after purchase.
