The Dogfighting Module is a stage of Star Citizen development that was released to the community on June 4, 2014. It was previously expected to be released in the late May 2014. It allow players to fight against other players and AI in a deathmatch-style combat system.
On May 16, 2014, Chris Roberts announced that Arena Commander was expected to be released around May 29, 2014, based on a best possible projection.
