Star Citizen Free Fly Week Until April 22

After another patch to introduce more ships to the line-up of flyable ships in Star Citizen, Cloud Imperium Games have started another Free Fly Week, along with testing some of the new back-end software for handling servers.

If you are still unsure about the game, or wondering where it has gotten to in the just over 3 years since work started, these weeks allow you to see, even if you have already gotten your nice little Aurora or Mustang, you can test out other ships.

For a basic guide, the Subreddit has made a handy post that explains a lot of stuff. If you don’t have a Reddit account and have problems, there is a high chance it has already been asked there.

With Star Citizen and Squadron 42 looking sooo good after only 3 years, one can dream how good it will be in another 4, and at that point, the game will have been in development for about the same as most big games.

Official Press Release

From time to time we like to open Star Citizen up to our fans, and provide access to ships they might not otherwise own. This is not only a great chance for players to try new ships out, but it helps provide additional testing for those ships, too!

In addition, it can be a great way to introduce new players to the growing universe of Star Citizen as well. For the next week until April 25th, we’ve enabled Free Fly access to all accounts in celebration of PAX East. While we won’t be there this year in person, any chance to celebrate Star Citizen sounds like a good idea to us! For the next week, anyone with a Star Citizen account will have access to the Aurora LN, the F7C Hornet, and the Mustang Delta. This Free Fly event gives new players access to three unique parts of the Star Citizen experience:

  • Star Citizen Alpha 2.3.1 – Also known as Crusader or the “mini-PU,” this is the nucleus of the world we’re building! Featuring multiple space stations and environments, scripted missions, places to explore and more, Alpha 2.3.1 is your first look at a much larger universe!
  • Arena Commander – Arena Commander is a ‘game within a game’ that we’ve used to develop our flight mechanics and ship combat balance. Take on human opponents or an AI swarm in single seat fighter.
  • Social Module – Interact with other players while you explore our first landing zone, ArcCorp! The Social Module is intended as a starting point for our world building,

You can register for an account here to get started. If you already have an account from a previous Free Fly, you’re all set! Just log in via the Star Citizen launcher and we’ll see you in the ‘Verse!
