'Star Citizen' Open for Free Fly This Weekend

by Rainier on April 13, 2018 @ 6:29 p.m. PDT

Star Citizen features high quality cutting-edge visuals and technology, a virtual world that is immersive and detailed, a sophisticated storyline that is wide in scope and visceral, heart-pounding space combat.

Star Citizen delivers the next generation of space flight simulation gaming, combining FPS (First Person Shooter) combat and persistent MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) gameplay to create a living, breathing first person universe capable of truly unlimited gameplay experiences. In addition, through the game's advanced Newtonian physics engine, Star Citizen enables players to experience an unparalleled space sim flying experience with ship control, performance and response calculated based on dozens of dynamically generated physics based variables.

Star Citizen will not require a subscription, and not be free-to-play, it will will be available for a one-time purchase. And while players will be able to play in the Star Citizen universe for free, there will also be virtual items available for purchase with in-game credits so players can customize their ships and other items.

Roberts Space Industries is offering up a Free Fly event this weekend for everyone to try out Star Citizen for free. We announced the event a few minutes ago. It will last through Monday evening. In order to play the recently released Star Citizen Alpha 3.1, you normally would need to pledge for one of our starter packages. But during this limited time, RSI is giving prospective Citizens the chance to get into the ‘verse and take some of our ships and vehicles, both new and iconic, for a complementary spin.

Star Citizen is a massively multiplayer space sim that lets you explore a seamless persistent universe chock full of potential exploits, breathless adventures, and harrowing encounters. You’ll feel the white-knuckle thrill of combat, behold the weird majesty of alien moons, interact with a variety of fascinating characters, and face the unique challenge of building a life in space, in the year 2948.

While the Alpha version of the game is available to download and play now, Star Citizen is currently in active development, with additional features and updates being released as the process continues.

To begin your adventure, you would normally pledge for one of our starter packages, which gets you a user-friendly ship and digital game access. But for a limited time, we’re giving prospective Citizens the chance to get into the ‘verse and take some of our ships and vehicles, both new and iconic, for a complimentary spin. So, what are you waiting for, rookie? Jump in the cockpit, fire her up, and start flying.

Get into Star Citizen, April 13-16, 2018 for FREE!

With the access code below, you’ll be able to explore the Star Citizen Universe in a number of ships and vehicles: Get into the fight with the Mustang, enjoy the versatility of the trusty Aurora MR, haul freight like a pro (or steal it like a pirate) with the Cutlass Black, and tear it up planetside in the newly released Cyclone.

The code will also grant you access to Arena Commander, where you can hone your dogfighting skills, and Star Marine, where you can engage in intense FPS action. Simply follow the steps outlined below, and we’ll see you in the ‘verse.
