'Star Citizen' Kicks off Two Week Fly Free Event

by Rainier on Sept. 9, 2020 @ 10:29 a.m. PDT

Star Citizen is an epic experience where players can fly highly detailed space ships, explore life-sized planets, battle on foot through massive space stations, and discover adventure in an ever-expanding and changing galaxy of unmatched scale.

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.

In recognition of the second annual Ship Showdown event -- where veteran pilots celebrate their favorite vessels in the verse -- Cloud Imperium Games is launching a special two-week “Free Fly” event for new players. Starting today and running until September 23, 2020, new players will have the rare opportunity to join the expanding universe in Star Citizen and test pilot the community’s “Top 16” favorite ships free of charge.

New pilots can fly for free in Star Citizen in celebration of the second annual Ship Showdown event. Choose from the “Top 16” most-voted-on ships selected by the Star Citizen community as prime representatives of the best and most iconic spacecraft in the game. During the Ship Showdown Free Fly celebration, new players can also look forward to special discounts on starter ship packs and a limited-time referral bonus granting a P-52 Merlin for players that refer a friend to Star Citizen. Boasting a centerline Gatling cannon and a Lightning Power engine, the Merlin is a fast, maneuverable ship that packs a surprising punch!

Ideal for racing, local reconnaissance, and fast combat.

The Free Fly event for Star Citizen runs from 4 p.m. UTC September 9, 2020 through to 11:59 p.m. UTC September 23, 2020.

New pilots ready to step into the cockpit for the Star Citizen Free Fly event can get started on their journey by heading to the Ship Showdown Free Fly page at the official Roberts Space Industries website.
