Capture Added to Star Citizen Arena Commander

The Roberts Space Industries website announces that they've expanded the Arena Commander multiplayer module for Star Citizen with a CTF-inspired Capture the Core mode. Word is: "This mode is very objective based, and players will do best to focus on protecting their core, escorting their-core carriers, and taking down anyone who has stolen their core. When choosing a ship, it is not only toughness one should keep in mind, but a ship’s respective speed. Different ships can serve different roles." Thanks Massively.

The playable side that you can now play vs other players in a competitive game type, that you can have an advantage in if you have lots of diffent internet-spaceships*

Are they opening up more free ship types for players to try? Or is it still just what you pay for?

*anyone can have any ship they want, they just have to pay with real money, not internet-spaceship money.
It's only with the pledge ships. Players won't be able to earn new ships in-game until the implementation of the persistent universe, which is a long way off. Players with a subscription are able to test out a limited number of ships that they don't own.

There has been some discussion on the forums as to whether CIG should open up the Arena Commander to allow players to try out other ships and it hasn't been ruled out from what I've seen. There are also numerous competitions on the forum to win ships, some official and some by organisations.

At this point the game is only playable for those who have a game package with alpha access. It's still very early in terms of testing.
