Try Star Citizen for Free

The Roberts Space Industries website announces the opportunity for everyone to check out progress on Star Citizen during a free fly event for the next week in the space combat game:
On the fence about Star Citizen? Why not give it a try and see what we’re building! For the next week, we’re enable Free Fly access to all accounts… which means that anyone can jump in to Star Citizen Alpha 2.1.2 today! The Free Fly event gives everyone access to three unique parts of the Star Citizen experience:

  • Star Citizen Alpha 2.1.2 – 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 2.1.2 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. This is the first Free Fly that includes Crusader, so there’s more to explore than ever before. Free Fly accounts will have access to the Hornet F7C military fighter, the Aurora LN starter and the Mustang Delta interceptor.

Honestly I don't understand why there are two camps. One Elite Dangerous and Star Citizen. Makes no damn sense doesn't the PC gaming master race deserve two space combat games?

So, E:D guy, but I also try to play SC. Blanket statement doesn't apply. I just get irritated in SC because everything is broken.

Nope. The two camps are one Star Citizen cultist fanbois and two people with a brain.

But seriously as far as SC vs E:D is concerned that is retarded as fuck indeed. Star Citizen won't be finished for years to come so there is more than time and space enough for both games.

And for even more space sims, of course... speaking of which, it actually is quite disappointing that there is no true FreeSpace or Wing Commander or Privateer/Freelancer spiritual successor in the making. Star Citizen has gone full retard and is trying to be way too much at once so some dev should definitely consider doing a real focused space sim like the good old fan favorite classics.

Haven't booted this up in a while.

Probably going to wait for SQ42 to come out before I jump in again. They said 2016...so should be any day now!

Personally I think E:D is highly overrated and with the stunt they pulled with the pricing on their "expansion" they should get all the heat atm. I paid way too much for a shell of a game with the original E:D and now they ask me to pay the exact same amount again for adding just a tad more depth to a game that was as shallow as a Tunisian mudpuddle to begin with.

You're goddamned right I'll try it. Wouldn't miss it for the world. This should be entertaining...for myriad reasons.

Haha if you keep up with development and look at the latest videos then there is PLENTY of reason to doubt very much that they will make it this year.

Oh this is delicious....

So now SQ42 is a seperate episodic game you have to pay for? Ahahahahahahaha!

At the December livestream, we announced that Squadron 42 and Star Citizen will be split into two separate packages in the near future. To update on this: the split will occur on February 14th. Squadron 42 will be available as either a stand alone game or an optional addon for Star Citizen rather than be included by default. If you want to lock in both games for the lowest possible price, consider pledging before this deadline. You can learn more about Squadron 42, our thrilling single-player adventure, here.

FUCKING L O L!!! OMFG! I can't breathe I'm laughing so hard!!!

And what was it again they promised in their KS - that was supposed to be delivered Nov. 2014?

Real quick, Star Citizen is:

A rich universe focused on epic space adventure, trading and dogfighting in first person.

Single Player – Offline or Online(Drop in / Drop out co-op play)

Persistent Universe (hosted by US)

Mod-able multiplayer (hosted by YOU)

No Subscriptions

No Pay to Win

So much for any of those lies. Ahhh man, I cannot wait to see the fanboys going into overdrive to rationalize this bullshit away. Hahahahaha!

I'm not a SC fan (anymore... and never was a fanboy) but it needs to be said that this split is only for new purchases after February 14th, of course. Everyone who bought a package with SC and S42 before that date will get both games as ordered.
Also, this has been known for a long time (since 2013) that they would make SC and S42 separate games at some point.

They keep having free weekends. Usually a game does that when sales are slowing. This game hasn't even launched yet, and they're doing it.

I'm wondering why they're even bothering. They sure as heck don't need more testers.
