Star Citizen Free Week

The Roberts Space Industries website has word that another free-fly week is underway for Star Citizen, Cloud Imperium's upcoming open world space game (thanks Rock, Paper, Shotgun). Here's the deal:
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!

Wasn't the game suppose to be done by now so people could play it whenever they wanted?
Absolutely, but at a much lower fidelity level and scale. Go back and watch the original trailer, then look at it now. The funding increased massively and it's far better that CIG invested that in the game than simply pocket it as profit.

But as you said, what was 'PROMISED' and what they are doing are two ENTIRELY different things.

Deliver on what you promised 1st, then add goodies 2nd. But there are things they have done that are just fucking mind boggling like building a motion capture studio.
At the end of the day it wasn't about making a game, it was about financing Chris Roberts to make a STUDIO that is going to make a game which is a huge difference.
One of the reason's I requested a refund (only in for 50 to get both S42 and SC) is because the more I watch the more I get angry. I payed for development of the game. Not posters, not display models and cases, not t-shirts, not costumes and name tags and jewelry for the dev team. I paid for a GAME. Not to support them like a lazy child that lives at home with a room full of trinkets they bought, who then complains about having no money and doesn't have a job.
Using a steering wheel on a Burnout game is like using the Space Shuttle controls to fly a kite.
