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!

Actually if you read the carefully crafted announcement they're trying to entice existing backers to BUY MORE®.

So they're running these things every other week now it seems and with zero progress to show for it. Can't afford to go to Pax either? Thungs must be worse than previously thought.

It's not the same game pitched on Kickstarter. One of the reasons I got a refund.

Great signature choice. I always liked that quote.

From the same episode I also like:
Capt. Picard: I understand what you've done here, Q. But I think the lesson could have been learned without the loss of 18 members of my crew.
Q: If you can't take a little bloody nose, maybe you ought to go back home and crawl under your bed. It's not safe out here. It's wondrous, with treasures to satiate desires both subtle and gross. But it's not for the timid.

Truer words were never spoken.

They should just finish up and release the SP game as a separate game all together (which they may already do can't remember)
That should help with the development cost of the MMO

If this thing ever launches all these ship sales are going to make it like joining a late-game MMO for new players. Lowly newbs who dare to purchase the final game will be smited from above by the gamblers for their audacity to exist.

I agree. Throw in a number of EA games as well.

Of the first thirteen posts, five are Kxmode trolling. I mean, how dare CIG let people play the game for free to decide for themselves whether it's worth buying! Scandalous!

And what game would that be? 5 years and 100 mil later and all anyone sees is the same tech demo they've been letting people play for 2 years now.

Ah, now eventually you do plan to have dinosaurs on your, on your dinosaur tour, right? Hello?
