Star Citizen Free-Fly Event Underway

The latest Free-Fly even is now underway for Star Citizen, Cloud Imperium's long-in-development space game. The Roberts Space Industries Website has the details, revealing that this time around each day will feature vehicles from a different ship manufacturer for your sampling pleasure. Here's word:
To celebrate this year’s premier aerospace event, and commemorate our anniversary, we’re launching a Free-Fly event. From November 24th through December 5th, you have the chance to try some of Star Citizen’s most iconic vehicles for free.

Here’s how it works:

During the promotion, anyone can join Star Citizen’s Persistent Universe. It’s free to experience the game first-hand, but to get out there and start exploring, you’ll need a ship.

Starting on November 24th, every day at 2pm UTC, a different ship manufacturer will make its fleet available for 24 hours. The Free-Fly will end with a celebration of the ships that made it to the final four of the recent Ship Showdown tournament. There may also be some surprises in store for those of you who make the trek out to ArcCorp’s Area18, so stay tuned.

Check out the schedule below to plan your test flights. Have fun and fly safe!

SC was also a reach goal, to boot.

Bullshit. The PU was planned from the start. I remember vividly all the worries and discussions if SC would just be a MMO and if our chance at a Wing Commander successor would suffer from too much online focus. People were very concerned that single player might become an afterthought.

This can also be seen from the Kickstarter FAQ. CIG added the "Is Star Citizen an MMO?" question to the FAQ on October 19th 2012, i.e. just nine days after the campaign launched.

What's true is that the original plan, depending on funding, was to first develop Squadron 42 and then begin development of the PU as soon as funds allowed. The crowdfunding pitch was always for a multiplayer game though. Barring insolvency, they were always going to do the PU regardless.
Just check the Kickstarter page and the stretch goals list. Nowhere on the stretch goal list does it say that the multiplayer is a bonus because it was planned from the start. The additional funding only ensured that development could be started in parallel on SC (PU) and S42.

You can also check out the press section near the bottom on the KS page which links to many articles that were published on day 1 of the campaign (10/10/2012). They all mostly talk about the PU which is exactly why people were scared that Squadron 42 might not get enough attention.
