It's the game that many consider a scam despite being playable and frequently updated, or a fancy tech demo that's been in development for years and will never be finished. Regardless of all the criticism the game is still progressing and now it'll be free to play for a limited time with over 100 different ships to try out.
It's also an excellent time to stress test your new Techfast/Titan/Virco RTX30xx builds. For those without new fancy builds, more than 8GB of RAM is highly recommended if you want a lag-free experience in the denser cities.
To celebrate this year’s premier aerospace event on microTech, we’re launching a Free Fly event. From November 20 through December 2, you have the chance to try some of Star Citizen’s most iconic vehicles for free. All you have to do is to create an account, download the game and jump into the fun.
Here’s how it works:
During the promotion, anyone can explore Star Citizen’s incredible Persistent Universe for free. Even if you don’t own a Star Citizen Game Package, you can try it for free and fly to the Expo in style, as we’re providing every account with an Origin 100i starter ship as a loaner for the time of the IAE 2950.
Starting on November 20 (4pm UTC), each day a different ship manufacturer will take over one of the expo halls for 48 hours. There’s something new to see every day, and nearly everything on display is available to test-fly for free!
Check out the schedule below to plan your test flights. We’ve also created an IAE 2950 FAQ on Spectrum, where we answer questions about the show, including where to go and how to take part in the Free Fly event.
