If you’ve always wanted to give Star Citizen a try but haven’t been brave enough to fork over cold, hard credits for a digital spaceship, then perhaps now your time has come. Star Citizen is totally free to play for the rest of October. All you need to do is make a Star Citizen account, enter a promo code, and get lost in space.
Dubbed the Fall 2016 Free Fly, players can log in to Star Citizen and gain access to the F7C-M Super Hornet spaceship and keep playing from now until Sunday, October 30th. From the sounds of things this includes access to everything release for Star Citizen so far, including several open-world missions, the Arena Commander dogfighting module, an early version of the persistent universe and just messing around in your hangar.
The single-player component of Star Citizen, Squadron 42, isn’t included as it was recently delayed until sometime in 2017.
You can sign up for yourself here. Just ‘Enlist’ or login and then enter promo code “FALL2016” to gain access.
Before you embark on Star Citizen’s horrendously huge download however, be sure to head to its game page and check out the system requirements and see if you can run the thing first.
Anyone getting in the cockpit for a free trail? Or are you patiently waiting until the finished game?
