Today Star Citizen developer Cloud Imperium Games announced a brand-new “Free Fly” event for the game.
This means that everyone will be able to enjoy the game for two weeks starting today at 4:00 pm UTC until 11:59 pm UTC on September 23, 2020.
As a personal piece of advice, you should install the game on an SSD if you have the chance to, as it massively improves performance.
The Free Fly event is being held to celebrate the Ship Showdown community popularity contest and will let you pilot the Top-16 most-voted ships in the game.
Below you can catch a few lovely images that were released to celebrate the event.
The number of registered accounts is now well over 2.7 million (currently 2,768,258).
As usual, it’s known that not all of them are paying players. The number includes free accounts created for a variety of reasons, including free fly events.
For the sake of full disclosure, the author of this article has been a Star Citizen backer since the original Kickstarter campaign several years ago, so you should keep that in mind while reading.
