Anyone can try Star Citizen free for the next week

You can give Star Citizen a try for the next week if you're keen.


The announcement was made on the Roberts Space Industries website alongside the Star Citizen Alpha 2.1.2 update.

According to the post, the Free Fly event gives everyone access to three parts of Star Citizen, and is the first Free Fly to include Crusader. All Free Fly accounts will have access to the Hornet F7C military fighter, the Aurora LN starter and the Mustang Delta interceptor.

Here's what's included in the trial:

  • Star Citizen Alpha 2.1.2 – Also known as Crusader or the “mini-PU,” it features multiple space stations and environments, scripted missions, places to explore and more.
  • Arena Commander – Arena Commander is a ‘game within a game’ used to develop 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 and explore the  first landing zone, ArcCorp. The Social Module is intended as a starting point for world building.

To get started, all you have to do is set up an account if you don't have one already from the previous Free Fly event.
