Cloud Imperium Games announces a new Free Fly Weekend gets underway today,
offering everyone the chance to check out the Star Citizen Alpha 3.5.
Tomorrow, Cloud Imperium will make Star Citizen Alpha 3.5 free to
download and play for any player to celebrate the launch of Star
Citizen's city-covered planet, ArcCorp. First revealed at CitizenCon
2017, ArcCorp is a massive planet almost entirely covered in man-made
structures. Players on ArcCorp will travel the bustling plazas and
neon-hued alleys of Area18 (the planet's main landing zone), uncover
local urban culture, meet colorful locals, and find new ways to make
To celebrate, Cloud Imperium Games will launch a “Free Fly” event
encompassing five ships that bring the Star Citizen experience to life.
During the promotion, it will be free for anyone to join the Star
Citizen Persistent Universe and play across Star Citizen's more than 30
varying mission types, 10 traversable moons, several “rest stops” and
more. Players can download Star Citizen free here.
Star Citizen Alpha 3.5 includes numerous features new to Star Citizen,
Playable Female Characters - at long last, Star
Citizen adds playable female characters. Implementing playable females
meant re-working nearly every interactable object in the game for use
with an additional player model, from seating to carrying to shooting
ArcCorp - a sprawling urban planet covered by city
space, ArcCorp features the new Area 18 Landing Zone, where players
will find a neon lit cityscape teeming with life.
New Flight Model - an all new in-game flight control
system that applies to all ships in Star Citizen, incorporating a total
overhaul to the entire flight experience and adds gravity to
in-atmosphere planetary bodies. This New Flight Model is also applied
to all AI controlled pilots in Star Citizen.
CIG Character Customization Technology – An updated
system for customizing your player character in the Persistent
Universe, which includes new customization technology empowering
players to select from up to three source heads and blend each of their
various facial features into a fully customized character. This
replaces Star Citizen's previous 100-plus character permutations with a
near-infinite pool of character customizations that is used for both
player and NPC characters. All customizations are available for both
male and the all-new female player character selections.
FoIP + VoIP Improvements – New video streaming
technology which allows players to participate in video comms calls no
matter how far away they are in the Persistent Universe. Previously, as
other players were "streamed out" from server clients, they would no
longer be eligible as targets for a comms call. This update enables
players to call anyone in the Star Citizen Persistent Universe through
tech that evaluates your client and streams to the other party's client
as video data.
New Environmental AI Bounty Hunting - AI bounty
hunters will now attack players with bounties placed on their heads,
and AI security forces will attack players with high crime stats.
Anyone who plays Star Citizen between May 1 and May
8 will have access to the following five ships:
Anvil Arrow - Featuring an ultra-aerodynamic frame,
slight profile, and the most advanced maneuvering thruster tech
available, the Arrow shines in Alpha 3.5's new flight atmospheric
flight model. It's the most agile ship in its class, and can hold its
own in a knock-down-drag-out dogfight with quad missile racks and a
full complement of countermeasures.
MISC Prospector – equipped with a mining laser, the
Prospector is Star Citizen's starter mining ship.
Drake Cutlass Black – this ship packs real firepower
with both piloted guns as well as a manned turret. It is flown by
multiple crew members to haul and protect cargo. This is one of our
most popular ships for both new and returning players.
Aegis Avenger Titan – one of our cargo ships, the
Titan is a light cargo hauler version of the Avenger specifically
kitted out to deliver payloads across the 'Verse.
Drake Dragonfly – a two seater hoverbike, the
Dragonfly is equipped with a laser cannon and is one of the best ways
to navigate surface-side in Star Citizen. The Dragonfly can fit easily
in the cargo hold of multiple ships, giving players an on-the-ground
option after landing.
