Star Citizen is letting everyone fly for free this week

    
108

Fellow players, the galaxy is your oyster this week, for Star Citizen is allowing anyone to test drive one of its ships in the current pre-alpha build.

It’s called the PAX East 2015 Free Flight Week, and here’s how it works: You’ll need to go to the promotion page, enter in the code PAXEASTFREEFLY2K15, and download the game. Following that, you can pilot an Anvil Hornet F7C trainer ship in the Arena Commander module or walk around the hanger deck.

The Free Flight Week will go until March 15th, so get in there and fly! And if you want to get on board with the Star Citizen hype, check out the new damage model video after the jump.

Darkwalker75  I don’t think backers know more then someone who isn’t . i think its more a generation of people who know more then  another.  Back in my day we had to fill out daily reports and getting in a beta wasn’t  always an option. Now betas are just glorified Pr stunts.  Sad really .  this kickstarter thing doesn’t help at all.

melissamcdon hmmm certainly sounds driver related.  Check your Event Manager in windows for possible issues. 
Hopefully you won’t just see generic Microsoft “it crashed but we aint got a clue why” messages.

Koshelkin Awesome! I was a huge syndicate fan and Grim Dawn looks great too. There ought to be a early access list here on MO.. :)

Downloaded it, seemed more like 20GB than 30 as I’d heard, but every_time_i_launch_it it crashes either whilst loading or it gives me a 5 second glimpse of a hanger bay with a spaceship in it then a black screen.
and it hard freezes windows and I gotta hit the restart button.. .ugh.
I’ll update my Nvidia drivers tonight and see if it helps.

That’s the weird part, the Downloader doesn’t seem to be an executable. I’ll try it again tonight when I get home. BTW, I am so glad to see Massively continuing on, you guys are the best MMO news available.

MichaelCavagnaro Just ignore the missing spacecraft (there will be a craft waiting in the hangar) and click the download installer button.
