PSA: Star Citizen’s free-fly weekend and Squadron 42 split

    
176

We’ve got a double Star Citizen PSA for you this weekend.

First, Star Citizen is open this weekend for yet another “free-fly” event; anyone can sign up to check out the 2.1.2 build of the alpha (aka Crusader aka the “mini-PU”), arena commander, and the social module.

And second, Cloud Imperium has reiterated that Squadron 42 will be splitting off from Star Citizen packages, so you have just about two weeks left to pledge if you want S42 included in your SC package. Wrote the studio,

At the December livestream, we announced that Squadron 42 and Star Citizen will be split into two separate packages in the near future. To update on this: the split will occur on February 14th. Squadron 42 will be available as either a stand alone game or an optional addon for Star Citizen rather than be included by default. If you want to lock in both games for the lowest possible price, consider pledging before this deadline.

We’ve also tucked the latest Around the Verse and yet another Gillian Anderson Squadron 42 interview below.

Lethality MagmaFist Akami Beat me to it, I was just about to post those instructions.

Note that you can filter the My Gear section of the Hangar to only show Game Packages, too.

MagmaFist Lethality Akami Indeed!
Head to your Hangar page, and look for your package… if that’s all you ever bought, then that will be the only thing on the page.
Click the triangle to expand and see the details… you will see a list similar to below (depending on what/when you bought) but the key is to look for the things marked with the red arrows – those are the two game downloads. You definitely have them unless you’re looking at a “standalone ship”!
Hope this helps…

Lethality Akami Is there anywhere in the My Account page or My Profile that shows you get both games? Or is that something that will show later? I bought a $65 package back in 2013.

RagnarTheDrunk You’re getting both.  People who already pledged get both. This is about people who pledge going forward.

GoJammit Well, I read Massively’s article. Didn’t watch the videos (at work) but now I see the links after all the vids. Sorry for being a dumbass, but thanks for the reply

Did you read the article at all? No, you are fine if you bought it already or within the next week.

Wait a second – I thought I was getting both Star Citizen and S42 when I signed on originally… is this not the case now? That transaction is done and over with… can they simply lower the value of what I initially bought?

alexjwillis Squadron 42 episodes are like Star Wars episodes IV, V, & VI.  Each story is a full story, but is part of a larger narrative.  If you buy a package now, then you get Star Citizen & the first episode of the Star Citizen trilogy.  The other two will come out in the future as stand alone games
