Star Citizen’s new tutorial videos get you flying without the fuss

    
10

Not to be presumptive or anything, but this is one post that you might want to bookmark if you are ever thinking about trying out Star Citizen. For those not following every twist and turn of the game’s development and current state of testing, the barrier to entry may be too prohibitive.

Enter Cloud Imperium and a spate of new tutorial videos designed to cut through the game’s own red tape and deliver a clear and (relatively) concise path to gaining access to testing and making your way through the game as it is.

The seven posted videos start with the enlistment (account creation) process and proceed through the game basics and up to combat and dogfighting. It may be a little plodding as it goes step by step, but that’s OK — sometimes you need everything spelled out for you – just note that some of the videos are a tiny bit out of date already (for example, the combat tutorial) and likely to become more so over time.

Good luck if you’re strapping in for the stars, and make sure that you read our Choose My Adventure series exploring the world of Star Citizen!

I’ve often wondered what it’s like for a person new to Star Wars to be able to watch all the films in a short period of time for the first time. It would be a wholly different perspective.

I’m still waiting for this game to be considered “released” til I jump in. I’ve waited 7 years, what’s two to seven more?

I paid up, just to support the idea. It’s a grand idea.

I check in from time to time, but won’t take it too seriously until it’s been released officially.
Having said that, it’s been worth the price of admission just to play around in.
I’ve always loved the concept of a space travel/life out there MMORPG and this one shows real promise.

It’s buggy, you’ll die for no reason, fall through floors and be pissed, but being able to hop in a ship and traipse around a solar system is pretty gratifying.

It may never be released, but that’s OK. It’s a glimpse into what’s coming.

Will definitely buy Star Citizen when it’s on 90% off sale (and on Steam)

If you’re new to Star Citizen or coming back after a long break, watching these (or one of the popular YouTube content people’s intro videos) will make your experience a ton less frustrating. :)

People in chat are mostly pretty good about helping, but there’s a lot of things that are hard to explain by typing, so it’s well worth the watch before hopping in.

honestly beyond the videos the best way to learn is to jump in. there is a learning curve but, it would be worth it… except 3.5 is in evo and it’s not worth acclimating to one new control scheme when one can wait a couple weeks for the incoming one to be on ptu for all and get in then when literally everyone will be at best weeks experienced vs a year of experience.

honestly new backer or returning backer, i think it’s now the point that it’s worth waiting a couple weeks or so.

Yeah, 3.5 is going to change everything about how the ships fly and it’s real soon now(tm). But just the basics of getting out of bed, claiming your ship, getting in, starting it up, taking off and using Quantum drive to get somewhere take a lot of explaining via text chat – and that’s not changing. :)

That’s enough to wander around and take some marvelous pictures while you wait a few weeks for 3.5 to drop, if you’re so inclined.

if you’re wondering why the tutorials currently in teh tutorial are about to be out of date, here’s the basic controls from the evocati. you’ll have to venture further to see more unfortunately. tho there’s not a whole lot beyond boring ass threading the loop vid and a nice narrated demo.

anyways i suspect based on watching a good chunk of these vids that they won’t be hard to replace with updated controls in a drag and drop manner in teh playlist. so not much wasted effort in releasing them now. really quick and easily done deals here.
