Free event coincides with Invictus Launch Week.
Star Citizen

Hey, are you one of the many people who do not yet own any sort of content for Star Citizen? Then today is your lucky day! From now through June 1, Cloud Imperium Games is hosting an 11-day long "Free Fly" event! This event allows new players to explore the slowly but ever growing Star Citizen universe.

Those who already own the game aren't getting left out in the cold blackness of space though. This event will allow you to "witness high flying demonstrations from the UEE's awe-inspiring naval fleet, visit the in-game expo center, and acquire rare ships." Players will be able to test-fly all of the vehicles that they do not yet own. These test-flight events usually don't happen until November, so this is an extra rare treat. Don't worry though, you'll still have to pay real money if you want to buy those ships after this event week is over. That's just business, baby! Space business. What are the business days?

In all honesty, I checked this out last year (or maybe the year prior) and it was quite neat. You really get an appreciation for the scale and detail included in a lot of these ships when you're walking around them all in a massive convention hall. This is especially true when you compare these ships to your tiny one that you got for $1 from a pricing error at an online store years ago.

This is all being done in conjunction with the Invictus Launch Week.

Check out the verse’s biggest, best, and most iconic ships up-close at the Bevic Convention Center on ArcCorp. In addition, pilots can get hands-on test flights for free. With a rotating selection of manufacturer’s taking over the hall every few days, there’s never been a better time to discover everything that Star Citizen has to offer with free fly flights!

Who: Cloud Imperium Games for Star Citizen.

What: Known colloquially as Fleet Week, the Invictus Launch Week marks the period between Emancipation Day and Armistice Day and the beginning of the new year of recruits for the UEE Navy. To honor the citizens who signed up to defend the Human systems during this time, pilots will have the rare opportunity for Free Fly test flights, special promotions, community contests, and more, including a special in-game fire-works display to usher in the arrival of immense capital ships appearing in the ‘verse for the first time.

When: Pilots can expect the Invictus Launch Week to run from May 22 through June 1. In addition, new players can download and play Star Citizen for free during this 11-day event. Head to Roberts Space Industries today to download and play Star Citizen for free during the Invictus Launch Week celebration.
