Star Citizen - IAE 2952 Key Art

The annual Intergalactic Aerospace Expo for Star Citizen is now live from Cloud Imperium Games. This event makes the game free-to-play until November 30th while also providing access to 120 different ships in the game. For those that already own the game, this event gives all players access to those 120 ships to try out, just in case you feel like spending hundreds or even thousands of additional dollars.

As part of this event, Cloud Imperium is also debuting the Drake Corsair ship. This ship, available to fly right now, supports a crew of four and includes "oversized fuel tanks, living quarters, and strong armaments allowing it to boldly venture into the unknown." Other ships will also be revealed, but it sounds like they won't be flyable just yet.
