If you've been wondering about Star Citizen but aren't a backer, you'll be able to try out the game for free from November 23rd through November 30th. This week coincides with the launch of the game's first planet calle Hurston with its main enclave, Lorville. This Fly Free week is bigger and better than ever with all ships "flyable" during the event. Each ship will have a 24-hour free fly period on a rotating basis.
Some of the content players can enjoy:
- Object Container Streaming, a processing tool that controls how much of the game’s massive universe must be loaded by player’s CPU. Object Container Streaming is an important behind-the-scenes technical milestone that enables the rapid creation of future content and locations, including the Planet Hurston and its main city, Lorville. Object Container Streaming has led to massive performance gains, which can be seen on the newly launched Star Citizen Telemetry page.
- ‘Face and Voice over IP’ allows players to connect their webcams and control their in-game character’s facial expressions with their own, creating a new level of immersion never before seen in video games.
- FPS AI Enemies and Missions to populate the universe with NPC enemies to hunt or be hunted by.
- ‘Scramble Race’ Missions for players to compete across Star Citizen’s massive planetary bodies.
