Star Citizen Stretch Goals

The upcoming space simulation game Star Citizen is currently the largest crowdfunded video game in history, having recently passed the $110 million mark. Now, before its release sometime in 2016 Cloud Imperium Games have made the game free to everyone for this week using the Alpha 2.2.2 build.

Star Citizen will involve two main gameplay components, including space exploration and combat as well as first-person shooter elements. There are three main modes available this week during this Alpha 2.2.2 build that are as follows:

  • Star Citizen Alpha 2.2.2 – Also known as Crusader or the “mini-PU,” this is the nucleus of the world we’re building! Featuring multiple space stations and environments, scripted missions, places to explore and more, Alpha 2.2.2 is your first look at a much larger universe!
  • Arena Commander – Arena Commander is a ‘game within a game’ that we’ve used to develop our flight mechanics and ship combat balance. Take on human opponents or an AI swarm in single seat fighter.
  • Social Module – Interact with other players while you explore our first landing zone, ArcCorp! The Social Module is intended as a starting point for our world building,

This isn’t the first time that Cloud Imperium Games have allowed free access to Star Citizen, as they offered the same modes around a month ago during the Alpha 2.1.2 build.

The biggest difference this time is that you can try out every currently flyable ship in the game including Scythe and Mustang Omega. This is also the first time that Crusader has been made available to the public, and the Alpha 2.2.2 build has fixed a variety of bugs and glitches so a much cleaner experience is to be expected.

If you are yet to try out the game at all then you can enlist here. The game will release for PC in 2016 but a specific release date is yet to be announced.
